Default Guiness World Records

Hey Guys, How About We Share Some Stuff From Guiness World Records' Book
You Can Find Infos On http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com
I'll Start With Those:


Heaviest Aircraft Pulled (Individual)
WHO: David Huxley
WHAT: 187 tonnes (184 tons)
WHERE:
Sydney, Australia
WHEN: October 15, 1997

David Huxley pulled a Boeing 747-400, weighing 187 tonnes (184 tons), a distance of 91 m (298.5 ft) in 1 minute and 27.7 seconds on October 15, 1997 at Sydney, Australia. David has now retired from the strongman circuit. He currently owns and runs an event management and public relations company called Tartan Warriors, based in Sydney, Australia.



Heaviest Car Balanced on the Head
WHO: John Evans
WHAT: 159.6 kg (352 lb)
WHERE: London Studios, UK
WHEN: May 24, 1999 <~ My Birthday

It’s death defying, it’s daunting and it’s downright dangerous. But England's John Evans balanced a 159.6 kg (352 lb) Mini on his head for 33 seconds at The London Studios, UK on May 24, 1999.
Dangling cars from his head is all in a day’s work for professional ‘Head Balancer’ Evans. He’s balanced people, books and beers, but the car’s by far the most deadly trick – a strong wind and it could be the end of the road for John.
John’s a gigantic guy. He’s 2 meters tall and weighs in at 155.7 kg (343 lb). But it’s his 60.9cm (24-inch) neck that’s the only part of his body strong enough to take such immense weights. So the slightest slip, trip or nudge could send him tumbling to a crushing death, as his arms wouldn’t be able to cope with the load!
This big fella has broken 25 records in 11 categories and is going for more.


Fastest Handcuff Escape
WHO: Matthew Cassiere
WHAT: 5 seconds
WHERE:
Rhode Island, New England, USA
WHEN: October 30, 2004

Matthew 'Matt the Knife' Cassiere (USA) escaped from a pair of handcuffs belonging to Sgt. Daniel Parrillo (USA) of the Johnston Police Department, in a time of five seconds at Johnston War Memorial Park, Rhode Island, New England, USA, on October 30, 2004.


Fastest Underwater Handcuff Escape
WHO: Matthew Cassiere
WHAT: 11.12 seconds
WHERE:
Rhode Island, New England, USA
WHEN: October 30, 2004

Matthew 'Matt the Knife' Cassiere (USA) escaped from a pair of handcuffs while fully submerged in a lake, in a time of 11.12 seconds at Johnston War Memorial Park, Rhode Island, New England, USA, on October 30, 2004. The handcuffs belonged to Sgt. Daniel Parrillo (USA) of Johnston Police Department.


Longest Skateboard
WHO: Moshe Arazi / Aaron Lyon / David Micley
WHAT: 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in)
WHERE:
Newton, Massachusetts, USA
WHEN: 2005

The world's longest skateboard measured 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in) long, 2 cm (9.8 in) wide and 5 cm (2 in) thick, and was made by Moshe Arazi, Aaron Lyon and David Micley (all USA). It was made in Newton, Massachusetts, USA and completed in 2005.

I heard yesterday on the news about the restaurant named " بوابة دمشق"

مساحته 54 ألف متر مربع بتكلفة 27 مليون دولار ويضم حجراً نيزكياً
"بوابة دمشق" يدخل "غينيس" كأكبر مطعم في العالم بـ6012 كرسياً


انتزع مطعم "بوابة دمشق" السوري لقب "أكبر مطعم في العالم"، وفق ما أعلنت موسوعة غينيس للأرقام القياسية، لكونه يتسع لـ 6012شخصا، موزعين على 6 أقسام.

وأنشئ المطعم في احدى ضواحي العاصمة السورية في عام 2002، على مساحة تبلغ 54 ألف متر مربع. ويضم مطبخاً مساحته 2500 متر مربع ويبلغ عدد العاملين فيه 1200 شخص، يزيد عددهم الى 1800 في ذروة الموسم السياحي.



ولا يقدم المطعم المشروبات الروحية، لكن قائمة الاصناف التي يقدمها لرواده تشمل أطعمة من الهند والصين وايران فضلا عن الاطباق السورية التقليدية، إلى جانب الأطباق الخليجية.

وانتزع "بوابة دمشق" لقب أكبر مطعم في العالم من مطعم "التنين الذهبي" التايلاندي الذي يسع 5000 شخص. ويشير مدير عمليات "غينيس" في سوريا قصي هلسة إلى أن المعيار الذي استندت إليه الموسوعة الدولية هو قدرة المطعم الفعلية
على خدمة هذا العدد من الزبائن، مضيفاً "قد نرى أي مساحة تضم عدد غير محدود من الكراسي والطاولات. إلا أننا فوجئنا، خلال الفحص والتدقيق، أنه يضم معدات تحوله إلى شبه معمل صغير، يخدم هذا العدد الهائل".

من جهته، أكد مدير المطعم مهند شاكر السمان، في تصريحات نشرت الخميس 5-6-2008، أن المراسلات مع إدارة "غينيس" امتدت نحو 4 سنوات للحصول على شهادة "أكبر مطعم في العالم". وأشار إلى أن الكلفة الإجمالية للمطعم قاربت الـ 27 مليون دولار. أما مساحته فتصل إلى 54 ألف متر مربع، منها 2500 متر مربع للمطبخ.

أمام "مفاجأة" المطعم، وفق السمان، فتتمثل في احتوائه حجر نيزكي فريد من نوعه، سقط عام 1947 في سيبيريا، وكان من أملاك الاتحاد السوفياتي قبل أن يشتريه والده مقابل 15 مليون دولار. وأشار السمان إلى الحجر النيزكي يزن 106 كيلوغرامات، "وحضرت وكالة ناسا الفضائية لأخذ عينة منه، وحاولت شراءه، لكن الوالد رفض"، وفق ما يؤكد السمّان.

ويضم المطعم مجسماً لبوابة دمشق، التي تشبه شكلا وحجما بوابة تدمر الاصلية، بالاضافة الى بوابة "تاج محل" التي تم تصميمها بشكل مطابق للتصميم الأصلي. كما يشمل 5 نوافير مائية و4 شاشات سينمائية لعرض الاحداث مباشرة، و6 شاشات تلفزيونية داعمة لها. ويضم أيضاً صالة ألعاب بسينما ثلاثية الأبعاد هي الاولى في سوريا، ومضمار سباق للدراجات الصغيرة، وساحة للسيارات الكهربائية، وقطار كهربائي، استغرق إنشاؤه نحو عامين

That was a Guinness record
