Many of us love to exceed our achievements — whether we are gunning for an Olympic world record or for our personal records done straight from our backyards. It’s a part of our nature to push ourselves to the limit. Many people are trying to outdo other people (and also themselves) so they can be included in the Guinness Book of World Records. With each passing year new records break the old ones and the standards are very high. However, in this gallery we are not compiling who is just the tallest or the shortest. We also list some of the wackiest, silliest, and weirdest records tallied in Guinness’ history (we also include one amazing feat that was rejected by Guinness).
