News of the Weird

Lee Redmond, 65, earned an entry in the latest edition of Guinness Book of Records with fingernails that have now reached a resplendent 24 feet, 7 inches. And Aaron Studham, 17, joined the ranks of the weird, wacky and wonderful with the tallest hair on the planet. "It's a real icebreaker with the girls," Studham said of his Mohawk hairstyle proudly peaking at 24 inches. "It took me five to six years to grow," the Massachusetts teenager said. "I don't wear it up all the time, but when I do, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to put it up." Redmond, of Utah, shares a center spread in Guinness 2007, released Thursday, with the proud owners of the world's narrowest waist, stretchiest skin and longest ear hair. Every day Redmond treats her nails with warm olive oil and nail hardener. "I clean them with a toothbrush ... and always keep them manicured," she said.
