3572Largest shrimp cocktail made in MexicoFrom Mike Janela in Mazatlán, MexicoMazatlán, Mexico, prides itself on seafood, to say the least.The "Pearl of the Pacific," as its nickname notes, sits on the country's western coast and is renowned for its fishing industry. Residents have also taken to calling their city "El Capital de Camerón" - the Shrimp Capital, an unofficial title for sure, but one they claim with pride nonetheless.Except, now, the people of Mazatlán have a legitimate title to attach to that pride: Guinness World Records holders.I headed to "La Perla" this week to adjudicate a record attempt nine months in the making and spearheaded by Tres Islas, the city's hotel association. Its goal? Nothing short of smashing the record for the largest shrimp cocktail ever made.The previous record stood for more than a year at 116 kg (255 lb 11 oz) by a student group in The Netherlands. The organizers of Tres Islas wouldn't allow that to stand and made sure of it. In fact, their aim was not just to surpass the record, but to destroy it.Mission accomplished.Once all the shrimp had been added to the cocktail glass, all the dipping sauce had been mixed in, and the glass rim lined meticulously with more shrimp each the size of a computer mouse, the industrial scales came to a rest at an incredible 538.5 kg (1,187 lb 3 oz.) of shrimp cocktail. The crowd of approximately 400 at the city's convention center then began the celebrations of their "Coctelazo" in the most appropriate way - by rushing the giant cocktail and literally seeing what a world record tastes like as the shrimp were all given away.For all records involving such magnitude, the numbers often tell the best stories and this case is no different.The glass itself took four months to manufacture, a Plexiglas acrylic cocktail glass replica that boasted a diameter of 1.36 m (4 ft 5 in) and a height of 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in). The group started with 675 kg (1,488 lb) of unpeeled shrimp before a group of about 80 chefs started a six-hour task at 5:30 a.m. of peeling, cleaning, and cooking what ended up as 488 kg (1,075 kg) of prepared shrimp. Estimates of the total number of shrimp used soared past 33,000, although not all prepared shrimp were saved for the final cocktail.As for the dipping sauce, it featured 57 kg (127 lb) of ketchup, 10 kg (22 lb) of lemon juice, 5.6 kg (12 lb) of "salsa brava," 4.025 kg (8 lb 14 oz) of Worcestershire sauce, 3 kg (6 lb 9 oz.) of salt, 1.014 kg (2 lb 3 oz) of Tabasco sauce, and a relative pinch of 30 g (1 oz.) of pepper.It was also no coincidence that the record was attempted and broken on the United Nations' World Tourism Day. On a day when people around the world celebrated what made their cities so special, Mazatlán announced its global shrimp supremacy with the authority of a city not willing to give up its title any time soon.
3573Longest carpet of flowers laid in ChinaA new Guinness World Records™ record for the longest carpet of flowers was set in in Kaifeng City, Henan Province, China on Tuesday.Measuring 2,011 m (6,597 ft 8 in), the colourful carpet beat the previous record of 1,915.6 m (6,284 ft 9 in) set in Mexico in 2010.This record-setting display of flowers was created by the People's Government of Kaifeng City (China) for the 29th Kaifeng Chrysanthemum Festival, which runs throughout the month.Consisting of 22,110 potted chrysanthemums - a flower for which the city has a long history of cultivating - the carpet measured 1.65 m (5 ft 4.96 in) in width and took 120 people eight days to compose.Guinness World Record™ Adjudicator Angela Wu measured the carpet of flowers together with a professional technician, before presenting the official certificate to the organizer.
