Recording Breaking News
There are literally records out there being broke each and every single day of our lives. You may have even broken a record yourself, and you aren't even aware of it. In this world today there's just about a record for anything that you can imagine. We're going to take a look here at some very unique records. Records like the oldest, the heaviest, the tallest, the largest, the biggest, the longest, the widest, the shortest, and so on. If you would like you will even have the opportunity here to help us establish our very own world record.
Lets start off with something that you'll never guess. Who do you think the world's largest tire manufacture is? For starters it's not Firestone, Good Year, or Bridge-stone. The record belongs to Lego. Lego has easily beaten all of the other tire manufacturers, and they produce millions of tires every year.
The record for the oldest living tree officially belongs to a spruce tree in Sweden that has a root system that's been continuously growing for almost 10,000 years. The oldest standing tree is a bristle-cone pine in California that's been around for over 4,600 years.
The very first thing to have ever be sold on EBAY was actually broken. It was a broken laser pointer, and it fetched a whopping $14.83 on the market.
The oldest bride was married at 102 years old to an 83 year old man. Minnie Munro married Dudley Reid in Australia, and who says love ends at a certain age.
In the world of food there's the largest meatball weighing in at 1,110 pounds in Columbus, Ohio. The heaviest wedding cake tipped the scales at 7.5 tons, and it took a team of 57 chefs to make & bake it.
The tallest living man is Turkish born Sultan Kösen, and he towers high up into the sky at 8 foot 3 inches. In the animal world the tallest dog is a Great Dane by the name of Zeus, and he's a whopping 3 foot 8 inches tall. Can you imagine how much it would cost to feed these two?
Lady Gaga might currently be the most famous celebrity on the planet, but Charlie Sheen racked up well over one million followers on Twitter in just a little over 24 hours. I don't think that nobody on the hub pages can touch that!
Today phones are getting smaller and smaller with cell phones and smart phones. However the Netherlands holds the record for the biggest telephone. It towers 19 foot 11 inches into the air, and it weighs a hefty 3.8 tons. A crane is needed just to raise the handset to make a call.
Everyone knows that the longest wall is in China, and that Hong Kong has the most sky scrapers. But did you know that the shortest street was in Scotland, and that's it's only 6 foot 9 inches long. You'll never have to worry about running out of gas on that road.
Hamburg, Germany has the most bridges with over 2,302 of them. The widest bridge is in Sydney Australia, and It's 160 feet wide. That's wide enough for for 8 lanes of traffic, two railroad tracks, one bicycle track, and a footpath. The chicken wouldn't have any excuse there for not getting to the other side.
Star wars is the most successful merchandising franchise in all of the motion picture business. The movie has pulled in over 30 billion dollars. Maybe all of those Star Wars groupies know more than we think.
The longest burning light bulb in the world is still burning in California. It's a little hand blown 4 watt light bulb, that been burning ever since it was first turned on in 1901. I guess someone forgot to turn the lights off when they left.
My graduating class in High school had over 600 folks in it. Now if you all think that your school was big, then you haven't seen anything yet. There's a school in India that has an enrollment of over 39,000 children. When the City Montessori School first opened in 1959 there were only 5 students. Try finding yourself in that graduating class photo.
