Print article What appears to be the largest halibut caught in the Pacific Ocean in at least a decade has been landed in the Alaska Panhandle port of Gustavus, but it will not be a world record. International Game Fish Association rules ban the use of any tools other than a net or gaffe for landing fish, and the Florida-based IGFA maintains the international record book.
Unfortunately, it is dangerous to pull monster halibut aboard a small boat. Their thrashing has been known to injure people and even sink watercraft.
I tend to roll my eyes when I see records that are so easy to execute with a large college campus like “Most people dressed up as Waldo in one place/world’s .

Of course she does, the filthy minx. The most impressive medically verified penis sets the sex record at The smallest penis ever recorded sets the sex record at 0. There are a couple of conditions that can leave a man lacking so dramatically in his nether region. One such condition is having a micropenis, where most of the penis actually resides inside the body. On the other, erm, hand, having a humungous penis may sound like the dream, but for those who actually possess one the opposite seems to be true.
He wanted to prove that his penis was real so he could 1 get disability allowance on account of his huge peen being an occupational hazard; and 2 get recognition from Guinness World Records.

The world`s longest tunnel has taken shape deep beneath the Swiss Alps as fifteen years of boring, drilling and carving through solid rock comes to a close.
The political impasse, which started with a disagreement over corruption allegations around a renewable energy scheme, among other issues, has fundamentally altered the way the region has been governed, for well over a year. Northern Ireland had previously been governed by a power-sharing agreement that was enshrined in law by the Good Friday Agreement. Both sides used egregious violence to achieve their ends, in a conflict that left over 3, people dead in a country whose population numbered less than a million.
With the Good Friday Agreement now in its 20th year, both sides appear no closer to resolving their differences. The government has acknowledged the deep frustration of the public in Northern Ireland as the region reached an unwanted milestone for nongovernance. Meanwhile, citizens are getting frustrated.

History[ edit ] Early road trains consisted of traction engines pulling multiple wagons. The first identified road trains operated into South Australia’s Flinders Ranges from the Port Augusta area in the mid 19th century. During the Crimean war a traction engine was used to pull multiple open trucks. After his death, Daimler, which had acquired the rights, attempted to market it in the United Kingdom . It is shown in the No. The Renard Road Train, page Australian Kurt Gerhardt Johannsen is recognised as the inventor of the modern road train.
Provided with financing of about pounds and inspired by the tracking abilities of the Government roadtrain, Johannsen began construction. Two years later his first road train was running. Both wheel sets on each trailer could steer, and therefore could negotiate the tight and narrow tracks and creek crossings that existed throughout Central Australia in the earlier part of the 20th century. Freighter Trailers in Australia viewed this improved invention and went on to build self-tracking trailers for Kurt and other customers, and went on to become innovators in transport machinery for Australia.
Australia[ edit ] Double-stacked trailers with a small truck and gooseneck dolly as well being unloaded at Timber Creek, Northern Territory, Australia Double two-trailer road train combinations are allowed on some roads in most states of Australia, including specified approaches to the ports and industrial areas of Adelaide , South Australia  and Perth , Western Australia.

Most of the comments have been supportive, but many have been critical—which is not surprising. Among the critical comments, several of the most thoughtful have raised similar questions, that go something like this: If there is really nothing to this global warming scare, then how and why have so many people calling themselves climate scientists gotten together to conspire to promote this story to the public?
After all, how would such a conspiracy even work? Do hundreds of them hold clandestine meetings where they recognize each other with some kind of secret handshake? As examples of relatively balanced comments raising this point, there are two from a guy named Steven Wangsness. What is the incentive for all these presumably normal, well-educated folks to engage in such a pernicious hoax? You also assume that thousands of PhDs around the world are engaged in a massive conspiracy and not one of them has broken ranks and busted the hoax.
It just seems implausible to Mr. And perhaps, if thought of as a conspiracy, they are right.
What is the world record for staying awake? He was attempting to break the world record of hours awake set by Randy Gardner of San Diego in Wright was also attempting to demonstrate that, thanks to his “caveman diet” of raw food, he was able to “train his mind in such a way as to stay awake for 11 days and remain coherent and aware of what was going on around him. Gardner didn’t actually hold the world record for staying awake. Gardner’s record had long since been surpassed by others.
So Wright didn’t set a new record.

January 30, Runner Ron Hill of England. The year-old former Olympian did not run Sunday for the first time in 52 years and 39 days — a streak that dates back to Dec. I thought I might die but just made it to one mile in 16 minutes and 34 seconds. There was no other option but to stop. I owed that to my wife, family and friends, plus myself.
The records are submitted by runners on the honor system, but Mark Washburne, who keeps both the U. Three other Americans are not far behind and all are probably young enough to pass Hill’s record if they continue. I talked to Sutherland a couple of years ago when he set the American streak record at 16, days — 45 years and two days, or , miles of putting one foot in front of another. He said then that he had run despite 10 broken bones and two knee surgeries, plus countless late-night heavy-metal concerts he attended as a journalist and record producer.
He arranged to run right before his knee surgeries and then, without consulting his doctor, on the days right after them. He had averaged When it reached 50 years, he told Runner’s World that the most serious threat to his mark came in when he broke his sternum in a car accident. Fortunately, he had already run that day.
