Since 1955, the Guinness World Records have documented and cataloged numerous achievements, achievements, and characteristics of the world and its people in an annual publication.

While numerous records have been documented, most are broken after a while, with many broken several times after their first recording.

There are some that have never been broken, and although they could certainly one day be broken, they have been standing since the day they were set up.

10. World’s Tallest Man & Woman


There are many people who many consider giants, but only one man has set the record as the greatest giant in history. The greatest person ever born, whose size was medically recorded, was Robert Wadlow. Although he was born to average parents and weighed 8.7 pounds at birth, Wadlow was destined to stand above the rest of humanity, see 8, 11.1″ (2.72 meters). Unfortunately, he lived only until the age of 22, although there was no evidence that he would not have grown any further if he had lived longer[1]

The largest woman ever to live was Zeng Jinlian from the village of Yujiang in Hunan Province, China. At the time of her death in 1982, at the age of 17, she stood at 8,1″. Already at the age of only four months, she began to grow abnormally and managed to grow to a handsome number of 5,1.5″ before her fourth birthday. At the age of thirteen, she was already 7,1.5″. Her record high was recorded by Guinness World Records as the largest woman ever documented. However, other women who were smaller received a record because they were the largest woman in the world at the time of the recording.[2]

9. World’s Largest Office Building


When people think of perhaps the largest office building in the world, they probably imagine a skyscraper stretching into the sky, but in reality, it is only five stories high. Of course, height doesn’t matter – what counts is the number of square meters in terms of office space and staff capacity. The building, which set the record in 1955 and still holds it today, is the Pentagon of the United States in Washington, D.C., with a total area of more than 6.6 million square meters.

Of these, more than 3.7 million square feet of office space is spread over five above-ground floors with two basements. The Pentagon has more than three times as much space as the Empire State Building in New York City, and its numerous corridors span 17.5 miles. However, due to the five concentric rings integrated into the design of the building, the walk between two points of the building does not take more than seven minutes. As far as personnel is concerned, more than 31,000 people have worked at the Pentagon at the same time.[3]

8. World’s Richest Man (Adjusted)


In 2020, the world’s richest man was Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, who had amassed a personal fortune of 146.9 billion dollars. You could buy anything Amazon sells several thousand times, but it’s not the largest personal fortune a single person has had in world history (adjusted for inflation). The person who outscored Bezos in personal wealth was none other than John D. Rockefeller, a man who controlled 90% of oil production in the United States. In 1913, his personal fortune was reported at 900 million dollars.

Of course, that was 1913 dollars, but if you adjust it to inflation and add the accumulation of wealth until his death in 1937, Rockefeller’s value jumps to 418 billion dollars. No one else in world history could compare himself to this amount of wealth, although it is difficult to compare him to someone like an Egyptian pharaoh or Augustus Caesar so that he holds the record of being the richest person in modern history. Forbes declared Rockefeller the richest person in history in 2006 when his adjusted wealth reached 305.3 billion dollars, and since then it has only risen.[5]

7. World’s Highest Grossing Movie (Adjusted)

In 2019, Avengers: Endgame will set a new record as the film with the highest revenue ever, pushing James Cameron’s Avatar into second place. Endgame earned an impressive 2,797,800,564 dollars at the global box office, and while it is likely that record will one day be broken, the film, which holds the record for inflation-adjusted inflation, has been held by the same film since 1939. Blown away by the wind, it was insanely popular when it came out in 1939, after winning 10 Academy Awards after 13 nominations at the 12th Academy Awards.

The film managed to make 390 million dollars at the global box office, which would be a lot of money in today’s economy, but in 1939 it was staggeringly high. Adjusted for inflation, winds in 2020 earned the equivalent of 7.2 billion dollars. Even more impressive is the number of tickets sold compared to Avatar, which sold 78.3 million tickets. Blown away by the wind” sold a staggering 225.7 million tickets when it was released, a figure that no modern film can reasonably break[6].

6. World’s Longest Fingernails

If you’ve ever posted a copy of Guinness World Records, you’ve probably seen a picture of Shridhar Chillal from Pune, India, and you’re terrified of what you’ve seen. That’s because Shridhar Chillal holds the record with the longest fingernails in the world, a record he’s achieved by not cutting his fingernails for 66 years. Of course, with such nails it would not be possible to use the hand for much of everything, so he let the nails grow only on the left side while he kept his right hand neatly trimmed.

