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.

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!

Exactly! I think that that is because so many boys like to slack off. Although some boys may be smarter than girls, the majority of girls are smarter than boys. I once thought that I got an F on one of my tests because of all the red marks, but I flipped the paper over and, what do you know? It just so happened to be a boy's name. Though I dont know who he was, I knew that he was probably up 'till midnight studying. Staying up till midnight studying is a really bad idea, 'cause by mornin' you would probably forget everything.
