Top 10 Insane World Records You’ll Never See Ever Again
There are many ways to set a record and leave your mark in the Guinness World Records book. But there are only a special few that really push the boundaries of what’s humanly possible. These are only the most genuinely breathtaking achievements-the records that may never be broken ever again.
Ready to take a look at? Let’s get it on!
1.Greatest height from which a basketball is shot:
Everyone knows that being tall is a big advantage in basketball-it’s just a high sport. But how high is too high? In 2018, Australian YouTubers How Ridiculous headed out to Maletsunyane falls in Lesotho Africa, to attempt to make a shot from the top of the falls into a hoop all the way at the bottom, 200 meters below. At first, it seemed like the breathtaking view had them a bit distracted because they spent 5 full days throwing complete air balls. However finally, on the fourth day, the elements seemed to align in their favor, and they managed to set the World Record for highest basketball shot made. Maybe the view was just so good they were missing on purpose?
2.Bosnian who broke 111 concrete blocks:
It seems there’s always a way to take something extreme to the next level. Bosnian teenager Kerim Ahmetspahic proved that in a big way: he holds a strangely impressive Guinness World Record for the most concrete blocks smashed…with his head. You would think one would be enough, but not for him, then 16 years old took this really seriously and somehow managed to destroy 111 concrete blocks in just 35 seconds with his skull inexplicably still intact. That’s 111 blocks than any of us could destroy with our head so you better bow down to this black belt.
3. Flying in a wingsuit through a gap only 8 and a half feet wide:
As if base jumping wasn’t life-threateningly dangerous enough, Uli Emanuele decided to kick it up a notch…or two. He took his wingsuit up a mountain in Switzerland which he’d chosen for a reason: it had a cave close by that he was determined to jump through. You’d expect a base jumper to choose a cave a lot wider than this one though. This is in fact the smallest hole any base jumper has even flown through and it’s an unnaturally dangerous stunt. But he was determined, and he somehow achieved his impossible goal: base jumping through a gap only 8 and a half feet wide. And if that sight doesn’t get your heart rate up, I don’t know what will.
4.Rubik’s cubes solved underwater in one breath by a man in India:
You’ve probably sat for an unreasonable amount of time trying to solve a Rubik’s cube at least once in your life, so you know it’s not easy. ILLayaram Sekar from India decided to give himself a bit of time pressure and see how many he could solve. By that I mean, he took a breath, submerged himself in water, and tried to break the Guinness World Record for most Rubik’s cubes solved underwater-all without coming up for air!
He was down there on his single breath of air for a pretty impressive 2 minutes and 17 seconds, but it’s one thing to just hold your breath, it’s another to solve such difficult puzzles at the same time. And yes I said puzzles, plural: he managed to completely solve 6, stealing the record in the process!
