13983Top Five records from the PhilippinesYesterday on our Facebook page, you voted to see a blog full of Filipino Guinness World Records - so here are five of the latest and greatest! First up, a record I'm sure some of you reading this would have enjoyed being a part of - the Largest shot slam! 2,435 people took part in the event, each downing a shot of gin at the Naga City Coliseum in December 2010.Next up, one of the Philippines' geographical features, which is as interesting and unusual, as it is difficult to say correctly - the Largest island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island. Vulcan Point is a tiny island some 40m long, inside Crater Lake at the summit of the Taal volcano, itself within lake Taal, on the island of Luzon.From a natural feature to a man-made spectacle, that of the Most mentos and soda fountains. The minty sweets have a violent and foamy reaction when they come into contact with diet sodas, leading to these fountains. At this event at the SM Mall of Asia Complex in Manila, 2,865 such fountains were created simultaneously. A different kind of mass explosion now, with the Most fireworks rockets launched in 30 seconds. 125,801 rockets were launched in Cebu in May 2010, from 16 stacks of 8,000 rockets each - creating quite the display! Last, but by no means least, comes one of the very latest Filipino record breakers - Junrey Balawing was measured and confirmed to be the new Shortest living man when he turned 18 on 12 June this year. Junrey was found to be just 59.93cm (23.5 inches) tall when measured six times over a day at the Sindangan Health Centre near his home.

13988Meet Ernestine, the world's oldest pigWhen Jude and Dan King purchased Ernestine the pig at 3 months old, little did they know how historic their purchase would one day become.Now, more than 23 years later, Ernestine has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest pig ever.Born July 17, 1991 to breeder Judy Caron, Ernestine found a home with the Kings and their daughters Morgan and Rhiannon in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.“She lives in our house and loves to sleep most of the day, especially in the cold months here,” Jude said. “But loves to get outside in the summer to bask in the sun.”Since joining the family, Ernestine has been part of every birthday, anniversary, and other celebration.Her life almost took an extremely different turn, as Ernestine had been sold to a different family at 6 weeks old.But the family returned her after she made too much loud noise whenever the owners would pick her up – a common trait among many pigs, who are scared of heights. The Kings had been waiting for a pig from Judy’s breed and happened to be looking when Ernestine was returned.She breaks the previous record that had been officially verified at 21 years 166 days old by “Pig,” a pig owned by Kris and Tricia Fernandez in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.After surgeries to remove two back molars and detach inner eyelashes that has grown stuck to her corneas within the first year, Ernestine has lived a healthy and happy life since.When Judy sold Ernestine to the Kings two decades ago, she told them to expect her to live about 12 years. She’s now nearly doubled that prediction en route to history."Well she knows she's a big deal," Jude recently told CBC News. "She gets a few extra grapes and raspberries, you know, just cause she's old."The 60th Anniversary Diamond Edition of the Guinness World Records book is out now!

