It is in human nature that we love to push our limits and go beyond the limits to explore things in a different perspective which sometimes leads us to some sort of experience and sometimes to some weird, strange and bizarre happenings. We cannot stop ourselves from doing strange things and bragging about ourselves that I did the most dangerous thing or the prettiest thing. Or this is my record etc. To decide who has done the most bizarre thing, and who has broken whom's record, a Guinness book of world record was found only for this purpose.
Guinness World Records, known from its inception in 1955 until 2000 as The Guinness Book of Records and in previous United States editions as The Guinness Book of World Records, is a reference book published annually, listing world records both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world. The brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was co-founded by brothers Norris and Ross McWhirter in Fleet Street, London in August 1954.
And in this article, I am going to write about The Most Strange and Insane World Records ever made. If you wanted to know the weirdest and bizarre records which are ever made, then continue reading this blog. So without wasting any time, let us just get started with my today’s topic.
1. The Most Stretchiest Skin Ever
The thought of The Most Stretchiest Skin Ever looks completely insane. A Normal human cannot stretch their skin more than a few millimeters. Meet Garry Turner who is able to stretch his stomach skin up to 15.8 centimeters or 6.25 inches. He is a citizen of Great Britain and he is suffering from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It is a type of disorder of the connective tissues affecting the skin, ligaments and internal organs. In this disorder, the collagen which strengthens the skin and also determines its elasticity becomes faulty. As a result, the skin gets loosen and the joints get hypermobile.

Though this is one of the Amazing world records but the truth is, Garry Turner is sick. But he has written his name in Guinness book of world records.
2. Most Socks Put on a Foot in one Minute
Italian fitness trainer Silvio Sabba holds the record of 45 socks put on a foot in one minute. Not only this, Sabba has many other several world records written in his name in Guinness Book of World Records. He should be called as serial world record holder because he currently holds 70 titles to his name. Most clothes pegs on your face in one minute record is held by him i.e. 51. Most AA batteries held in one hand i.e. 48, most Ferrero Rocher chocolates stacked in a tower i.e. 12, most sugar cubes balanced on chin i.e. 17, most CDs balanced on a finger i.e. 255 and many more.

3. Most Body Piercings in one Session
What is body Piercings? Let me define first
Body piercing, a form of body modification, is the practice of puncturing or cutting a part of the human body, creating an opening in which jewelry may be worn. The word piercing can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to an opening in the body created by this act or practice
Chris Elliot and Tyson Turk from the USA set the world record for most body piercings in one session i.e. 6 hours and 15 minutes. It happened in May 2010 at Tyson Turk Tattoo Studio, Bedford, Texas. They both broke the previous record of 1015 piercings in 7 hours and 55 minutes which was set by two British Kam Ma and Charlie Wilson and set a new one of the Amazing World Records.

4. Wealthiest Cat
You might have heard about the wealthiest man and woman many times on the television, newspaper and on the internet. Now it’s time for you to meet the wealthiest cat. Ben Rea died in May 1988. Before dying, he donated his $12.5 million to Blackie. Blackie was the last surviving of the 15 cats he shared his house with. He did not give even a penny to his relatives and refused to recognize his family. He gave away all his money to three cat charities so that they could look after his beloved pet cat. In this way, his cat became the Wealthiest Cat ever.

7. Longest Time Spent In Ice
You would not appreciate the idea of lying on snow in extreme cold even with thick jackets and clothes. But when a man decides to become crazy, he can lie in an ice without clothes. The same thing was done by Wim Hof. He is a citizen of Netherlands and on January 23, 2009, he decided to lie down in an ice and made a world record. He lies down in an ice without clothes and remained there for 1 hour and 42 minutes and thus made one of the Amazing World Record of longest time spent in Ice.
