Insane World Records-2

World's Longest FIngernails
We're shuddering just looking at the picture above and simply dying to ask this woman--Chris "The Duchess" Walton--how she engages in regular day-to-day activities necessary for survival with claws like that but we'll refrain. In stead, here are the facts.

As of September 14th, 2011, this woman's nails measure 10 feet, 2 inches on her left hand and 9 feet 7 inches on her right hand. She's been growing them for 18 years. Of course, this still doesn't hold a candle to 68-yeard-old Lee Redmond who started growing her nails in 1979 and grew them to a whopping 28 feet, 4.5 inch length. She 'tragically' lost her curling claws in a car accident in 2008 however.

Longest Ear Hair
And here's one more of our country men doing us proud in the Guiness Book of World Records yet again…we think. Indian citizen, Anthony Victor, holds the record of the longest ear hair. Though we’re not quite sure how proud one should be about this hirsute phenomenon on one's ears, Victor has hair measuring up to 7.12 inches sprouting from the center of his outer ears.

Our heartiest congratulations Victor!

Longest Maggot Bath
Of all the hair-brained ideas we've seen on this list, this has to be the absolute worst! It's well beyond our comprehension why anyone might even want to do this but a British woman, Christine Martin, sat in a maggot bath for a whole hour and 30 minutes on some day in 2002.

Unsurprisingly, no one has ever contested her record and we sincerely doubt anyone will in the future either. This record's yours for the keeping Christine! Hope the maggots were worth it.

Farthest Nasal Ejection Of Spaghetti
This one's a classic example of taking the childhood fascination of stuffing noodles up one's nose and turning it into something useful. Well, kind of anyway. 

Kevin Cole of New Mexico, USA, holds the record for blowing the longest spaghetti strand out f a nostril in a single blow. It seems Cole started out small, spraying Ramon noodles out of his nose first and only then progressed to the heavier stuff--spaghetti! This epic achievement of his was recorded in 1998 and his spaghetti strand measured around 7.5 inches.
