A man in India named Manoj Kumar Maharana has been working hard to really accomplish something while the rest of us have just been sitting on our butts in front of the computer: breaking a Guinness World Record.
What record you might ask? Well that's a good question cause it's one you probably didn't know existed. The record for most straws in your mouth at once. Hold the gasp.
It's crazy how many oddball records people really work to break. Half the time it makes you wonder how the records even started in the first place, it feels like they're basically invented on the spot and Guinness is like, yep we can do that.
Well as of yesterday, the organization announced news that Maharana has officially broken an eight year record for most straws in a person's mouth, coming in at 459.
The process looked very intense. Apparently he had been practicing for quite awhile leading up to the attempt and it definitely didn't look like any easy feat. It does make you question when he decided he'd be cut out for this line of work, but hey he's a record holder now so it's hard to argue.
If you want to see this excruciating process, here's the vid:
Maharana's accomplishment has a lot of people questioning what the heck they've been doing with their lives because clearly he's living his best life:
It's never too late to try and break a World Record, and you just need to make it to 460. Totally doable right? Well don't let your dreams be dreams. You could be the next world record holder. It'd definitely be great ice breakers for dates.
Then, hit the bar for drinks. You'll be the most popular person there!
