Buffalo is a pretty remarkable city. So much so that as a city, there are world records that either took place here, or someone from here achieved them. We are proud of our pancake flipping marathon running world record holders! Who knew we held so many pancake records??
You may have seen him on the news. He goes by "Grip" or "Grippy" and he is the guy who has started organizing the world record attempt at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the "World's Loudest Stadium". With this kind of excitement, it's kind of hard to imagine it NOT happening.
It’s considered the longest road in the world. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it extends from Prudhoe Bay in Northern Alaska down through Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central America and into South America.

I want to know why I never know when this stuff is happening! How fun does this look? It's the world's largest human domino topple according to Guiness' Book of World Records. It consists of 850 people strapped to mattress falling on their backs.
Archery is hard enough when you're doing it with your arms. Imagine trying to do it without arms all together. That's just what Matt Stutzman does. He was born without arms but has found a way to adapt. Now he's got a record in his pocket for a 230 yard shot.
For the first time in his life, Junrey Balawing is standing head and shoulders over everyone else.
Balawing can indeed look down on everyone else now that he has been named the world's shortest man by Guinness World Records. The Filipino man received the honor in a ceremony Sunday, which just so happened to be the same day he turned 18.
