339First timekeeping deviceTime stick01 January 3500First used in Mesopotamia in c. 3500 BC, the time stick – a primitive form of sundial – was the first “clock” ever developed by Man. Consisting simply of a long stick planted in the earth, it told the time by casting a shadow on the ground that changed length and position as the Sun “moved” overhead. Later, more sophisticated versions were created with multiple sides, with each one featuring a timescale for a different month or season.Around 2500–2000 BC, the Egyptians replaced these sticks with the obelisk, a large stone spire hewn from a single piece of rock that worked in a similar way to the time stick but on a grander scale. More conventional sundials were first developed in c.300 BC. A vertical pointer – called a gnomon (Greek for “one who knows”) – cast a shadow on to a dial marked with the hours of the day. Special devices called “merkhets” could be placed over the sundial at night to measure the time by the stars.

345Largest GPS drawing by cycle (team)The record is for the largest two-dimensional artwork formed using the memory on a Global Positioning System device whilst riding a cycle.This record is to be attempted by a team of unlimited size. This record is measured by the distance recorded by the GPS. For the purposes of this record, a GPS drawing combines art, travelling and technology, and is a method of drawing that uses GPS to create large-scale artwork. The Global Positioning System receivers determine one's position on the surface of the Earth by trilateration of microwave signals from satellites orbiting at an altitude of 20,200 km. Tracks of a journey can automatically be recorded into the GPS receiver's memory and can subsequently be downloaded onto a computer as a basis for drawing, sculpture or animation.

351Most crooked roadLombard Street, San FranciscoUnited States, San Francisco01 January 1922Comprising a total of eight tight hairpin turns as it meanders down a hill in San Francisco, Lombard Street is the world's most crooked road. While many roads twist and turn often, only a 400-m (1/4-mile) long section of Lombard Street, as it descends a 27% incline, can claim so many hairpin turns in such a short distance – a total of 1,440 degrees twisted and turned in only 400 m. Only allowing one-way traffic down the hill, Lombard Street is paved with red bricks and possesses a mandatory 5-mile-an-hour speed limit. The road is famous, having featured in films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. The road is a principal route and is co-signed as US Route 101.
352Largest real-life unicornGiant unicorn ElasmotheriumRussian Federation, N/A01 January 1500The largest mammal with a single central horn on its head that ever lived was a prehistoric rhinoceros known scientifically as Elasmotherium, but colloquially referred to as the giant unicorn. The size of a mammoth, with a total height exceeding 2.5 m, a length sometimes exceeding 5 m, and a weight estimated at 5 tonnes, based upon fossil skeletal evidence palaeontologists believe that this colossal rhinoceros bore a single massive horn at least 2 m long positioned centrally upon the paired frontal bones constituting its brow. It survived until at least as recently as 50,000 years ago, during the Late Pleistocene in the Black Sea region of southern Russia, extending as far west as Siberia, and may even have lingered into historic times there.

358Smallest unit of lengthPlanck lengthNot ApplicableThe smallest possible size for anything in the universe is the Planck Length, which is 1.6 x10-35 m across. Equivalent to around a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a cm across (a decimal point followed by thirty four zeroes and a one), this is the scale at which the quantum foam is believed to exist: the laws of quantum physics cause minute wormholes to open and close constantly, giving space a rapidly-changing, foam-like structure. If we were ever able to exploit the tremendous energy of the quantum foam, then the power contained within one cubic centimetre of empty space would be enough to boil the Earth's oceans.
