Outstanding Achievements.

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

When I was a kid, I loved paging through the "Guinness Book of World Records" - it was hours of entertainment. So, naturally, this series - by San Francisco artist Maria Forde - brings me back. I especially love the last one, of James Whale, who apparently holds a world record for kissing: 4,525 women in eight hours. Impressive.


So much more - including author portraits and priceless pearls of wisdom - on the artist's website, here.

These are really impressive - standing for 17 YEARS! Wow! Also, I didn't think it was possible to top The Bachelor, but the last one proves me wrong! (haha!) Great finds!

the guinness book of world records is seriously the most HYPNOTIZING thing when you're a kid - photos of the world's longest fingernails, shortest man, and largest pizza are like, INGRAINED in my brain.

Shoko said...

Yes, the fingernails! I remember that so vividly - they were CURLY!

About this kissing one...wasn't there a risk of getting herpes? Since the days before an outbreak, it is still contagious...
