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!

Hey guys..People have a tendency to get super bored!! Sit around and not know what to do.. Comment down below if you know what i mean haha... That's what used to happen to me, (still does sometimes) I would spend many hours playing video games, watching movies, Shows, and chilling on Facebook, im not saying i dont do these things. i just spend way less time on these habits. Whit if you could do the same and find something else to do? In return this activity can occupy some for your day, entertain you, and give you results! It could be something you always liked, either from childhood, or maybe its something you like to do right now!!! Ill give you an example.  Check out Aleksreader in youtube to see my new idea.. What do you think about it?
