A while ago I came across this article posted in the The Sun. The first thing that popped to mind is how fun it must be to work there! Making up headlines like “Take the third reich and you’ll find…” Never a dull moment I would say... But this article also caught my attention as I also see a lot of weird faces in some of the houses I pass by on the street. Sometimes they look like badly disguised Transformers- while other times I am sure to recognize a celebrity face in them.
This could very well be my overactive imagination so I decided to post this Top 10 “Houses that look like celebrities”. In order to know for sure that I am not losing my marbles- I would really appreciate it if you would let me know if you see the same resemblances 🙂 Also if you come across a picture that has an eerie resemblance to a face- then be sure to add them to the list. See the bottom of the post for instructions on how that works.
In this article you will find photos of weird people who have all become famous for setting a Guinness World Record. Personally I have always been fascinated by the Guinness Book of Records. It’s a place were not just the elite athletes can get added to the records – but also common folks like you and me.
All you need is one bizarre skill and believe it or not… most people have one! It might be a totally useless one like; being able to run very fast on swimming fins- or burp the alphabet backwards (like my grandmother). But it’s still a talent that could get you listed in Guinness’s mythical record book and leave your mark on bizarre facts history.

Physical appearance is also a category that can get you in the record book and these photos of weird people will blow your mind. Some of the people listed are born with it- while others chose for an appearance that most people will find bizarre. Here I have created my personal “Top 10 – Photos of weird people with a Guinness World Record”. Remember you can post your own pictures as well and add them to the list. Just go to the comment section and click the “insert picture” button on the bottom left of the comment box. Ok… now let’s get cracking shall we?!
1. World’s Largest Natural Breasts
The largest natural breasts in the world belong to Annie Hawkins-Turner (aka Norma Stitz) (USA) who has an under breast measurement of 109.22 cm (43 in) and an around chest-over-nipple measurement of 177.8 cm (70 in). Her bra size of 102ZZZ scares the crap out of me personally- but apparently she is forced to hire security to protect her against unwanted grabbers who ‘chase’ her. Yup that is pretty bizarre…
2. World’s Hairiest teenager… is a girl!
The hairiest teenager is Supatra “Nat” Sasuphan from Thailand.(Thailand). She was measured on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Rome, Italy, on 4 March 2010. Supatra was diagnosed with a rare condition that causes hair to grow in places it normally shouldn’t. Of course that condition has made things difficult for her at times. Like having to wake up 1 hour earlier than most people to comb her whole face… But Nat is perfectly happy and doesn’t feel different than anyone else. Now a celebrity, she’s starting to enjoy her fame, and was thrilled by the chance to visit a foreign country. “It’s really fun and exciting,” she said, “and it’s my first time on a plane. I’ve never been outside Thailand.” But her most exciting experience was the moment she was crowned Hairiest Child. “Being hairy makes me special,” she said, adding: “This the happiest day of my life!”.
This girl is the hairiest teenager on the planet and proud of it!
3. World’s Largest Moustache – free grooming tips included!
Ram Singh Chauhan of India is the proud owner of the world’s longest mustache, officially recorded by Guinness World Records as 4.29m (14ft) long. Chauhan spends an hour every day cleaning and combing his mustache. “I massage it and oil it regularly and I wash it every 10 days which takes a long time,” he says. “My wife helps me.” His wife wasn’t always this supporting though. Chauhan’s wife Asha says they used to fight over his mustache in the early years. “He used to take a long time to get ready, to wash and also people used to stare at him,” she says. She didn’t feel comfortable. But later, as he started getting recognition for his long mustache, she started to like it and to respect his commitment. Now, she says, the mustache is like a part of the family and she shares his pride in it.
“I mustache You a question…but I’m shaving it for later!” ~Sean Connery~
4. World’s Largest Honker
Mehmet Ozyurek is the proud title holder for the world’s biggest nose . His giant Schnozola measures an incredible 3.46 inches. That means a fart in a elevator could be downright lethal for this guy! Apparently his record has been broken by Faizan Agha- who won by a nose (pun intended) during an epic standoff in a still unknown location. However his schnauzer was never officially measured by Guinness- making Mehmet still the current title holder.
Mehmet’s record is nothing to sneeze at!
