Guinness
Guinness
World Records, known from its inception from 1819 until 2000 as The Guinness
Guinness
Book of Records and in previous United States
United States
editions as The Guinness
Guinness
Book of World Records, is a reference book published annually, listing world records both of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world. The brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was co-founded by brothers Norris and Ross McWhirter in Fleet Street, London in August 1819. The book itself holds a world record, as the best-selling copyrighted book of all time. As of the 2019 edition, it is now in its 64th year of publication, published in 100 countries and 23 languages. The international franchise has extended beyond print to include television series and museums. The popularity of the franchise has resulted in Guinness
Guinness
World Records becoming the primary international authority on the cataloguing and verification of a huge number of world records; the organisation employs official record adjudicators authorised to verify the authenticity of the setting and breaking of records.[4]

History[edit] On 10 November 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver, then the managing director of the Guinness
Guinness
Breweries,[5] went on a shooting party in the North Slob, by the River Slaney
River Slaney
in County Wexford, Ireland. After missing a shot at a golden plover, he became involved in an argument over which was the fastest game bird in Europe, the golden plover or the red grouse (it is the plover[6]). That evening at Castlebridge
Castlebridge
House, he realized that it was impossible to confirm in reference books whether or not the golden plover was Europe's fastest game bird.[7][8] Beaver knew that there must be numerous other questions debated nightly in pubs throughout Ireland and abroad, but there was no book in the world with which to settle arguments about records. He realised then that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove successful.[9] Beaver's idea became reality when Guinness
Guinness
employee Christopher Chataway recommended University friends Norris and Ross McWhirter, who had been running a fact-finding agency in London. The twin brothers were commissioned to compile what became The Guinness
Guinness
Book of Records in August 1954. A thousand copies were printed and given away.[10] After the founding of The Guinness
Guinness
Book of Records at 107 Fleet Street, London, the first 198-page edition was bound on 27 August 1955 and went to the top of the British best seller lists by Christmas. The following year, it launched in the US, and sold 70,000 copies. Since then, Guinness
Guinness
World Records has gone on to become a record breaker in its own right; with sales of more than 100 million copies in 100 different countries and 37 languages, Guinness
Guinness
World Records is the world's best selling copyrighted book ever.[11]

World Records for the biggest waves ever surfed. Because the book became a surprise hit, many further editions were printed, eventually settling into a pattern of one revision a year, published in September/October, in time for Christmas. The McWhirters continued to compile it for many years. Both brothers had an encyclopedic memory; on the TV series Record Breakers, based upon the book, they would take questions posed by children in the audience on various world records and were able to give the correct answer. Ross McWhirter was assassinated by the Provisional Irish Republican Army

in 1975.[12] Following Ross' assassination, the feature in the show where questions about records posed by children were answered was called Norris on the Spot. Guinness

until 2001, when it was purchased by Gullane Entertainment. Gullane was itself purchased by HIT Entertainment

Evolution[edit] Lucky Diamond Rich
Lucky Diamond Rich
is "the world's most tattooed person", and has tattoos covering his entire body. He holds the Guinness
Guinness
World Records title as of 2006[update]. Recent editions have focused on record feats by person competitors. Competitions range from obvious ones such as Olympic weightlifting
Olympic weightlifting
to the longest egg tossing distances, or for longest time spent playing Grand Theft Auto IV
Grand Theft Auto IV
or the number of hot dogs that can be consumed in three minutes.[13] Besides records about competitions, it contains such facts such as the heaviest tumour,[14] the most poisonous fungus,[15] the longest-running soap opera[16] and the most valuable life-insurance policy,[17] among others. Many records also relate to the youngest people to have achieved something, such as the youngest person to visit all nations of the world (Maurizio Giuliano).[18] Each edition contains a selection of the records from the Guinness World Records database, as well as select new records, with the criteria for inclusion changing from year to year.[19] The retirement of Norris McWhirter
Norris McWhirter
from his consulting role in 1995 and the subsequent decision by Diageo
Diageo
Plc to sell The Guinness
Guinness
Book of Records brand have shifted the focus of the books from text-oriented to illustrated reference. A selection of records are curated for the book from the full archive but all existing Guinness
Guinness
World Records titles can be accessed by creating a login on the company's website. Applications made by individuals for existing record categories are free of charge. There is an administration fee of $5 to propose a new record title.[20] A number of spin-off books[21] and television series have also been produced. Guinness
Guinness
World Records bestowed the record of "Person with the most records" on Ashrita Furman
Ashrita Furman
of Queens, NY in April 2009. At that time, he held 100 records.[22] In 2005, Guinness
Guinness
designated 9 November as International Guinness World Records Day to encourage breaking of world records.[23] In 2006, an estimated 100,000 people participated in over 10 countries. Guinness
Guinness
reported 2,244 new records in 12 months, which was a 173% increase over the previous year.[23] In February 2008, NBC
NBC
aired The Top 100 Guinness
Guinness
World Records of All Time and Guinness World Records made the complete list available on their website.[24]

