-----Worlds Hairiest Man-----
This walking" bear rug" is 26-year-old Yu Zhenhuan of China, and 96 percent of his body is covered with hair. Yu's pubelike pelt sprouts from everywhere but his palms and soles, to the tune of 41 hairs per square centimeter. What's worse, his mane actually made Yu sick. His locks snaked so far into his ear that they not only caused him earaches and nausea but also cut off a third of his hearing. Luckily, a recent operation cleared out the old growth, which could have spelled trouble for Yu's current career as a rock singer. You GO guy!

-----Worlds Tallest Man-----
The tallest man in medical history for whom there is irrefutable evidence is Robert Pershing Wadlow. He was born at

Alton, Illinois, USA, on February 22, 1918, and when he was last measured on June 27, 1940, was found to be 2.72 m (8 ft

11.1 in) tall.Wadlow died at 1:30 a.m. on July 15, 1940, in a hotel in Manistee, Michigan, as a result of a septic

blister on his right ankle caused by a brace, which had been poorly fitted only a week earlier. He was buried in Oakwood

Cemetery, Alton, in a coffin measuring 3.28 m (10 ft 9 in) long, 81 cm (32 in) wide and 76 cm (30 in) deep.Wadlow's

greatest recorded weight was 222.71 kg (35 st 1 lb) on his 21st birthday and he weighed 199 kg (31 st 5 lb) at the time

of his death. His shoe size was 37AA (47 cm, 18½ in long) and his hands measured 32.4 cm (12¾ in) from the wrist to the

tip of the middle finger. He wore a size 25 ring. His arm span was 2.88 m (9 ft 5¾ in) and his peak daily food

consumption was 8000 calories.

-----Worlds Longest Ear Hair-----
Radhakant Bajpai of Naya Ganj, Uttar Pradesh, India, has hair sprouting from the centre of his outer ears
(middle of the pinna) that measures an incredible 13.2 cm (5.19 in) at its longest point. The length of the 50-year-old's

pelt was confirmed by medical examiner Dr. R P Gupta. "Making it to Guinness World Records is indeed a special occasion

for me and my family," s
aid Radhakant. "God has been very kind to me."

-----Worlds Smallest Waist-----
Cathie Jung's waist is about the same size as a regular jar of mayonnaise. She's been wearing a corset every day for the

past 12 years, and she now wears one 24 hours a day. "I probably have around 100 of them," says the corset queen. Corsets

were hugely popular in Victorian times (during the 1800s), when they were often strengthened with pieces of whalebone.

Corsets pinch the waist, and if worn for a long time they can permanently alter the shape of the waistline. The

wasp-waist look went out of fashion in the 1920s, but Cathie says that plenty of folks still enjoy it today. "A lot of

people think it's wonderful," she says. "But some people think it's ridiculous, perhaps they're jealous because they're

overweight." Cathie says her tiny waist has not caused her any health problems.

-----Worlds Longest Fingernails-----
Chillal of Poona, India had his record-breaking fingernails measured on the set of Guinness World Records: Primetime. The

combined length of the five nails of his left hand were found to be a staggering 6.15 m (20 ft 2.25 in). Shridhar does

not grow the nails on his right hand.
His ambition to grow his nails started from a young age. He says, "As a boy, I had an inclination to do something unique

and outstanding. One day, I just happened to read about a Chinese saint who grew his nails and thought I could do that to

create a world record."But how easy was it to achieve such a record-breaking length? "Growing my nails has been a really

traumatic experience, as I had to take the utmost care in nurturing their growth during the last 48 years. For as many

years I have used my right hand for all my day-to-day chores and nobody can believe I have also had to forego a peaceful

night's sleep. So it's against all the odds of daily life including reading, writing, cycling, walking, and so on, that I

have successfully grown my nails. Shridhar's hand is now permanently disfigured from supporting the weight of the nails

all these years, and nerve damage has resulted in deafness in his left ear. When asked if it was worth the effort and

pain, he replied: "What does man not do for fame? He jumps from boats, dives from planes and does stunts on motorcycles.

This is also done for fame... So, yes, I will do it all over again if I were to have another life."
