  • It's a New Record for Cockroach Eating!

    It's a new record for cockroach eating!
    By Lara Smith


    LONDON (Reuters) - Some people will do anything to get into the record books -- eat cockroaches, catapult coins or just sit around and navel-gaze.


    Australian Graham Barker has extracted his own belly button fluff every day since 1984, collecting a world record 0.54 ounces.


    His collection, perfectly preserved and cataloged, is just one of the weird and wonderful feats recorded in the 2002 edition of Guinness World Records, published on Friday.


    "Some people gaze into their navel for inspiration. I look into mine and see navel fluff," said Barker, whose ambition is to collect enough navel pickings to stuff a pillow.

    I can't even look at the link. I'm afraid there will be a pic of a roach there and I'll get grossed out. I don't like insects (spiders I can handle), but cockroaches are one of my biggest fears. I get totally skeeved out from them. They make my skin crawl. Talk about giving someone the heebie jeebies.

      Well, Katie, since you are too scared to go to the link, I will have to bring to link to you:

      Briton Ken Edwards, a former rat-catcher and part-time entertainer, made it into the record book after eating 36 medium-sized cockroaches in one minute on March 5, 2001.


      As part of his stage act he also stuffs 47 rats down a pair of pantyhose -- while wearing them.


      Then there is Monte Pierce, who can catapult a coin just under 12 feet with his ear -- the world record for the furthest coin propulsion by an earlobe.


      Pierce, who started yanking his ears as a child, can also cover his eyes with his lobes and pull them down under his chin.


      Other bizarre record-breaking feats include the loudest burp, by Briton Paul Hunn, which registered 118.1 decibels -- comparable to a plane taking off, according to the record book.


      Sooty was crowned the most romantic guinea pig after fathering 43 babies during a single night of passion with 24 partners in December 2000.


      British actor Vic Gallucci holds the record for most appearances as a television extra. Since 1989 he has appeared 819 times as Detective Constable Tom Baker in police TV drama The Bill.


      He has yet to speak a line.


      Now in its 48th edition, Guinness World Records 2002 includes chapters on extreme sports, computer games, medical marvels and robots, as well as the classic fastest, slowest, tallest and smallest categories.

          I ate a vanilla slice and found a cockroach wing on part of it. Ate around the wing. I love vanilla slices.

            My son and I ate at a restuatrant. He jumped up and ran to the bathroom. When He can back he showed me the cockroach cooked in his eggs. I took the plate in the kitchen and gave it to the cook and told him to eat it.
