Each year, the Guinness Book of World Records releases an updated version of the book, containing the newest achievements. The Guinness Book of World Records 2012 was released on September 15, 2011. It has the latest records as well as a spotlight on record breaking celebrities and royal wedding fever. In honor of the 2012 end of the world conspiracy, the book has an entire spread dedicated to ancient civilizations.

What are some of the newest records? Stewie, a five year old feline, can claim the title of the world’s longest domestic cat. With over 2,429 knickknacks, a woman in the US has the largest collection of cow items. And a man in India has the longest moustache – it measure over 4 metres long!
