bodies: September 2011 Archives


All footballers sweat while playing -- but Walter Pandiani must perspire more than most… he's just been dubbed the world's sweatiest footballer.


The evidence against him, this post-match interview after a clash between this team Espanyol and Getafe.

Having netted the winning goal in the dying minutes press were eager to hear from the match-winner… but they'd have been forgiven for forgetting about his on-pitch performance.

That's because as he spoke, the 35-year-old began to perspire and sweat patches appeared on his shirt and within a few minutes it was hard to spot any dry patches.

275x250.jpg A 22-year-old student from Illinois has been named by Guinness World Records as the new ‘Shortest Living Woman’ -- standing at just 2 ft 3 in (69 cm) tall.

In addition to this title, Bridgette also holds the record for the ‘Shortest Living Siblings’ alongside her brother, 20-year-old Brad Jordan, who measures 3 ft 2 in (98 cm) tall.

While their reduced height is caused by Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II the pair live normal lives and both study at Kaskaskia College.

Bridgette’s hobbies are focused around her love of music; dancing and cheerleading while Brad says he likes to play basketball… no, that was not us making a joke.


A thousand people have stripped off and floated naked in the Dead Sead to take part in a Spencer Tunick photo shoot.


Famous for his flesh-based photos, Tunick has previously snapped masses of naked people in all sorts of locations and settings - including this tribute to LS Lowry.

He says his latest shoot was intended to draw attention to the fact that the Red Sea, water level is currently dropping nearly four feet a year.

So he convinced 1,000 people -- aged from 18 to 77 years old -- to enter the salty lake and pose for a series of images.

Sperm bank turns down donations from redheads

275x250.jpg One of the world's largest sperm banks has said they will start rejecting donations from redheads -- because people don't want ginger babies.

Bosses at Cryos -- an international network of sperm banks -- say a recent surge in donations means they can now be more picky.

As a result they are looking at what traits are not in demand -- and redheaded donors top the list.

While there's said to be a strong demand for sperm from redheaded donors in Ireland, other places in the world are less keen.

A spokesperson for the sperm banks said people do not pick a redhead unless a sterile partner has ginger hair or the woman has a preference for redheads.

275x250.jpg Something tells us Aevin Dugas has a problem getting through some doorways, because she is the proud owner of the largest natural afro in the world.

With a circumference measuring an incredible 4 ft. 4 in (1.32 m) the impressive hair-do has apparently taken over 12 years to grow.

It's now larger than a traditional disco ball and so big the 36-year-old social worker from New Orleans could even fit the world’s shortest man inside!

Aevin says having such a big hairstyle can be problematic, "It’s always getting caught in trees, and one time I even slammed my hair in the car door! And I hate it when people touch it without asking my permission first!"

However, on the upside, she added that it's very comfortable to lie on in bed, "It provides the perfect pillow. I sleep very well." 

275x250.jpg Chanel Tapper had got the competition licked when it came to taking the title for the world's longest tongue -- hers measures 9.75 cm.

That means the 21-year-old student from California has a tongue twice as long as average and the equivalent length of an iPhone.

Her tongue is as long as the world’s largest cockroach; as wide as your palm and the same volume as a quarter pounder hamburger.

Speaking of her terrifically long tongue Chanel said: "I love the shocked reaction I get from people in the street when I stick it out."

However, she admits there is a downside of having a record-breaking tongue: "Most guys who see it automatically have their mind in the gutter… and so do some females."

World's longest fingernails measure 19ft 9in

275x250.jpgWe're having something of a Guinness World Records fest on Newslite today - to mark the release of the 2012 edition of the wonderfully bizarre records book.

And our first new record holder is Christine Walton from Las Vegas -- who has the world's longest fingernails measuring a freaky 19ft 9in (601.9cm).

That's 10ft 2in (309.8cm) on her left hand and 9ft 7in (292.1cm) on her right hand and the 45-year-old singer says she hasn’t cut her fingernails since 1990.

Christine insists the nails don’t prevent her from living a normal life; she can still braid hair, cook and drive, however, she does confess to struggling when shopping for clothes:

"I’ll see the cutest shirts, and they’ll have these skinny arms and I know that my nails would just rip straight through them, she said.

275x250.jpgOverweight women and cheating married men are the most likely to be willing to have sex on a first date, it's been revealed.

A survey of 10,000 British daters looked at which ones would be most open to having sex on the first date.

It was found that larger women are most open to going all the way right after meeting someone on a dating website.

While there was no similar effect in larger men, athletic gents and those who were already married were most likely to have sex on the first date.

On the whole it was discovered that men are more likely to want sex on a first date… and in other news water is wet.