3574USO collects most signatures on a flag to honor troops and military familiesMany Guinness World Records achievements are about an individual standing out. Others are about a group of people coming together in one location to make history. But then there are still others that find a way to unite tens of thousands of participants, from all corners of the globe, for one common purpose.That's exactly the case with the recent achievement of the USO for gathering the most signatures on a flag. Unveiled recently on-field during a Reds baseball game at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, the USO's "Every Moment Counts" flag held a total of 115,405 signatures.videoSignatures came from all 50 U.S. states and seven countries, collected both digitally for transcribing and in-person as the flag made a nationwide tour before its reveal. Signatures were collected for more than two months earlier in the year, helping surpass the previous record by an astonishing 80,000+ signatures."Every signature on the Every Moment Counts flag is a symbol of a grateful nation’s appreciation for all that our men and women in uniform and their families do for us on a daily basis," says J.D. Crouch II, USO President and CEO."Setting a new Guinness World Records title is a special moment that we could not have accomplished without the support of Americans around the globe. We thank all those who joined the USO in making this milestone possible, and to all those who help us create special moments for our troops and their families every day."Every Moment Counts is a USO national campaign "to rally Americans to honor and create moments that matter for our troops and their families. By clearly communicating the significance of these moments, and humanizing their impact on families, the USO can help shift the civilian perspective on military service and inspire Americans to help show their gratitude to our troops and their families," according to the USO.The record-breaking flag measured 80 x 120 ft (24.38 x 36.57 m), weighed 350 lb (159 kg) and featured 140 signature panels sewn together, with each panel able to hold up to 1,440 signatures. The 115,405 signatures were collected as thank you messages to military and their families.Celebrities who were drawn to the cause and added signatures of their own included music superstars Toby Keith and Jordin Sparks, NASCAR drivers Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr., and even Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster and Elmo.After the unveiling in Cincinnati, the flag continued on a three-city tour. The second stop came in Foxborough, Mass., at Gillette Stadium when the MLS' New England Revolution played the Montreal Impact. Its third tour stop takes the flag to Dover, Del., at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Dover International Speedway.Signatures were tallied and certified by independent public accounting firm Grant Thornton LLP. During the signature collection window, flag panels made stops at events like the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race, Build-A-Bear Workshop® “Celebrating Heroes” events across the U.S., and 52 USO locations around the world, including as far away as Japan. Additionally, Johnson & Johnson took to a number of their campuses to collect signatures for the flag.The final flag was assembled by Colonial Flag in Sandy, Utah. In a process that took more than 300 hours, the Colonial Flag team of five individuals used more than 5 miles (8.04 km) of thread to sew the flag together."This record proves the galvanizing effect of a great group attempting an inspirational achievement," said Guinness World Records adjudicator Alex Angert at the unveiling. "The Every Moment Counts campaign already benefited a tremendous cause in supporting our nation’s troops. But it showed that — whether you’re stationed abroad, are a celebrity at home, or a family member of one of our great military personnel — working toward a world record is something that can bring hundreds of thousands of people together for a common goal.”Are you or a group of your own attempting to raise awareness and attention for a charity or cause like the USO for its Every Moment Counts campaign?

3596Seven runners aiming to break world records at Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront MarathonThe streets of Toronto will see some epic battles waged this weekend. Superman vs. the Flash. A runner in lederhosen against chafing. And, most importantly, the battle against the clock.It's that time of the year, the return of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (STWM), and the race's fourth annual partnerhip with Guinness World Records. Much like GWR's relationship with the Virgin London Marathon, an official adjudicator will be on-site at the race to verify on the spot whether or not the seven pre-registered record applicants were successful in their attempts at glory.This year's race features seven total competitors across both the full and half marathon events, and the attempts are wide-ranging. Here's a quick look at all those participating on Sunday, many of whom are racing for a cause.Michal Kapral: fastest half marathon juggling three objectsAlready the owner of the fastest marathon ( 2 hr 50 min 12 sec) and fastest 10K ( 36 min 27 sec) "joggling" with three objects, the 42-year-old Toronto father of two is looking for a career triple crown with a half marathon record this