Human Body Records

2 Extraordinary World Records That Prove The Human Body And Mind Is Capable Of Anything


If you were over the age of 6 in 1998, then you’ll remember when Guinness World Records had its primetime TV show. For many of us, the show was a shining example of how bizarre and extraordinary the human body could be. More often than not, it featured people who could perform or show off their world record consistently — some people ate metal, while others covered themselves in bees, and others acted as human speed bumps. There’s no shortage of humans doing amazing things, but here are our picks for the eight coolest, most extraordinary records the human body could complete — in no particular order (By: Medicaldaily).

Farthest eyeball pop

Kim Goodman (USA) can pop her eyeballs to a protrusion of 12 mm (0.47 in) beyond her eye sockets. Her eyes were measured in Istanbul, Turkey, on 2 November 2007.


The Hairiest Teenager

The hairiest teenager is Supatra “Nat” Sasuphan (Thailand) according to the Ferriman Gallwey method of evaluation of Hirsutism. She was measured on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Rome, Italy, on 4 March 2010. Meeting Nat was one of the many highlights of the show for on-screen adjudicator, Marco Frigatti. “She’s a remarkable little girl,” says Marco. “She’s proud of who she is and wants to be treated just like everyone else. She’s not the one with the problem – it’s only those who treat her differently who’ve got the problem.”

And Nat agrees. "I don't feel any different to anyone else, and I've got lots of friends at school." Now a celebrity, she's starting to enjoy her fame, and was thrilled by the chance to visit a foreign country. "It's really fun and exciting," she told us, "and it's my first time on a plane. I've never been outside Thailand." But her most exciting experience was the moment she was crowned Hairiest Child. "Being hairy makes me special," she said, adding: "This the happiest day of my life!"
