There’s a Guinness World Record for EVERYTHING.  Almost.  My submission for “Most Red Lights Hit, While Driving on Rt. 59” is still pending. Back to you later on that.

In the meantime, Guinness keeps a database of more than 40,000 records, and someone at UPI put together a list of the 10 ODDEST Guinness World Records of 2023.  They are:

1.  Most skips by a cat in one minute.  The record is NINE.  (Here’s video, and there’s more information, here.)


2.  Loudest burp (female).  The record is 107.3 decibels.  (Here’s video, and there’s more information, here.)


3.  Longest distance, full-body burn run, without oxygen.  That’s basically RUNNING ON FIRE.  The record is 272.25 meters, or just over 893 feet.  (Here’s video, and there’s more information, here.)
