10 of the Weirdest Guinness Records Ever

Largest collection of toothpaste

Largest collection of…toothpaste? Garden gnomes we get. But one Georgia dentist, Val Kolpakov, couldn’t stop his penchant for buying various tubes of toothpaste. His collection, which entered the Guinness Records in 2012, numbered at 2,037 at last count.

Weird, wacky, and sometimes downright dangerous, these Guinness records demonstrate people’s interest in becoming the world’s best at something. One wonders what categories may emerge in future quests for world records.
