Guinness World Records Book 2009




The 54th edition of the Guinness World Records book has been released. In the 2009 version we can find a few interesting world records such as:
The World’s Oldest Bridesmaid (105 years old)
The Most Expensive Ice-cream Sundae (£12,000)
The World’s Longest Dog, with a nose to tail length of 2m 32cm (7.61 feet)
Oldest living person (114 years and 115 days – Edna Parker, US)
Largest underwater press conference (61 journalists)
Most rotations hanging from a power drill (141)
Worlds fastest talker (655 words per minute)
Fastest suitcase escape (7.04 seconds)
Oldest DNA (800,000 years)
Many of the records in the book were set on last year’s Guinness World Records Day (November 9) when 200,000 people around the world joined in to make or break records as part of the international event.
