He picked himself up

Floridian Wesley Williams broke his back a couple of years ago when he fell off his 27 foot unicycle at a Spain’s Got Talent event. According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], he survived the fall and, to paraphrase that old song suggests, he picked himself up, dusted himself off and started all over again. But his time he didn’t break any bones but he did break the Guinness record for building the world’s tallest unicycle — nearly 32 feet in height — and riding it for a distance of nearly 28 feet 27 feet.





Forest rangers in Queensland, Australia on patrol in Conway National Park got quite a shock recently when they came across Toadzilla. The average toad weighs in at about 3 ounces, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Toadzilla, the name the rangers gave the cane toad they found, weighed nearly six pounds. Ranger Kylee Gray said she “reached down and grabbed the cane toad and couldn’t believe how big and heavy it was … A cane toad that size will eat anything it can fit into its mouth, and that includes insects, reptiles and small mammals.”




A very big pizza pie

In 2012 Italian pizza chefs set the record for the largest pizza known to man — a very hungry man, of course. It measured 13,580.28 square feet, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Not to be outdone, America’s Pizza Hut chain outdid the Italians by baking a 14,100 square foot pizza pie on the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center. They layed out the dough, topped it with cheese and sauce and then used heat lamps to bake the [tasty?] treat. Why did they do it?  The chain wanted to break the Guinness Record and tell us that they were bringing back its Big New Yorker pizza — a somewhat bigger version of their standard pizza pie — that they discontinued 25 years ago.
