Fidel Castro Slept with 35,000 Women, or So He Claims

The former Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro, claims to have slept with over 35,000 women. Now I don’t want to be one to judge, but that is a huge number, and somewhat dubious. Admittedly though, it’s not as big as this sex goal, but a massive number nonetheless. So let’s dig a little deeper. Before we move forward with this claim it must be pointed out that dictators aren’t exactly renowned for their honesty, need we say more (click here). And not only are they guilty of telling the odd tall story, they’re just a weird bunch of people and do ... Read more

Which Animal Has the Biggest Balls?

Which animal has the biggest balls? This question has two possible answers. One for the largest balls of all the animals, and one for the largest relative to body size. The reason that we have to look at this particular record this way is because even though one record is absolutely massive, by proportion the other is even more astounding, a litle like this animal with the biggest penis. Which animal has the biggest balls in comparison to its body size? The animal with the biggest testicles, when compared to its entire body, is a tiny little animal, an insect in fact ... Read more

The Biggest Family in the World Has 181 Members

Personally I think families are like alcohol. You need to know when to say enough is enough. Sure, both can be great in moderation, but too much of either and things can just get out of hand very quickly, and become messy. So just spare a moment to think about the biggest family in the world, whose members total a mind staggering, or numbing 181. Now if you are thinking that’s not too big for an extended family, it’s not that extended either. It only includes children, grandchildren, daughters-in-law, wives and one very silly man who is a glutton for punishment. ... Read more

Iran Made the World’s Biggest Ostrich Sandwich, but the Proof Was Eaten Before It Could Be Measured

Guinness World Record fail coming right up. Iran made the world’s biggest ostrich sandwich, but before it could be measured, it was eaten. I mean there are some pretty funny things that can happen when setting a record, but eating the evidence has to be one of the funniest things that I have ever heard of. It really does sound like it came out of the fiction section of the library, this really happened, and was extensively reported on at the time. Of all the countries in the world there are a few that I would not really think capable ... Read more

While no one actually goes into a sport with the desire for fame and fortune, winning, and setting a new record can be the icing on the cake. But for most athletes, setting a record is something that ... Read more

Lina Medina, son Gerardo, and Dr. Gérado Lozada The youngest mother on record, Lina Medina, was only 5 years, seven months and 17 days old when she gave birth to a son weighing 6 pounds. This is by far one of the most disturbing facts that we have encountered, and I was initially skeptical. But it turns out that this was a true event. A disturbing one I’ll admit, even more disturbing than this one, but it did happen nonetheless. So how did this even happen to a child that had hardly even graduated preschool? Even the biology of it is hard to ... Read more

Veronica Seider is a Woman with 20 Times Better Vision Than an Average Person

How does your vision measure up? If you’re anything like me, it’s not very good at all. But one woman from Germany, Veronica Seider, has vision that is 20 times better than the average persons. If you’re wondering how good that is, it turns out that she can identify people from 1 mile (1.6 km) away. When it comes to vision, it’s not a fair playing field. What is considered prefect vision, 20/20, is actually a measure of how the normal average eye compares to your own eye. Some people can have better than average, but for a lot of ... Read more

3 Worst Sports Riots in History Ever

When a lot of people with the same grudge at the result get together, a riot can take place, and they can be pretty bad. When it comes to the worst sports riots in ... Read more
