World Records are a special thing. There are all kinds of world records out there. Some people are obsessed with getting their names into a record book. They will do almost anything to get their 15 minutes of fame. That is why some records are so comical. Some records cause you to scratch your head and think, really? They can be that strange. And it’s not just the records that are strange. The people themselves who want to achieve records can be really weird as well. It takes a special kind of person to dedicate a great deal of their time to practicing to break a record. You can’t just wake up one morning and decide to swim across an ocean. No, you have to practice and practice. Often times, people who want to break records are competitive and focused. It doesn’t matter what kind of record it is, people need to dedicate their lives to breaking it.
Guinness World Records has specialized in breaking records for decades. At its inception in 1955, the-then The Guinness Book of Records was the foremost publication on breaking records. Since then, the book has chronicled thousands of human achievements and extremes in the world. The book itself is the best-selling copyrighted book of all time. To show how much in demand the subject is, libraries have cited the Guinness book as one of its most stolen items. Guinness takes its records seriously and often times dictates the terms by which someone must break a record. Either way, there are some incredible records out there achieved by some real interesting people.

This definitely goes down as one of the oddest (and best) things I’ve ever come across. This world record is all Nature’s doing. There is a freshwater insect called Micronecta Scholtzi. At only 2 mm in length, these tiny creatures like to make European fresh water lakes and ponds their homes. They also hold the record as having the loudest penis. That’s right, the loudest penis. At 99.2 decibels, the Scholtzi penis emits a sound that is described as the “equivalent to sitting in the front row listening to a loud orchestra playing.” That is an extraordinary feat for such a tiny insect and clearly is deserving of our strangest world record of all time. After that disturbing performance, the Scholtzi definitely deserve a standing O!