5. Longest Hair in the World
Tran Van Hay was the man with the longest hair in the world. At a young age he cut his hair once- but got really sick right after. Being the superstitious man that he is- he just decided to never cut it again. For over 50 years he let it grow and some say he didn’t wash his hair for over a decade! Hay, whose hair weighed several pounds, died in February 2010 at the age of 79. His Leviathan shaped dreads were measured at 6.8 meters at that time. Now the world’s longest hair record belongs to a woman named Xie Qiuping from China. She has been growing her hair since 1973 and is now at 5.62 m. She still has a long way to go if she wants to catch up with this guy- but all the best to her!
6. Eye-Popping Record
Kim Goodman is able to pop her eyes out of her sockets by a freaking 12 millimeters (0.47 inches). That amazing feat giver her the eyepopping record for farthest eyeball protrusion in the World. She discovered her unique talent one day when she was hit on the head with a hockey mask (holy hell… that must have been a traumatic experience for all parties involved!). Her eyeballs popped out much further than usual and ever since she could pop them out at will. However they can also pop out unwanted, especially when she yawns!
Yup that looks a bit scary!
7. World’s Largest Waist
Walter Hudson of Hempstead New York holds the Guinness World Record for the largest waist. It measured 119 inches (3.02 m) in 1987 when he was at his peak weight of 1,197 lbs. He was considered the fourth most obese human in medical history. Hudson made headlines after becoming wedged into his bathroom doorway and having to be rescued by firefighters. It took 9 men to move him back onto his reinforced bed. The media picked this up big time and he became a celebrity overnight. Hudson- who hadn’t left his house for over 15 years- got inspired by the attention and support he was getting and went on a hardcore diet that made him lose almost 800 pounds! His goal was to be able to walk outside unsupported and greed the media, which he did. Unfortunately he started eating again soon after- and went back to a staggering weight of 1.125 lbs. Soon after that he died from a heart attack on December 24, 1991, at age 46 . He was buried in a specially-constructed, steel-reinforced coffin that was 54 inches (1.4 m) wide, 40 inches (1.0 m) deep, and 88 inches (2.2 m) long.

8. World’s Largest Mouth
Francisco Domingo Joaquim from Angola is the proud owner of the title ”World’s Biggest Mouth”. His mouth measures 17 cm (6.69 inches). Francisco was discovered by Guinness Book or Records researchers who were scouting Youtube for new talent. After a two year search- they were finally able to catch up with him and officially measure his massive mouth. Check out the video to witness the full bizareness of Francisco’s “jaw dropping talent” (again pun intended)!

9. The World’s Smallest Person!
Meet Jyoti Amage, a 18 year old Indian student who Indian student stands just 24.7 inches tall, making this bundle of joy stand at around the same height as a Coca Cola bottle! Amge was formally crowned the world’s shortest teenager, and stands about three inches shorter than Bridgette Jordan, the American woman who held the shortest woman title before her. Amge, who has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, is not expected to grow any more. Off course her size makes certain things harder for her, but she truly is a bundle of joy and perfectly happy with her size. Amge has dreamed of becoming a Bollywood star and plans to pursue a college degree.
“I feel grateful to be this size,” she said. “After all, if I weren’t small and had not achieved these world records I might never have been able to visit Japan and Europe, and many other wonderful countries.”

10. Tallest Person In Recorded History
Robert Pershing Wadlow (February 22, 1918 – July 15, 1940) was the tallest person in history for whom there is recorded evidence.Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1 in (2.72 m) in height and weighed 439 lb (199 kg) at his death at age 22. His great size and his continued growth in adulthood was due to hypertrophy of his pituitary gland, which results in an abnormally high level of human growth hormone. He showed no indication of an end to his growth even at the time of his death. The current tallest person is Sultan Kosen, but with a ‘measingly’ 2.51 m (8 ft 3 in) he would have looked like a dwarf compared to Robert.
Remember- they didn’t have Photoshop in the late 30’s!
Did you know this extreme controversy movie from 1932 casted real people with deformities as the eponymous sideshow “freaks,” rather than using costumes and makeup?[/caption[/showhide]
There’s lots of celebrity crazies out there with a bizarre taste for fashion- but only MJ could get away with looking totally insane- and badass at the same time!
Before we get strarted I would like to point out that I am a huge Michael Jackson fan! I grew up watching his video’s on MTV ( for the younger readers: there was a time when MTV actually played music video’s), I know the lyrics to every single MJ song- and have perfected the “Moon Walk” after years of extensive practise. In my opinion MJ was a musical genius and the best entertainer who ever lived! However he was also the only person on the planet who could claim himself to be the King of something- while wearing a Zorro mask in public and not get locked up in a rubber padded room… when he probably should have.
