Guinness World Records

  1. First-Ever Female Game Programmer and More in the New Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition

    Unsurprisingly to us, girls were into gaming before pretty much anyone thought it was cool.

    Gamers are a passionate crowd, which makes for a lot of crazy world records to be held. So, the people at Guinness World Records have been putting out a Gamer's Edition, and this year's version just released today.

  2. The World’s Largest Video Game Collection Is up for Auction, Can Someone Spot Us Some Cash?

    It's for very important life necessities. We promise.

    You dreamed of amassing the world's largest collection of video games as a child. Then, tracking down all of those games turned out to be too much work (and money), so you gave up. Now that you're an adult and fabulously wealthy, you can pay someone who's done all the hard work—unless becoming fabulously wealthy turned out to be too much work, too.

  3. Guinness World Record Holder for Largest Walking Robot is a 50 Foot Fire-Breathing Dragon

    SCREW THIS I'M GOING BACK TO BAG END

    Every August for the past 500 years, German festival goers come to the Bavarian forest to see a performance of the traditional folk play Drachenstich, or "Slaying of the Dragon." Naturally you'd expect there to be a dragon in this performance -- except currently, the part is being played by an enormous animatronic robot that spits real fire.

  5. Romania Now Has the World’s Largest Flag in Case You Were Curious About That Record

    The United States either has to step up its game or just let Romania have this flag-based record.

    On Monday, a village in Romania unfurled what Guinness World Records has confirmed to be the largest flag ever made in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is a Romanian flag. In a related story, who knew the Romanian flag looked like that before now? We sure didn't. Then again, there's a lot of things we don't know about other country's flags.

  6. Morphinominal! The Green Ranger to Shatter World Record for Breaking Pine Boards While Skydiving

    Since retiring from his role as the green-hued leader of the Power Rangers, actor Jason David Frank -- better known as Tommy Oliver on the TV series -- has been a busy, busy man indeed. Aside from instructing others in the ways of karate, busting skulls in the mixed martial arts arena, and pretty much living up to his erstwhile on-camera persona of "karate-chopping bad bay," Frank enjoys attempting to shatter world records just as much as his opponents' ribs in the ring. Later this month, Frank is looking to break the world record for the number of pine boards broken while skydiving. Which is seriously an actual record that exists.

    We got word today that Reddit now holds the world record for the largest online secret santa game.

This is Reddit's first and only entry into the record books and we have to ask: Why stop there? There are dozens of records that the community we all know and love could easily set! We have a few in mind.

    Here at Geekosystem, we love big candy, but there aren't many sugary treats that top this world record breaking sucker cooked up by See's Candies. This is not a lollipop to be trifled with. I would love to see its calorie count! Read on for more about this marvel of human candy-neering.

  9. Bad Weather Deters Men From Flying On Lawn Chairs Tied To Helium Balloons

    On Saturday, Kent Couch and Fareed Lafta sat on lawn chairs tied to 350 helium balloons and lifted off from a parking lot in Oregon. With clear skies and light winds marking the start of their journey, drifting the 500 miles to a Guinness World Record for the longest two-man cluster balloon flight seemed a matter of time. But, the weather trolled and they had to land a mere 30 miles from where they started.
