For May, which marks National Photography Month, the Guinness World Records has released a collection of some of the most iconic images in its archives. Some of the photos capture rare and incredible natural phenomena, while others document people doing totally unnecessary things.
First published in 1955, the annual Guinness Book of World Records has featured some of history’s most shocking and striking images. These include a 1974 photo of Don Kohler from Denton, Montana who held the title of the world’s tallest man (8’2″) throughout the 1970s; the heaviest spider specimen measured (6.1 ounces); and the most ice cream scoops balanced on a single cone (125).
It gets more eccentric with titles like the “farthest eyeball pop,” the “stretchiest skin,” and “fastest time to ignite five targets by squirting milk from the eye.” See these and others here below.
