A 26-year-old Malaysian women is setting out to break the world record for living with scorpions by staying in a glass box with them in a mall somewhere...food court, anyone?   ':shock:'

Anyone know of any other bizarre animal records?

I'm going to climb into a box of discomfort so that I can get my name written in a book somewhere, and the only impact my efforts will have on people is "huh, look a that *walks away*".

[/sarcasm]

sorry, I just find stunts like this stupid.  Not to mention that this particular stunt has been done to death.

I remember there is one for a guy who got into a bath tub with a number of rattlesnakes.
About 80% of the records out there are rather pointless ':p'

Fox once had a show specifically designed for people that wanted to get into the Guiness Book of World Records.  They had some really impressive ones every now and then like the guy that built the largest house of cards (five stories tall) and the guy that balanced twenty-one beer kegs at once on his head, but for the most part, they were pretty pointless.  They also had, among others:

The human bee-hive: largest number of bees covered on a human being.

Largest number of bees contained in someone's mouth.

Most bubbles blown with a spider in his mouth.

Furthest distance for spitting a cricket (oddly enough, there were two people competing for this one).

And those are most sane of examples. ':p'

To the best of my knowledge, the show only featured one animal record breaker that seemed like a worthy accomplishment, that being Alex, the bird with the highest level of intelligence.  A different bird had the highest vocabulary, but they gave him the title of the most intelligent bird due to his ability to use the vocabulary he knew accurately as opposed to just mimicking.

*Nods*  And later, someone went on the show to try and break that record. ':p'

The one I always remember the most vividly was the "Concrete Man" record.  I guess those "man of whatever" records require the, um, competitors, to repeat the same stunts the previous holder did, as well as add one more to certify the title.  The guy finished off the smashing of the bricks pretty easily (he was a cop, BTW), then for his added stunt, put a cement block over his crotch while someone smashed it with a sledgehammer.  They showed it in slow-mo afterwards; I've never seen a man's eyes grow that big in my life.