Michael always seemed to be walking a fine line between genius and utter insanity- and I loved it all! From the white beaded gloves- the gravity defying dance moves- to the baby shaking madman inside him… I love nuts! And nobody… I mean nobody… has managed to turn nuttiness into an art form like he did. His taste for the bizarre didn’t just show in his physical appearance but also in the things he collected during his lifetime. He obviously had an expensive taste because, at the time of his death, Michael had built up around $500 million in debts! Below you will find the Top 10 – Most bizarre things owned by Michael Jackson, which were to be sold at an estate auction to clear these debts.
1. Welcome to planet MJ
This gate ornament was covered with real 24kt gold leaf. The rest of the gate had fiber optics so the “Neverland” letters would twinkle. I guess MJ wasn’t to worried about hiding his Peter Pan complex…
No house should be complete without one of these…
2. Disturbing Oil Paintings…
That’s a lovely painting MJ- love the colours!
Awww… so cute. But why is the little guy crying?
Hmm… isn’t that a little odd?
Wait…shouldn’t she be wearing more clothes?
OMG …what the hell is he doing??!!
OH HELL NO MICHAEL… HELL NO!!!
3. Creepy Looking Dolls
One of your creepiest dolls please…
Wrap up the scary ass baby as well- so that it may haunt me in my dreams forever…
4. Life Size Superhero Statues- shaped in his own image
MJ loved the Dark Knight
Of course no life size superhero collection would be complete without the Man of Steel
5. MJ’s Gold Bust – The humilty
He probably watched Star Wars- when he had this made.
6. Bizarre Portrait Paintings
His Royal Highness
Knighted and Crowned all at once!
Michael’s Poem on the painting
Copyright infringement anyone?

7. Royalty Starters Pack- Mj took his royal status pretty seriously…
Crown and enough jewelry to rival Queen Elizabeth’s crown jewels… Check
8. Macaulay Culkin’s Finger Painting
Never knew Macaulay Culkin was so talented!
9. The Neverland Signs – awesome collectibles!
Considering the Neverland amusement park was worth over $125 million – this sign sure looks crappy!
Does this also remind you of the Dreamworks logo?
Almost sounds like a threat!
10. Gold Plated Coffee Machine!
This looks like the coffee machine of Zeus himself!
Robert Pershing Wadlow (February 22, 1918 – July 15, 1940) was the tallest person in history for whom there is recorded evidence. Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1 in (2.72 m) in height and weighed 439 lb (199 kg) at his death at age 22. His great size and his continued growth in adulthood was due to hypertrophy of his pituitary gland, which results in an abnormally high level of human growth hormone. He showed no indication of an end to his growth even at the time of his death. It’s a sad story really, but holy crap I live in an appartment the size of his shoe!
Remember- they didn’t have Photoshop in the early 40’s!
I know what your thinking, this has to be a Photoshop that somehow involves miniature trees and Lego bricks, right? Well as bizarre as it may seem- this is actually a real building that can fit 4 adults. It’s a treehouse hotel fittingly called the “Treehotel” located in Sweden. This is not their only room that will make you scratch your head in disbelieve, all of their rooms look downright bizarre as you can see below. The Treehotel offers a unique experience as it located in the middle of unspoiled nature making it an awesome place to relax and forget about the time constraints of everyday life.
Autistic Stephen Wiltshire is an amazing artist who draws and paints detailed cityscapes from memory.He has a particular talent for drawing almost eery accurate representations of cities from memory, sometimes after having only observed them for 20 minutes. He is so frightenly accurate that you could call him the human Google Maps. This amazing talent was awarded an MBE for services to the art world in 2006 and his work is popular all over the world.

The airspace above the mine is now closed for helicopters because of a few incidents in which they were sucked in by the downward air flow.
This ginormous hole seems like a scene from some low-budget “End of World Movie”, where a whole town is about to be sucked into an endless abyss. However I can assure you this amazing and surreal looking picture is not something generated on a computer. What you are looking at is an enormous diamond mine in Mirna, Siberia. It measures 525 m deep and 1.25 km in diameter, making it the biggest man-made hole in the world. The suction from the hole is so powerful that helicopters flying over it have crashed. Pretty bizarre huh?
I bet you didn’t know the most famous plummer of all time, Mario has his own optical illusion? This cool illusion showcases the relative motion effect. In the animation below it appears as if Mario is jumping vertically and the shell is flying horizontally. But in reality, both are moving in circles!
