7 weirdest Guinness World Records 2021-2022

The weirdest Guinness World Records 2021-2022 are really weird.

Every year, there are some crazy world records. The Guinness World Records 2021-22 too has some of the weirdest, bizarre records made by people who, well, want to be known for those records.

We have handpicked some of the craziest, wackiest, and strange ones for you. 

1. Wearing 10 masks under 10 seconds: Covid-19 has taught us many things, and wearing a mask (correctly) is one of them. But who would have thought that wearing masks could also be used to set a world record. A UK man named George Peel did it. Peel's name is inscribed in the book for wearing 10 surgical masks in just 7.35 seconds.  

2. Chug Chug Chug… Eric from New York chugged 2 litres of soda in 18.45 seconds. The video shared by Guinness World Records shows him pouring the drink into a measuring cup, and then gulping it down in one go.

3. The loudest burp ever: Some records make our eyes roll; this one made us go bleh. The world record for the loudest burp currently belongs to Neville Sharp of Australia. The man's burp is measured at 112.4 decibels. If you think this is absurd, consider this: he actually broke the previous record, of 109.9 decibels.

4. Woman managed to stop an electric fan with her tongue: Zoe Ellis's record was the nightmare of our parents coming true. She managed to stop electric fans (yes, in the plural) with her tongue 32 times in one go... and did not get hurt. (Tongue of steel?)


5. Big ball of human hair: Rieply, a franchise in the United States, has managed to make 1,600 people donate strands or a whole head of hair to create a giant ball of human hair... which they have named 'Hoss'.

6. Most skips by a robot: This robot from Japan developed by Penta-X can skip more times than normal humans. He recorded skipping 170 times in one minute. 

7. Eating Bhut Jolokia: Bhut Jolokia, one of the spiciest chilies that is mostly responsible for YouTube headlines like 'hot sauce challenge gone wrong' was actually eaten by Greg Foster in 7.47 seconds. He set the record on November 16, 2021, by eating three Bhut Jolokia chilies in 7.47 seconds. (brb, eating some ice)