When his nails were finally cut, they measured at a disturbing 29,, 10.1″ (909.6 cm). He began to grow them – or stopped cutting them, depending on what makes sense – when he was 14. A teacher chastised him for breaking a nail, and from that point on he stopped cutting it. It is not easy to have nails on his hand for so long, and as a result, he suffered from severe pain and insomnia. He finally had them cut so they could be in Ripley’s Believe It or Not! could be exhibited. In Times Square.[7]

5. World’s Most Targeted Person (By Lightning)


Do you know the saying that lightning never strikes twice in the same place? This is complete nonsense, which is clear if you have ever learned what a lightning rod is, but whatever the case, the probability of being struck by lightning at any given time in a person’s life is 1/15,300.[8]  This is a rather rare case, but what about being struck by lightning more than once in a lifetime? If it doesn’t happen a fraction of a second after the first flash, the chances are astronomical, but don’t say that to Roy C. Sullivan – he was hit seven times, and he survived!

His misfortune earned him the nickname “The Human Lightning Conductor,” and while a single lightning strike often kills a man, Sullivan survived seven strikes, beginning in 1942, and ending in 1977 with his last blow. He was not spared the blows and compiled a list of injuries, including the loss of a ten-agel, his two eyebrows, a burn to his left shoulder, the burning of his hair … twice and burns to the legs, ankle, chest, and abdomen. After surviving seven lightning strikes, he reportedly died of a broken heart by suicide in 1983.[9]

4. World’s Fattest Man


There are records that you want to set and those that you don’t want to set. When it comes to weight, there is a man who has weighed much more than anyone else in the recorded story. Jon Brower Minnoch set the record for the heaviest human being ever recorded, and when he was heaviest, he weighed a whoy 1,400 pounds. (635 kg). Minnoch was never a thin man, and when he was 12 years old, he weighed 294 lbs. (133 kg). At the age of 22, he stood 6,, 1″ (1.85 meters), and weighed 500 pounds. (230 kg)

Minnoch’s weight became a significant factor in his declining health, and it was found that his weight was due to a condition in which the body produces excess fluid. He was hospitalized for 16 months, where he lost 924 pounds. (419 kg) and thus almost set another record, which gave it the second-largest weight loss of all time. Unfortunately, a year later, he weighed nearly a thousand pounds, and less than two years later he was dead. At the time of his death, he weighed 798 pounds. (262 kg).[10]

3. World’s Most Decorated Olympian Of All Time


It’s incredibly difficult to win a gold medal in any sport because you have to compete with the best athletes from all over the world and you can only try every four years. Winning a single medal is an incredible achievement that automatically classifies a person as at the top of their sport. So for anyone who wins more than one medal, it’s a brilliant explanation that he’s the best person in the world in what he does. That is certainly the case for Michael Phelps, who currently holds the record of winning more Olympic gold medals than anyone else in history.

In total, Phelps won an incredible 28 Olympic medals over the course of his sporting career. Of these, 23 are gold, three are silver and two are bronze. In addition to these impressive achievements, Phelps also set a large number of Guinness World Records, including the fastest long-distance swim, most silver medals in a single Olympic swimming race, and more. Since he managed to win several medals in five Olympic appearances over the course of his career, there is little doubt that he will hold this record indefinitely.[11]

2. World’s Most Atomic Blasts Survived


When the United States dropped the first nuclear weapon used in the war on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, between 90,000 and 146,000 Japanese citizens were killed, either immediately or over time due to radiation burns and exposure. Two days after the “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima, another bomb called “Fat Boy” was dropped on Nagasaki, and this explosion claimed between 39,000 and 80,000 lives. More than half of the dead were killed on the first day of each bombing, and few people survived to tell the story. One man witnessed both bombings, and his record is a record that will hopefully never be broken.

When the first bomb was dropped, Tsutomu Yamaguchi was on a business trip to Hiroshima, and miraculously survived. After the city was destroyed, he returned to his hometown, which unfortunately was called Nagasaki. He arrived just in time to witness the second bomb and survive it, which means he is either twice lucky or twice doomed, given what he has experienced and witnessed. Tsutomu Yamaguchi not only survived the war but also survived the century, turned 93, and succumbed to stomach cancer in 2010.[12]

1. World’s Record Holding Record Holder


For most people who want to break or set a record, it’s enough to do it only once to strengthen your ego and give you something to brag about in front of your friends. This works for the vast majority of people, but Ashrita Furman doesn’t care about breaking a record; It’s important to him to break as many records as possible, and that’s why he holds the record for the most broken records in history! Yes, he is a record-breaking record breaker and has broken more than 600 records in over 30 years.

Not all of his records are set, so there are only about 200 at the moment, but that doesn’t diminish his many achievements, proving that there are all sorts of weird records that Guinness has verified. The first record he broke was to eliminate 27,000 honed men in six hours and 45 minutes, and from then on he was addicted to it. He broke records for balancing a chainsaw on his chin, most of the fire torches ignited and went out in a minute, most of the arrows broke with his neck in a minute and hundreds more. Since he has broken so many, it is unlikely that anyone will spend the same time and energy to break him, but you never know.[13]
