There's only one official body for determining who’s the undisputed best at obscure achievements. Guinness World Records travels the globe to test people and determine if they're the undisputed champion of… whatever. Think you have what it takes to be the GOAT of your weird thing?

Most words in a hit single . Guinness keeps track of all kinds of celebrity records, like the most Twitter followers, the highest grossing stars, and also the most words in a hit single. Should come as no surprise that Eminem is the record holder. "Rap God" fills it’s six minutes with 1,560 words . ( x )
Longest nose on a living person . This real life Pinnochio also lives in Italy, where officials measured his 3.46 inch nose. No word on if Mehmet Özyürek ’s nose grows every time he tells a lie. ( x )
Loudest purring cat . Merlin an adorable black and white cat in Devon set the record by a whisker, by purring at 67.8 decibels . The previous record was from 2011 when Smokey purred at a whopping 67.68. These cats are as loud as a dishwasher or air conditioning unit. ( x )
Most expensive fungus . The fervor over truffles in upscale eateries doesn't seem like it will abate any time soon. The rarest white truffle is the T about magnatum pico and it's also the most expensive. It only grows in one region of Italy, about a foot underground so truffle hunters need dogs with special training to find it. Depending on the season, a pound of the truffles is worth over $ 1,300 .

Most people lifted and thrown in 2 minutes . This seems like a productive way to let out some pent up aggression. Back in 2008 in Spain, Aneta Florczyk lifted and then threw 12 people . Unfortunately, Guinness doesn't get into the why of these records. ( x )
Longest dog tongue . Rescue St. Bernard Mochi lives in South Dakota and also deserves an award for cuteness, but she’s officially the dog with the longest tongue in the world. It measures 7.3 inches and she uses it for eating peanut butter, which she loves. ( x )
Most spacewalks by a female . This one isn't weird, but just a cool woman that you should know. Peggy Whitson has a couple of world records, like the oldest woman in space (at 56) and the most accumulated time on spacewalks by a woman ( 60 hours, 21 minutes ). She’s an awesome lady who has spent 665 days in outer space. ( x )
Stretchiest skin . The one is the stuff of nightmares. Garry Turner, who lives in the UK has a medical condition that allows his skin to stretch more than most people. The condition is Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. It affects all connective tissues in the body. He stretched his stomach skin 6.25 inches away from his body to set this record. ( x )