Mario + illusion = Win!
So how does this visual optical illusion work? The first thing to note is that, although Mario and the shell are following a similar circular trajectory, they are in antiphase. Which is just a fancy way of saying that when our Italian plummer is at 12 o’clock, the shell is at 6 o’clock. The background image also follows a circular trajectory. But it goes clockwise, so the rotation of the background is opposite to that of Mario and the shell.
No, it’s not a time-lapse photo and it’s not a bad Photoshop either. Right there is exactly what people saw hanging in the sky one December evening in Norway. Can you imagine looking out of your window and seeing that thing in the sky?! You’d assume we were all about to get sucked into another dimension! This bizarre picture has been circulating the internet for years and I bet very few people even considered it to be the real deal. However again we collected the prove to debunk this “it-must-be-Photoshop” rumour.
It is hard to be impressed by anything you see on the interweb, when you know that any teenager with a pirated copy of Photoshop can mash together a fake picture in minutes. Unfortunately this means the web is flooded with mind-blowing, yet real pictures which the masses have written off as “fakes”. One could say these pictures were to jaw-dropping for their own good. That is why we have decided to show you a collection of these photo’s and prove that they are in fact the real deal. Below you will find our first example, which just looks to bizarre to even consider to be real or does it? Well keep reading to learn the surprising truth!
It looks so fake , this isn’t a Photoshop….it’s a freaking MSPaint…
the original mask worn by actor Peter Mayhew was valued for “only” $60,000
“Star Wars” must no doubt have the most fanatic fan base on the planet as last week this original “Star Wars” Chewbacca headpiece topped a prop auction, selling for an astonishing $172,000. Other highlights of the auction were an original art-poster (see below) that went for $73,800 and a “blaster rifle” which fetched $104,550.
As some might know- a lot of Cartoon characters are based on real-life people. However when such a bizarre character as Shrek is actually based on a real person- then we can not let that pass without writing about it!
Maurice Tillet was a French pro wrestler born in 1903. As a child he had a completely normal appearance and Tillet was nicknamed “The Angel” due to his angelic face. He was highly intelligent, allegedly speaking 14 languages and being quite gifted in prose and Chess. He finished law school but always aspired to be an actor. However, in his twenties Maurice developed acromegaly, a condition that made his bones grow uncontrollably large (the same disease that Andre the Giant suffered). It caused him to quit his career as a lawyer as he felt people would not accept his appearance in the courtroom. Now you must think- that must have put him down? Think again! He actually headed the exact opposite of down, by going to the United States and taking advantage of his condition.
He transformed himself into a pro wrestler called the “French Angel”. He soon became so popular that he was booked unstoppable, going undefeated for a span of 19 months. Tillet was arguably the biggest wrestling star during the early 1940’s. He was very famous in his time and not just among wrestling fans. He was the subject of numerous magazine features, and he always made the newspapers, often the front page, when he came into a town for a match. Due to this bizarre occurence of events he was also allowed to fulfill his biggest wish… to become a famous actor and starring in a number of succesful movies. In 1953 Mauric Tillet died, not from Acromegaly but from a heart disease. Just shortly before Maurice Tillet passed away Chicago sculptor Louis Linck befriended Tillet and made a series of plaster busts commemorating him for his wrestling career. One of the busts is in the Chicago’s International Museum of Surgical Science.
A while ago I posted the Harry Potter like invisibility cloak, which according to rumours, is already in use by special forces during no doubt super secret missions. What we have here is another bizarre addition to the arsenal of future soldiers, namely a suit that lets soldiers scale any wall in true superhero fashion!
This amazing piece of equipment, named the Vacuum Ascender, was created by aerospace and mechanical engineering students from the Utah State university in response to a US Air Force competition where several universities were given $20,000 and 9 months to come up with a wall-climbing suit for the Special Forces. The Utah State team were the only ones to succeed, winning the university a extra $50,000 grant. In the video below you can see the Spiderman suit in action!
Most people will probably look at this and go “FAKE”!! You can’t really blame them, when you got a picture that looks as bizarre and frightening as this one. I mean how did a guy in a flippin Kayak get so far in sea and how can anyone take such a pretty picture when their friend is about to become dinner for this monster shark? It just makes no sense and therefore it has to be a Photoshop, right?! Wrong… this photograph was taken by Thomas P. Peschak a contributing photographer to National Geographic Magazine. If you want to true story behind this amazing picture then keep reading…
