#1 MOST STRAWS STUFFED INTO A MOUTH

Believe it or not, someone looked a pile of more than 400 straws and thought, "I can probably jam those all into my mouth."

#2 LONGEST NOSE

Seems strange that bad genetics can help you set a record, but such was the case with Mehmet Ozyurek and his 8.8 centimeter nose.

#3 MOST CONCRETE BLOCKS BROKEN WHILE HOLDING AN EGG

Okay, we get the breaking concrete blocks part, that's impressive - but why on earth would anyone bother to hold a raw egg while doing it?

#5 LARGEST COLLECTION OF NIKE SHOES

Some dude named Jordan Geller has, for whatever reason, decided it would be an awesome idea to college more than 2,500 pairs of Nike shoes to set this record.

#6 TALLEST MOHAWK

Kazuhiro Watanabe has the world's tallest mohawk and we have to ask: how on earth does he get hair product all the way to the top?

#7 MOST VIOLINS PLAYED AT ONCE

This is a record held by a Ukrainian named Oleksandr Bozhyk, and we just have to point out no one said most violins played well.

#8 WORLD’S FASTEST TOILET

Of all the records in the world, this is maybe the most pointless since, last we checked, most of us don't care whether our toilets can zip along at high speed.

#9 FASTEST DOGS ON TRICYCLES

If you're wondering who on earth would even attempt something this bizarre, the answer is, of course, the Japanese.

#10 LARGEST GATHERING OF PEOPLE DRESSED AS SMURFS

On the plus side, it's easy to get in on a record like this, but on the negative side, you'd never want to admit to taking part in a record like this.

#11 BIGGEST RUBBER BAND BALL

It took Joel Waul six years to put together his massive rubber band ball, which weighs nearly five tons, and we're sure his parents are very proud of him - probably for something else.

#12 LARGEST COLLECTION OF BARBIES

A German woman named Bettina Dorfmann owns more than 15,000 Barbie dolls, and we're going to go ahead and guess not a lot of friends to show them off to.

#13 MOST BEES ON A PERSON

Chinese beekeeper She Ping holds the world record by having 331,000 bees on him at once, a record we assume will stand because no one else is insane enough to try to top that.
