Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. For your first attempt, you just have to travel a few hundred metres (and survive the experience). How hard can that be? But if you are looking to beat the distance of 398 metres (1307 feet) inadvertently set by Matt Suter of Missouri in 2006, by what means would you have to travel?
2. Next attempt. Just eat a few dozen objects in a minute. Easy enough if it is peas or M&Ms (although not those yucky peanut ones). But what tasty item would you have to eat at least 37 of to beat the tally set in 2001 by Englishman Ken Edwards?
3. Fancy something a little more straightforward? OK, then just get undressed in 60 seconds. How hard can that be? Not very, but to beat the achievement of Abraham Muņoz in 2018, what item of clothing would you need to remove 23 times while heading a football?
4. For this record, you just have to lift a little weight. How hard can that be? Only thing is, to beat the benchmark of 13kg (29lbs) set in 2022 by Thomas Blackthorne, what body part would you have to lift it with?
5. How hard can this be? Just remain in one place for a year and a bit. You can move around as much as you like, you can even float a bit, just don't go back home. To better the stay of 437 days endured by Valeri Polyakov of Russia, where would you have to spend your time?
6. OK this one might take a little time but all that is asked of you is to not cut your fingernails. How hard can that be? To outgrow the length of the fingernails of India's Shridhar Chillal totalling 8.8 metres (29 feet), approximately how long should you go between trims?
7. There's a method for solving a Rubik's cube. So how hard can it be to learn that? Once you've mastered that all that's left is to do it multiple times in an hour. Simple. But to get ahead of the number set by British sportsman George Scholey in 2022, you would need to solve more than 500 of them whilst doing what?
8. How hard can this one be? OK, maybe a little bit tough if you are not a man. All you need to outdo American Joel Strasser's effort in 2018, is to gather more than 3500 toothpicks and insert them where?
9. How hard can it be to learn all 260 words of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy from Shakespeare's play? Simple enough. Now to race ahead of Canadian Sean Shannon's record-breaking speech in 1995 how would you have to deliver it?
10. OK, so I've helped you set nine new world records. How hard was that? But is nine records enough to help you beat Ashrita Furman's total from "Guinness World Records"?
