The longest woman’s beard.

The “bearded lady” Janice Daveri from Kentucky, USA had the longest beard ever sine 1884 and it was 36 cm long. Unfortunately we couldn’t find her photos but we have found an interesting blog:

beardedwoman.wordpress.com Take a look you will understand what it is like being a woman with the beard.


The longest mustache

Hookah Ramdzhi Saina from India was sprouting whiskers from 1976.  In July 1993 they spread for as long ad 3.39 m. The length of the right whisker equaled 1.72 m and the left one was 1.67 m.

Photos from World Beard and Mustache Competition.

The earliest teeth

The world knows several cases when children were born with teeth. Shin Kini was born with 12 teeth in his mouth on April 10th 1990 in Berkshire, United Kingdom. They have been removed since he could bite his mother when breast feeding.

The oldest milk tooth

Gladys Turner who was born in 1920 in West Sussex, United Kingdom, preserved milk tooth, which was 75 years old in 1995. The photo below is not Gladys but it’s an amazing pic.

The smallest waist

The smallest waist belongs to Ethel Grainger from Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom. In 1939 her waist was 33 cm only. And this is the photo of Cathie Jung with the 38 cm waist.

Biggest biceps

The size of the right biceps of Denis Sester from Minnesota, United States is 77.8 cm in the relaxed state.


The longest fingernails

Measuring 5 fingernails on the left hand of Shridhar Chillal from India at the end of March 1997 showed that the total length of nails comes to 6.12 m.

That’s the photo of Shridhar Chillal and Lee Redmond (who had a car crash in February 2009 and had to cut her nails).


The highest man

The highest man that the world knows about was Robert Pershing Wadlow, born in 1918 in Illinois, USA. In June 1940, his height was 2.72 m. and the weight 222.7 kg


The tallest woman

Sen Chunlin was born in China in 1964. By the time of death on February 1982 her height reached 2.48 m. However, this figure takes into account the curvature of its spine, because she suffered severe scoliosis and could not sit completely straight.

Most unlike spouses

Fabian Preto and Natalie Lokyu got married on 14th 1990 in France. His height is 1,885 m while Natalie is only 94 cm high, which means that Fabian is twice as high as Natalie.

The smallest woman

The smallest female was Pauline Musters, known as the Princess Pauline. She was born in 1876 in Netherlands. By 9 years her height was 50 cm only and her weight was 1.5 kg. By the time of death her height was 61 cm.

The fattest man

John Brauwers Minnok from USA was born in 1963. He was about 1,85 m high and his weight in 1966 cam to 317 kg and in September of 1976 it was 442 kg. In March 1978 Minnok weighed over 635 kg.

The fattest women

There are records that show that the weight of Rosalie Bradford born in 1943 in United States, registered in January 1987, was 544 kg. Keeping to strict diet she made an unbelievable thing and in February 1994 she already weighed 128 kg. Sorry about this image guys, but there’s not much of her photos online.


The thinnest person

Lucia Zarate (1863 – 89) from Mexico in her 17 years was the exhausted lilliputian who weighted 2.13 kg being 67 cm high.

The largest number of children

The largest number of children born by a single mother ever is 69. The record belongs to the wife of the Russian peasant Feodor Vasilyev who gave birth 27 times between 1725 and 1765 (16 twines, 7 trines and 4 times 4 children). Only 2 children died in infancy. The photos below are not of their family since they lived long time ago.



Charles Osborne from Iowa, United States, began hiccuping in 1922 and stopped in 1990 only. He led a usual life, was married twice and had 8 children.


Doina Griffiths from United Kingdom began to sneeze January 13, 1981. Having sneezed about a million of times within the first 365 days, she kept sneezing for the next 614 days.

“The smallest female was Pauline Masters, known as the Princess Pauline. She was born in 1876 in Netherlands. By 9 years her height was 5 cm only…”

There’s a digit missing there I think. 5 cm is about 2 inches!


Anastasia June 8, 2009 at 5:34 am

Yep, thanks for the follow up!


dimonti June 2, 2012 at 5:00 pm

altamash June 24, 2009 at 12:23 am

i love all this facts. they are really amazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing .


Bartek July 2, 2009 at 7:48 am

While we’re at nitpicking, “… got married on 14th 1990 in France.”
The month is missing.

And another: “John Brauwers Minnok from USA was born in 1963. He was about 1.85 m high and his weight in 1966 came to 317 kg (~700 lbs.) …”

He was only three years old as he neared 700 pounds?

Or was he born in 1936, and turned 30 in 1966 and 40 in 1976?

Dont read records, make the records. Because readers are stupid and makers are smart.


Joni marie September 6, 2010 at 1:19 pm

the world is just full of amazing facts..these are priceless information worth knowing


Joni marie September 6, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Records make us remember persons who had made history. And it will inspire us to make our mark also that will last.


Joni marie September 6, 2010 at 1:23 pm

watching this makes me think that we should live our lives making a legacy…we should make our existence known in the simplest way that we can.


Joni marie September 6, 2010 at 1:24 pm

the good thing about this is that they are real..and to be able to surpass them is to be real enough to reach that goal in life.


Joni marie September 6, 2010 at 1:27 pm

knowing updates would be fun..the record holders are way before our time..i was wondering if some of who view have today even come close.
