275x250.jpg Can you remember what you were doing on 15th March 2003? Or what the weather was like on 30th May 2007? British student Aurelien can, in fact he can remember EVERYTHING!

The 20-year-old is one of just a handful of people in the world who are baffling scientists with their ability to recall every detail of every day of their lives, a condition known as superior autobiographical memory.

Aurelien - who is the subject of a documentary on Channel 4 - can apparently even recall exactly what he did on every day since the age of four, including details of conversations and what he had for lunch.

In the show Aurelien is put to the test by eight time world memory champion, Dominic O'Brien, and examined by memory expert Professor Giuliana Mazzoni.

275x250.jpg A female sumo wrestler from London has been named as the heaviest sportswoman in the world after weighing in at 32 stone.

The 46-year-old mother of three is the only female sumo wrestler on the British Sumo Team and has only been competing for six years.

Sharran consumes 5,000 calories a day (two and a half times than recommended for the average woman) and to build strength and stamina she swims and walks.

After her marriage broke up eight years ago, she says it was wrestling that gave her the confidence to look for love: “I used to be ashamed of my size. But after taking up sumo I learned to love my body. The Guinness World Records recognition tops it off.”

275x250.jpg As you can probably tell from this photo, the reason we are writing about Mostafa Ismail from Egypt has something to do with his arms. He has the world record for the biggest biceps and triceps.

His arms have a whopping circumference of 64.77 cm (25.5 in) a fact which gained him a place in the new Guinness World Records 2013 book.

The 24 year-old, who trains six days a week and eats six meals a day and now lives in Massachusetts, USA, has arms with a greater circumference than the average human head!  

His right upper-arm circumference is 63.5 cm (25 in) flexed and 60.96 cm (24 in) non-flexed, and his left upper-arm circumference is 64.77 cm (25.5 in) flexed and 62.23 cm (24.5 in) non-flexed. 


Eva Halpain and John Manassel thought they were getting their moment in the spotlight when a TV crew came to interview them after a tree fell and caused damage to their home.


But the elderly couple from Benton, Arkansas, were somewhat upstaged during the TV interview … when a naked man appeared wandering out of the woods near their home.

Prompted by Manassel asking "What is this out there that we got?" and then stating that he should "start an ass-kicking contest" the TV crew turned the camera onto the naked man.

Local police are reported to have said that the 22-year-old man was high on drugs when he walked out of the woods and that he was arrested and charged with public intoxication and indecent exposure.
