    Longest wheel spin


    The greatest length of time a car has screeched its wheels to impress some girls was achieved on 9th July 1988 by Wayne Fletcher (GB) in his Mk II Ford Escort. When traffic lights in Stockport, Cheshire turned green, Fletcher attempted to pull off at such speed that his front wheels spun for an amazing 42 secs before the car began to move. Both tyres fell to pieces and the clutch dropped off twenty yards down the road. The girls walked off.

    Got anymore?

    Most potatoest coloured skin

    Nicholas Wilson emerges, blinking into the daylight for the first time in five years.

    Nicholas Wilson of Largs, Lanarkshire (GB) holds the record as Britain's most translucent teenager. After devoting 5 years to reaching Level 30 of 'The Tomb Raider Chronicles' in his bedroom with the curtains drawn, Wilson's skin was assessed to have a pasteyness value of 8.7 on the Maris-Piper scale, aproximately four times as pale as Shane McGowan.

    Funnily enough something similar happened to a mate of mine, he was trying to show off in his piss poor Corsa, wheel spun as much as he could then one of his tyres popped. I found it hilarious, went to drive off but then almost stalled due to accidently being in 3rd instead of 1st, so I couldnt laugh too much.

    Film Confusion


    The greatest length of time a woman has watched a film without asking a stupid plot-related question was achieved on the 28th October 1990, when Mrs. Ethel Brunswick (GB) sat down with her husband to watch 'The Ipcress File'. She watched in silence for a breath-taking 2 mins 40 secs before asking "Is he a goody or a baddie, then, him in the glasses?", revealing a staggering level of ignorance. This broke her own previous record set in 1962 when she sat through 2 mins 38 secs of '633 Squadron' before asking "Is this a war film, is it?"
