For some people, Halloween is a favorite holiday. It’s fun to get dressed up and pretend to be someone or something else for a couple of hours. Kids love trick-o-treating, and others love the opportunity to throw a harvest party.
But, what is a Halloween party without Jack-o-Lanterns to add to the holiday spirit. But, if you have ever carved a pumpkin, you know what a challenge it can be. First, you have to take out the seeds and other goop in the middle. Then, it takes a bit of sawing to cut through the thick exterior.
So, you should be able to appreciate the world record holder for the fastest pumpkin carver on record. Stephen Clarke, of Orlando Florida, achieved the feat in 24.03 seconds. Can you beat that, without doing yourself bodily harm, of course?
How much of your favorite food can you consume in one day, every day? Of course, you will not make it into the world record books, if you eat until you are sick to your stomach, or if your stomach were to collapse under the weight of your edibles onslaught.
So, how does a man make it in the record books after eating at least two pounds of metal every day, for the last 50 years? If that wasn’t strange enough, glass is for dessert. No, not a glass filled with ice cream. He eats the glass itself.
Metal is definitely not on the diet of the average person, let alone a favorite food. Now, if you are talking pizza that is a different story. In fact, there are many teenagers that would eat it several times a week, if given the chance.
For families with a teenage boy in the house, at least half a large pizza is consumed in a matter of minutes. You might question whether he even had time to taste the pie. But, did you know that the world record for consuming an entire pizza is one minute and forty-five seconds? In March 2008, a New Zealander named Josh set the record. Question: How long after this feat was accomplished did he actually enjoy a pizza; or, does he have a new favorite food?
