2722Happy Halloween for Canadian kids as they set new world record for longest line of carved pumpkinsAn impressive display of pumpkin carving on Monday saw children from Calgary in Canada make their way into the record books in time for Halloween.Organised by supermarket chain Save-On-Foods, the attempt saw 1,301 jack-o-lanterns created and lined up in row to set a new record for longest line of carved pumpkins.The pumpkins were carved by schoolchildren from elementary schools, hockey teams and Girl Guides throughout the Calgary region, before being stored in refrigerated trailers.The jack-o-lanterns were then assembled over the course of several hours into a single line at the Calgary Corn Maze farm by Save-On-Food employees on Monday.As this was a new Guinness World Records category, a target of 1,000 pumpkins was needed for a record to be set, with each pumpkin requiring a pair of carved eyes, eyebrows, a nose and mouth. They then needed to be in arranged in a single line touching each other.“They really far exceeded the minimum and blew it out of the water,” said Guinness World Record adjudicator Michael Empric.“Guinness World Records is all about what’s current, what’s relevant, and with Halloween right around the corner, it was really exciting to come out and celebrate the holiday.”The display, which measures almost 300 metres in length, was the brainchild of Save-On-Foods staff who were looking for a unique way to drum up some community involvement with the launch of their chain in the Calgary area.“It’s hard to describe until you actually see it, but it’s very impressive,” said Tony Piwek, general manager of Save-On-Foods Alberta following completion of the line.“It was a huge thing when you looked at logistically laying it all out.”

2724IBM Goes Atomic for Stop-Motion FilmAs any grade-school science student learned, atoms are often known as the smallest building blocks of matter. And as any popcorn-purchasing moviegoer knows, cinema dominates the biggest screens.But IBM Research Laboratories has now married the two, using real-life atoms to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS feat for creating the smallest stop-motion film.The IBM scientists used thousands of atoms to create 242 frames of stop-motion action, resulting in the final product, titled “A Boy and His Atom.” The record-breaking film was verified to have a frame size of 45 nanometres by 25 nanometres (45 x 25 billionths of a meter) and was developed in San Jose, California, USA, between 29 January and 6 February. The film (a frame of which is pictured above) lasts 60 seconds and shows the story of a boy named Atom, who befriends an atom and goes on to dance, play catch, and even bounce on a trampoline. Check out the movie in full:videoIBM used its own Scanning Tunneling Microscope technology to move the atoms, operating the microscope at a temperature of negative 268 degrees Celsius with the ability to magnify the atomic surface more than 100 million times.“Moving atoms is one thing you can do that with the wave of your hand. Capturing, positioning and shaping atoms to create an original motion picture on the atomic-level is a precise science and entirely novel,” said Andreas Heinrich, Principle Investigator, IBM Research. “At IBM, researchers don’t just read about science, we do it. This movie is a fun way to share the atomic-scale world and show everyday people the challenges and fun science can create.”
2725From the Archives - Deadly Piranha!From the Archives is a new feature here on, in which we'll be showing off some of the many weird and wonderful record-breaking items we have here at Guinness World Records HQ - take a look!This week's item brought out from the Guinness World Records archive is a preserved Amazonian piranha!Piranhas, especially those of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus, are the most ferocious freshwater fish, and are found in the large rivers of South America.Check this little guy (measuring around 15cm (6 inches) in length) out: Did you know? - On 19 Sep 1981 more than 300 people were reportedly killed and eaten by ravenous piranhas when an overloaded passenger boat capsized and sank as it was docking at the Brazilian port of Obidos. However, it is said that piranhas will not attack a human (or other animal) that is not already in trouble - they are attracted to the frantic splashing and blood of animals in distress.So, dare you take an even closer look at those razor-sharp teeth?AHHH! That was a little too close for comfort!As you may have guessed from seeing those fearsome fangs in such detail, a school of piranhas can completely strip an animal as large as a horse of its flesh within minutes, leaving behind just a skeleton - as we can see in this video from BBC Worldwide, in which some piranhas do just that to a duck in mere minutes:videoPiranha attacks are swift and comprehensive as they start eating their victim alive – piranhas will even injure one another in the frenzy of an attack.Which is all the more reason to be careful if you ever find yourself in the Amazon river - especially if you have an injury of any kind!Until next time, safe swimming...
2726Fulda Kristall Control HP tires notch up icy motoring world recordsGerman tyre manufacturer Fulda Reifen got a grip of two Guinness World Records titles earlier this month when it set new benchmarks for "Shortest braking distance of a vehicle on ice" and "Fastest vehicle slalom on ice".Aiming to highlight their Kristall Control HP tyres ability to deal with ice and snow, the record attempts were conducted at temperatures of 25 degrees below zero near Whitehorse in Yukon, Canada.For the "Shortest braking distance of a vehicle on ice" attempt, driver Ferdinand Stuck had to brake a Subaru Impreza from 48 km/h to zero on the frozen Schwatka Lake.Despite a seemingly hard-to-beat reigning record of 56.6 meters to better, Ferdinand managed to bring the Fulda tire- equipped car to a halt at 48.132 meters.This sliced off an impressive eight meters from the original benchmark - around the length of two cars.To put the achievement further into context, when the Impreza came to a standstill, the previous record holder was still driving at 18 km/h.Not content with one record, the team then made a second successful world record attempt, this time taking the title for the"Fastest vehicle slalom on ice".For the 750-meter route, which contained a total of 50 cones, 15 meters apart and a run-up of 15 meters, Ferdinand took just 1.33:88 minutes.Speaking after the successful attempts, Susanne Knickel, Head of Marketing at Fulda Germany said: "With the two world records and the other two peak performances in the arctic winter, Fulda Kristall Control HP has once again shown that it is fully reliable even under the most extreme conditions".

2728Largest can pyramid built in Kansas CityBy Morgan Wilber in MissouriAn engineering firm in Missouri (USA) has stacked its way into the record books by building the world's largest can pyramid.Local company BRR Architecture Inc were contacted by the Worlds of Fun amusement centre in Kansas City to carry out what was to prove a successful record attempt at the park last month.Guinness World Records guidelines for the record required the team to build the construction from a minimum of 15,000 cans.Grocery store Country Mart stepped up to the plate and offered to donate the identical food cans needed.