year. Time to beat: 1 hr 15 minIn his own words: "As a kid, I used to flip through the Guinness Book of World Records trying to find records that I could break. When I was about 11, I read that there was a record for joggling, a combination of jogging and juggling. The guy in the book had run an entire marathon while joggling, which I thought was the most amazing feat. "Charity: People to PeopleStéphane Hetherington: fastest half marathon as a superheroWell isn't this fitting. Already having broken the record for the fastest full marathon dressed as a superhero (2 hr 33 min 58 sec at the SWTM in 2012), Stéphane is bringing his trademark costume of The Flash to the half marathon portion of the race, hoping for a repeat of his success from two years ago.Time to beat: 1 hr 30 minIn his own words: "I’ve run five marathons, two in costume. This will be my first half marathon. I prepare by running about 100 km (62 mi) per week, plus some other fun stuff!"Charity: Hands Across the NationsJohn Scott Clarke: fastest half marathon as a superheroAnd who more appropriate for The Flash to try and beat for a record than the Man of Steel. John will be dressed as Superman as he and Stéphane battle out for superhero half marathon supremacy. At age 6, John suffered from such debilitating pain in his legs that he couldn't walk. Now, he's racing to raise money for the hospital that treated him as a child and allowed him to run marathons today.Time to beat: 1 hr 30 minIn his own words: "My family called me their little Superman - 30 years later, I am now 36 years old and want to pay it forward for the hospital that did so much for me then, that I am now able to run a record-setting half marathon, when 30 years ago I couldn't even walk." Charity: Toronto Sick Kids HospitalLindsay Santagato: fastest marathon in firefighter's uniformIn this, her third marathon, Lindsay has upped the stakes by going for her first career record. A graduate of the Ontario Fire Academy and current volunteer firefighter, the 21-year-old will don full gear while running for the Canadian Liver Foundation.Time to beat: 6 hr 30 minIn her own words: "I chose CLF because my brother passed away from liver and kidney failure. I am running this marathon for him."Charity: Canadian Liver FoundationJeremiah Sacay: fastest marathon in a baseball uniformThis 26-year-old registered nurse from Toronto is running in his third STWM, attempting his first record, and has endured training six days a week while still working a part-time job at nearby Mt. Sinai Hospital.Time to beat: 4 hoursIn his own words: "I am attempting a [record] because I found out regular people like me can go through with setting a record in their home city or country."Charity: N/AGünther Go: fastest marathon wearing lederhosenGünther Go is the preferred pseudonym of the man hoping to bring a little national pride to the STWM. Originally from Austria, Günther will certainly be one of the more unique looking and easily spottable competitors on race day.Time to beat: 4 hoursIn his own words: I do not mind if you laugh, stare or point at me but please give generously for The Children's Aid Foundation. I want to help individuals who cannot help themselves.Charity: Children's Aid FoundationBridget Burns: fastest marathon dressed as a zookeeperThis is Bridget's sixth marathon, but would be her second record. She ran the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon earlier this year in 3 hr 52 min 27 in full boxing gear. For this record, she'll need to be dressed in khaki zookeeper shirt and trousers/shorts, a brown belt, safari hat, and carrying at least one stuffed animal for the whole race.Time to beat: 4 hr 30 minIn her own words: "I enjoy challenging myself to tests and not allowing fear or pain to conquer me. There are many runners surrounding you, but you are racing against yourself, your own fears, your own battles and self doubt."Charity: Friends of High Park ZooMake sure to follow Guinness World Records on Twitter @gwr on race day to keep up with all the results and to see if your favorite runner broke their record!And for the latest on all things world record, visit Guinness World Records on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and our brand-new Instagram.

3598Stretchiest skinGarry Turner15.8 inch(es)United States, Los Angeles29 October 1999Garry Turner (UK) is able to stretch the skin of his stomach to a distended length of 15.8 cm (6.25 in) due to a rare medical condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a disorder of the connective tissues affecting the skin, ligaments and internal organs.With this condition, the collagen that strengthens the skin and determines its elasticity becomes defective, resulting in, among other things, a loosening of the skin, and "hypermobility" of the joints. In more serious cases, it can cause the fatal collapse or rupturing of blood vessels.Garry Turner Q&A, from April 2012Q: When did you know that you had stretchy skin?A: I have always known that my skin was different - as a small child my uncles used to have fun showing their friends.Q: Are there parts of the body where the skin is very stretchy?A: Anywhere that has plenty of skin is best - tummy, neck, arms, etc. Areas not so stretchy are hands and feet.Q: Does it hurt?A: Stretching doesnt hurt at all. However, other aspects of the syndrome are very painful, e.g. joints.Q: Is there any cure for the condition?A: There is no cure as yet.