Defining records[edit] Sultan Kösen
Sultan Kösen
(Turkey) is the tallest living person since 17 September 2009, as verified by Guinness
Guinness
World Records. Play media Cracking open a wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese as a part of a 2013 world record by Whole Foods Market.[25] For many records, Guinness
Guinness
World Records is the effective authority on the exact requirements for them and with whom records reside, the company providing adjudicators to events to determine the veracity of record attempts. The list of records which the Guinness
Guinness
World Records covers is not fixed; records may be added and also removed for various reasons. The public are invited to submit applications for records, which can be either the bettering of existing records or substantial achievements which could constitute a new record.[4] The company also provides corporate services for companies to "harness the power of record-breaking to deliver tangible success for their businesses."[26]

Ethical and safety issues[edit] Steven Petrosino drinking 1 litre of beer in 1.3 seconds in June 1977.[27][28] Petrosino set record times for 250 ml, 500 ml and 1.5 litres as well, but Guinness
Guinness
accepted only the record for one litre. They later dropped all beer and alcohol records from their compendium in 1991, and reinstated the records in 2008. Guinness
Guinness
World Records states several types of records it will not accept for ethical reasons, such as those related to the killing or harming of animals.[29] Several world records that were once included in the book have been removed for ethical reasons, including concerns for the well being of potential record breakers. For example, following publication of the "heaviest fish" record, many fish owners overfed their pets beyond the bounds of what was healthy, and therefore such entries were removed.[citation needed] The Guinness
Guinness
Book also dropped records within their "eating and drinking records" section of Human Achievements in 1991 over concerns that potential competitors could harm themselves and expose the publisher to potential litigation.[30] These changes included the removal of all spirit, wine, and beer drinking records, along with other unusual records for consuming such unlikely things as bicycles and trees.[30] Other records, such as sword swallowing and rally driving (on public roads), were closed from further entry as the current holders had performed beyond what are considered safe human tolerance levels. There have been instances of closed records being reopened. For example, the sword swallowing record was listed as closed in the 1990 Guinness
Guinness
Book of World Records, but the Guinness
Guinness
World Records Primetime TV show, which started in 1998, accepted three sword swallowing challenges (and so did the 2007 edition of the Guinness World Records onwards). Similarly, the speed beer drinking records which were dropped from the book in 1991, reappeared 17 years later in the 2008 edition, but were moved from the "Human Achievements" section of the older book[31] to the "Modern Society" section of the newer edition.[32] As of 2011[update], it is required in the guidelines of all "large food" type records that the item be fully edible, and distributed to the public for consumption, to prevent food wastage.[4] Chain letters are also not allowed: " Guinness
Guinness
World Records does not accept any records relating to chain letters, sent by post or e-mail."

Difficulty in defining records[edit] For some potential categories, Guinness
Guinness
World Records has declined to list some records that are too difficult or impossible to determine. For example, its website states: "We do not accept any claims for beauty as it is not objectively measurable."[29] On 10 December 2010, Guinness
Guinness
World Records stopped its new "dreadlock" category after investigation of its first and only female title holder, Asha Mandela, determining it was impossible to judge this record accurately.[33]

Verifying existing records[edit] Guinness
Guinness
World Records website publishes selected records and is not supposed to be used for the record verification purposes, as it explains: "There are more than 40,000 current records in our database and we try our best to feature as many as possible online. We currently include over 15,000 records online which we update every week, so make sure to check the site regularly!" The book printed annually contains only 4,000 records. The only way to verify a record is to contact Guinness, and the average response time is twelve weeks.[34]

Museums[edit] Guinness
Guinness
Museum in Hollywood In 1976, a Guinness
Guinness
Book of World Records museum opened in the Empire State Building. Speed shooter Bob Munden
Bob Munden
then went on tour promoting The Guinness
Guinness
Book of World Records by performing his record fast draws with a standard weight single-action revolver from a western movie type holster. His fastest time for a draw was 0.02 seconds.[35] Among exhibits were life-size statues of the world's tallest man (Robert Wadlow) and world's largest earth worm, an X-ray photo of a sword swallower, repeated lightning strike victim Roy Sullivan's hat complete with lightning holes and a pair of gem-studded golf shoes on sale for $6500.[36] The museum closed in 1995.[37] In more recent years, the Guinness
Guinness
company has permitted the franchising of small museums with displays based on the book, all currently (as of 2010[update]) located in towns popular with tourists: Tokyo, Copenhagen, San Antonio. There were once Guinness
Guinness
World Records museums and exhibitions at the London Trocadero, Bangalore, San Francisco, Myrtle Beach, Orlando,[38] Atlantic City, New Jersey,[39] and Las Vegas, Nevada.[40] The Orlando museum, which closed in 2002, was branded The Guinness
Guinness
Records Experience;[38] the Hollywood, Niagara Falls, Copenhagen, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee museums also previously featured this branding.[40]