13991'Human F1 car' Mischo Erban smashes fastest skateboard speed world record - videoDaredevil Canadian Mischo Erban has notched up the fastest speed ever achieved on a skateboard in a standing position after hitting an incredible 129.94 km/h (80.74 mph). The 28-year-old's successful attempt took place last week on the road descending to the St. Lawrence River port of Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive in Quebec, the departure point for ferries to L'Isle-aux-Coudres. The road is noted for being dangerously steep, in points descending at an 18% grade. Speaking after speeding his way into the record books, Erban said: "When I sped off I got into an aerodynamic shape and just focussed on the yellow line in the middle of the road. "As I got faster the road started to disappear. There were a few bumps on the road but I just focussed on keeping myself tight. "It was great fun and I got a real rush from knowing I was travelling at 80mph on a skateboard and watching the side of the road flash past me in my peripheral vision."I came to the hill thinking I would be scared but at the end it was just a game. I didn't really even feel challenged." He added: "I hope to be afraid one day. I want to be able to do 160mph but there isn't a road which exists to do it on but I think it would be possible because it is possible for downhill skiers. "I just need someone to build the road first." Guinness World Records adjudicator Michael Emprick described the new record as "an amazing demonstration of what the human body is capable of with dedication and hard work. "What I'll remember most about Mischo's attempt isn't just the incredible speed he was able to achieve, it was the sound of his skateboard wheels as it zoomed past." video
13992Top Ten Prometheus-related world recordsTo mark the release of Prometheus around the world this weekend, here's our pick of records related to long-awaited sci-fi thriller.1. First documented use of pharyngeal jaws to catch preyYep. They're real. The terrifying xenomorph creatures in Prometheus are heavily armed with a second set of jaws, known as pharyngeal jaws.Pharyngeal jaws exist within the throats of around 30,000 species of fish on Earth, but it wasn't until September 2007 that US scientists first documented that the moray eel project theirs forward into their mouths in order to capture prey.2. Oldest tree ever documentedA bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) known as Prometheus was cut down from Mt Wheeler in Nevada, USA in 1963.It was approximately 5,200 years old, the oldest age for a tree that has ever been recorded. 3. Most expensive advertisement (commercial) to air on televisionThe most expensive TV advert was produced by Prometheus director Ridley Scott (USA). Based on the novel 1984 by George Orwell, the ad for the computer manufacturer Apple Macintosh cost $600,000 (£360,000) to produce and $1,000,000 (£600,000) to show during Superbowl XVIII on 22 January 1984. 4. Largest internal organIn ancient Greek mythology, the titan Prometheus was punished by Zeus by being chained to a rock and having his liver infinitely devoured by an eagle.The largest organ in the human body, the adult liver can weigh between 1.2 - 1.5 kg (2.64 - 3.3 lb) - about one thirty-sixth of the total body weight.5. Fastest marathon in film character costume (male)2000's Gladiator, which starred Crowe in the lead role, currently stands as Ridley Scott's most successful movie.The film also served as inspiration for Ian Sharman (UK), who managed to run the the Maratona di Roma, in Rome, Italy in a time of 2 hr 53 min 54 sec while dressed as the movie's protagonist Maximus.6. Hardiest animals in outer spaceWith their acidic blood and predatory instincts, the fearsome Xenomorph's from the Alien films would nevertheless find their match in tardigrades.Also known as water bears, the microscopic eight-limbed creatures are said to be the greatest survivors in outer space.In 2007, scientists sent two species of tardigrade into orbit, where they were exposed not only to the vacuum of space in which no human can breathe unaided but also to sufficient radiation to incinerate a human.When they were brought back to earth, a third of the total number of tardigrades that had been sent up were still alive, thus becoming the only animals native to planet Earth that are known to have survived extraterrestrial conditions unassisted. 7. Loudest screamLoudest scream Prometheus precursor Alien had one of the more memorable movie taglines - "In space, no one can hear you scream."While that may be the case, but there's a fair chance that Jill Drake (UK) might put such a statement to the test.The classroom assistant managed a scream that reached 129 dBA when measured at Halloween festivities held in the Millennium Dome in London in October 2000. 8. First shot using special effectsPrometheus contains an impressive 1,300 digital video FX shots.Blazing a trail for the effects-laden films we've become accustomed to was the silent, minute-long Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots, shot at the Edison Laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey, USA in 1895.The film has the distinction of being the first to use stop-action, giving the impression of a beheading. So compelling was the scene that some viewers at the time believed an actress had given her life to film it. 9.Highest-rated TV show (all-time)Among the film's cast is Idris Elba, the British actor who came to prominence in US crime Drama The Wire (HBO, USA 2002-2009).The fourth season of the Baltimore-set series achieved a record high rating of 98/100 on the aggregator website, making it the highest-rated series on TV. 10. Most special effect make-up characters portrayed in a careerThe film's creature & special make-up effects supervisor Neal Scanlan has had a wide and varied career that has seen him work on films as diverse as Babe and The Golden Compass.Chances are he's probably worked on or two movies with Bill Blair.The American actor holds the record for the most special effect make-up characters portrayed in a career, notching up an impressive 202 different special-effect-reliant roles, with parts in Star Trek, Babylon, Sliders and Alien Nation.

14006Oldest flowering plantUnknownChina03 January 2002On 3 May 2002, scientists announced the discovery of the fossilised remains of the earliest flowering plant discovered to date. At least 125 million years old, and named Archaefructus sinensis (ancient fruit from China), it was found in a slab of stone in northeast China and is possibly the ancestor of all the flowering plants in the world today. Its closest living relative may be the water lilly, as the ancient plant lived in clear shallow water, with its flowers and seeds extending above the surface.The discovery was announced in the journal Science in a paper by David Dilcher (University of Florida), Ge Sun (Jilin University in Changchun, China) and other colleagues. This plant is regarded as the same age as Archaefructis lianoningensis, which had previously been dated as 144 million years. However, subsequent dating of the sediments in which it was found forced the age to be dropped to around 125 million years. Therefore the two plants are the same (geological) age. liaoningensis
14007Oldest living individual treeBristlecone pineUSA, California's White Mountains01 January 1957The oldest trees in the world are the bristlecone pines (Pinus longaeva) of California's White Mountains, USA. The oldest individual tree, christened "Methuselah" was found by Dr Edmund Schulman (USA) and dated in 1957 as being 4,600 years old, although some scientists claim to have found one even older. The location is kept secret to protect the trees from vandalism. The annual growth rings of old trees provide a valuable insight into our changing climate: the bristlecone climate record from dead wood extends back more than 9,000 years.The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is located at around (10,000 ft) 3,048m in the White Mountains, east of the Sierra Nevada. Over time the wind and rain has moulded the trees into strange shapes and forms made even more unusual by the sunshine, altitude and clean crisp air. Dr. Edmund Schulman was a scientist from the University of Arizona when he came across the Methuselah and an area in the forest is named the Schulman Grove in his honour.This is 'individual' as it is not a clone. It is rare for any individual tree to exceed 3-4,000 years old.Other old individual trees are: specimens of Sequoias, western juniper, Patagonian cypress and possibly Alaskan cedar have all aged over 4,000 years have been known.As for creosote plants - individuals rarely age over 200 years, so any record for them would be for a clone, not an individual e.g reports of a creosote bush found in 1980 in the desert near Palm Springs, California - which was aged at 11,700 years old, is a clone, not an individual tree.Ron Hildebrant warned us about a future challenger to Methuselah - see attachment.
