The World's Most Amazing Women
"Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible"
Some bizarre, some amazing, they all have one thing in common. These women are World Record holders for their own unique category. These particular female record holders caught the attention of my eye, as I am sure they will do with you. I hereby present to you some incredible highlights of pure human achievement
Longest Woman's Hair -
- Xia Aifeng,36, China
This hair is simply amazing. Her long hair measures at an incredible 2.42metres (8 foot). Pretty long considering Xia has not had her tresses cut in a span of nearly sixteen years. Apparently it takes this woman a couple of hours to wash her tresses, a chore most of us would simply rather pass.
Most Pierced Woman -
- Elaine Davidson, Scotland
This incredible woman is reported to have a staggering total of 5,920 body piercings total. She has more piercings in her genitalia than in any other part of the body, with an estimation of 500 in that rather delicate area. There are more than 192 piercings in her face alone. Her body piercings certainly have created a look that gives her that Zulu, inhuman look.The total weight of all her piercings tips the scales at 3 kilograms.
Smallest Waist -
- Cathie Jung, North Carolina
Cathy Jung holds the world record with the smallest waist, measuring a mere 15 inches. She openly admits she achieved this look by strapping herself into tight corsets for a period of 25 years.She claims it has not done her body any harm and has actually assisted in the support of her spine. This woman is an incredible 70 years of age, showing that age is no barrier in the quest for beauty. Apparently her waist is the same size as that of a large bottle of Mayonnaise
Longest Woman's Fingernails -
- Lee Redmond, USA
When Redmond's nails were measured on 23 February 2008, they broke the World Record at a staggering 8.65 m (28 ft 4.5 in) in length.Apparently she had been growing them for a total of 28 years without cutting them once.They certainly are not my cup of tea, it makes me wonder how on earth she could possible manage to do simple chores, or basically anything at all with such bizarre nails. Mayhmong's latest hub on nail technicians also stars Lee Redmond. Can you believe she is a hairdresser?. Look out Edward Scissorhand.
Longest Legs -
- Svetlana Pankratova, Russia
This woman is the World Record holder of the longest legs measuring in at a mammoth 132 centimetres (4 ft 4 in) in length. Although she has the longest legs, she is not the world's tallest woman. Her height is only 6 foot 4, still incredibly tall for a woman. She is an ex-basketball player, doing well in her sport due to her impressive build. Can you imagine how difficult it is for this woman when it comes to shopping for clothes. I would say without doubt her skirts would be tailor made without doubt.
Largest Breasts -
- Sheyla Hershey, Brazil
This 28 year old's breasts are the largest silicone breasts reported at an unnatural size of 38KKK . There is much controversy regarding the huge size of her implants, an obvious health hazard to any woman with a chest anywhere near this size. She has had a reported eight enlargement surgeries so far and still desires to enlarge her breasts even further. She broke Texas laws which prohibited her from further enlargement surgeries.
"I want to look better each day, every day. Everybody's got a dream inside, you know? And, it's good when you can make your dream come true."..Sheyla Hershey
Most Beautiful Bum -
- Kristina Dimitrova, Bulgaria
Kristina only 19, was recently crowned 'The World's Most Beautiful Bottom', in a contest that saw her compete against 26 contestants from around the globe. The competition provided a launch for her into a successful modelling career. To even get into the competition, a total of 15,000 hopeful woman worldwide posted in a picture of their bottoms in the hope of being the selected 28, who competed. The winner also received a cash prize of $14,000.
The Furthest Eye-Ball Protrusion -
- Kim Goodman, Chicago
I remember seeing this woman on television a few years ago and was just rendered dumb-found. She can pop her eyeballs to a protrusion of 12 mm (0.47 in) beyond her eye sockets. No-one else in the world that I am aware of is capable of doing this remarkable feat. She has the ability to pop them in and out at her own choosing.
