A person, they say, uses only 5-10 percent of the possibilities of your brain, as well as of your entire body. Probably everyone heard that under certain circumstances weak women are easy tearing iron chains that an ordinary person sometimes jumps over ten-meter abyss, and so on. By the way, the masters of oriental martial arts and yoga clearly demonstrate to us what is capable of the human body, if you release its energy and remove all sorts of restrictions that he received from early childhood due to improper upbringing.

But here’s what is interesting, often a person for the sake of recognition and world fame ready to show such records that it would seem that no one are needed. And all this is done for one thing – to get into the Book of Records Guinness.

It’s amazing that the organizers of this popular book themselves encourage the strangest champions who set here such “miracles”. So, here are the most unusual Guinness World Records:

Probably every cyclist, not even very professional, at least once tried to ride without using hands. If doing so all this backwards – it turns out even cooler. And here is Christian Adam from Germany (the city of Lubeck) showed something amazing in general – He rode a bicycle for five hours, sitting on his back and at the same time played the violin. During this time, the “amazing violinist” covered more 60 kilometers of track. In any case, it’s even amazing if not has the slightest practical benefit …

(now also a writer), which for the sake of achieving her dream she looked like a perfect woman and underwent 52 plastic surgeries, having spent more than 100 thousand dollars that it received in inheritance.

Many try to compete in this, but the length of the hair is often depends not on the whim or desire of her mistress, but on some genetic capabilities of the body. Today the longest Chinese Chinese girl Xi Quiping produced hair – over 5 meters. As the owner of this record, long the braid that she has grown since childhood, that is, she did not cut at all since 1973, brings her a lot of inconvenience, because wash and combing five-meter hair – the whole problem, not to mention other inconveniences, for example, when traveling and so on.

But this record, although it may have a certain practical the favor also seems insane. Italian Michelle Santelia in 2008 demonstrated truly fantastic abilities in typing on a computer. Using multiple keyboards without any letters on them, he typed the text of 67 books on different languages, including Hebrew and Ancient Chinese, common volume of 23 thousand pages or 3.5 million words (a stack of books in 4 meters high). And all this was printed in reverse order, then there is from the end of the book to the beginning. Michelle didn’t errors or typos …


It is difficult to say which of these records (and such much more achievements than we mentioned here) more crazy, in any case, they demonstrate two things – huge human abilities and his unlimited desire to become famous, and sometimes in any way …
