Prepare to lose faith in humanity — from most candles extinguished by farts to loudest scream; here are 10 of the most useless and silliest world records ever.

King Of All Stupid Records

Let’s start with the King of All Stupid Records, also known as Ashrita Furman.

In fact, Furman holds the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most World Records! He has a total of 551 set records. He’s got some serious dedication, this man.
