The strangest Guinness records in 2021... the longest eyelashes, the largest mouth and the heaviest mango



Dozens of records recently joined the Guinness World Records during 2021, and as usual, some of them were strange and unusual and the other impressive innovative.


The world encyclopedia began as an idea in the early fifties of the last century, when Sir Hugh Beaver (1890-1967), executive director of the Guinness Brewery, attended a shooting and hunting party in the county of Wexford.


During the ceremony, an argument took place between Sir Hugh and his hosts about the fastest bird in Europe, and they were unable to obtain a definitive answer from any reference book to confirm the answer.


And in 1954, when Sir Hugh recalled the controversy that had taken place, he came up with the idea of ​​making an advertisement for Guinness based on solving polemics in pubs.


Sir Hugh invited the twins, Norris MacWhiter (1925-2004) and Ross MacWhiter (1925-1975), researchers and those interested in gathering facts, and asked them to compile a book that included all kinds of information and figures.



Guinness Superlatives was founded on November 30, 1954, and after initial research work began on editing the book, which took about 13 and a half weeks (90 hours of work per week), including weekends and national holidays.


Over the past 60 years, Guinness World Records has held an important place among those interested in information and numbers, and the book has continued to be a bestseller around the world.
