But that’s not a problem for librarian Graham Barker who is celebrating being recognised by the Guinness Book of Records – for collecting ‘belly button fluff. The year-old plucks the ‘fluff’ while he waits for his shower to warm up.
The colour depends on what towel Graham uses. I had an empty film canister with me which became a perfect receptacle, ‘That’s all there was to it – no obsession or grand plan, just simple curiosity. The lint Graham Barker has collected over the years which is now an official record It never goes mouldy and does not smell, which means lint from 20 years ago is ‘indistinguishable’ from the new stuff.
Graham has now sold three of his large jars to a museum for an undisclosed sum and is a quarter of the way to filling the fourth. They are amused or surprised that such a collection exists.

And just how much dedication do you need to be a record-breaker.

In a bid to show enthusiasts that adding all-wheel-drive hasn’t changed the M5’s inner idiot, BMW went out once again on Dec. If this sounds familiar, it should. BMW set an absurd drift distance record back in when Johan Schwarz, a BMW performance driving instructor slid around the Bavarian brand’s Spartanburg facility for This time, Schwartz crushed his record by mercilessly shredding tires which we can only assume were modified hockey pucks or Soviet tractor tires for a total of BMW That distance required some serious technology to make it possible, most notably a custom-developed mid-drift refueling device because, as you might imagine, roasting tires with a twin-turbo V8 is going to sip more than a little gas.
BMW enlisted the services of Mooresville, NC-based automotive performance engineering wizards Detroit Speed to create a dry break fuel filler which works a bit like the midair refueling system on a fighter jet. It was a big win all around. BMW “Although we practiced the refueling several times before the Guinness World Records title attempt, there was very little margin for error,” said Matt Butts, the head development driver for Detroit Speed.
Schwartz hopped back into his M5 and was joined by BMW Performance Driving Center chief instructor Matt Mullins in another M5, and they executed a one-hour water-assisted tandem drift over a length of Schwartz and Mullins will be sharing all of their dorifto madness with the folks at CES with drift demonstrations at the top of every hour.
11 Really Bizarre World Records
The passion and commitment shown by surfers and the power of oceans and Nature have transformed surfing into an extreme sport, quite capable of testing the toughest limits of humans. The Guinness World Records have an interesting number of stunts and accomplishments that are breathtaking and, sometimes, funny at the same time. You might get this one right.
Athletes sprinting across a finishing line at breakneck speed might typically be the image that springs to mind when thinking of a world record – but impressive feats come in all shapes and sizes.
Using a scramjet engine, the unpiloted, 12 foot-long aircraft achieved Mach 6. The accomplishment will be included in the Guinness World Records book, set for release this time next year, as follows: The X A was boosted to an altitude of 29, m 95, ft by a Pegasus rocket launched from beneath a B B aircraft. The revolutionary ‘scramjet’ aircraft then burned its engine for around 11 seconds during flight over the Pacific Ocean.
The final flight in the Hyper-X program is scheduled to take place in October, when another X A aircraft will attempt to fly at Mach 10 — ten times the speed of sound — or 7, mph. The March 27 flight was part of NASA’s Hyper-X program, designed to demonstrate advanced high-speed propulsion system concepts to overcome one of the greatest aeronautical research challenges — air-breathing hypersonic flight.
The advantage of air-breathing flight is that the vehicle, whether it is aircraft or spacecraft, scoops the air its engines need from the atmosphere rather than carrying heavy, bulky tanks, as rockets do. The challenge is to introduce fuel, ignite it and produce positive thrust while highly compressed air rushes through the engine in mere milliseconds — roughly analogous to lighting a match and keeping it burning in a hurricane-force wind. Compared to rocket-powered vehicles like the Space Shuttle, scramjets promise more airplane-like operations for increased affordability, flexibility and safety in ultra high-speed flights within the atmosphere and into Earth orbit.
The X A flight easily set a world speed record for an air-breathing engine aircraft.
