guinness world records

SUPER LONG TAIL You better watch out when Keon the Irish wolfhound starts wagging his tail—because it’s nearly three feet long. The pooch holds the record for the longest tail on a dog, measuring 30.2 inches long. That’s almost the size of an average two-year-old kid! SO. MANY. ICE POPS! This guy’s definitely going to get brain freeze. Kevin Strahle holds the record for the most ice pops eaten in one minute, having scarfed down six of the sweet treats. Strahle’s also the titleholder for nine other extreme-eating challenges, including fastest time to drink a bottle of maple syrup and most powdered doughnuts eaten in three minutes. We’re guessing he’s not a picky eater. MAN JUMPS FROM DRONE Parachute jumping from a plane is so yesterday. Ingus Augstkalns made history when he became the first…

Salt Hotel TAYKA HOTEL DE SAL WHERE Tahua, Bolivia HOW MUCH About $130 a night WHY IT’S COOL You’ve stayed at hotels made of brick or wood. But salt? Tayka Hotel de Sal is made mostly of salt (sal means salt in Spanish), including some beds—though you’ll sleep with regular mattresses and blankets. The hotel sits on the border of Salar de Uyuni, a prehistoric dried-up lake that’s the world’s biggest salt flat. Builders use the salt from the over 4,000-square-mile flat to make the bricks and glue them together with a paste of wet salt that hardens when it dries. When rain starts to dissolve the hotel, it’s no problem: The owners just mix up more salt paste to strengthen the bricks. COOL THINGS ABOUT BOLIVIA During rainy summer months, Bolivia’s Salar de…

1 FOR THE BIRDS WHAT Boulders Beach WHERE Simon’s Town, South Africa WHY IT’S BIZARRE You might expect to see penguins on an icy coast. But these birds like it hot! African penguins splash in the warm waters of this national park next to 540-million-year-old granite boulders. 2 HIDE-AND-BEACH WHAT Hidden Beach WHERE Marieta Islands, Mexico WHY IT’S BIZARRE Tucked inside a crater, this spot might have been formed in the early 1900s when the Mexican government was testing military weapons on these then-ninhabited islands. It’s so secluded you can only reach the beach by first swimming through a 40-foot-long rock tunnel. 3 BLACK OUT WHAT Punaluu Black Sand Beach WHERE Big Island, Hawaii WHY IT’S BIZARRE The jet-black sand on this skinny stretch of beach is made up of tiny bits of hardened lava,…
