Bryan Berg has launched an attempt to break his own Guinness World Record for the largest house of freestanding playing cards at The Venetian Macao, the world’s largest resort-hotel. The attempt to build a replica of The Venetian Macao, The Plaza Macao, and Sands Macao buildings will use more than 190,000 cards and will take 44 days to complete.

Bryan Berg broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Tallest House of Freestanding Playing Cards in 1992 at the age of seventeen, with a tower fourteen feet, six inches tall. He has been commissioned to break his own record more than ten times. His latest structure in the category is over twenty-five feet tall. In 2004, Guinness created a new record category for the World’s Largest House of Cards to further recognize Berg’s work. He continues to hold both records, which require that the builder use no tape, glue, or tricks in his constructions. Touring regularly, Berg has stacked cards in virtually every major US and Canadian city, Europe, and Asia.

Berg was first inspired by his card-player grandfather to begin stacking cards, and is entirely self-taught in all of the techniques he uses today. Berg holds a Professional Degree in Architecture from Iowa State University, where he also served as faculty. He earned his Masters Degree in Design Studies from Harvard University.

Man to get tattoos of every national flag on his body

Guinness Rishi is hoping to become the first person to get tattoos of every national flag on the planet over his entire body.

Mr Rishi, 67, is planning to cover himself in 220 different banners in his quest to become a walking global flag-pole.

Already sporting six tattoos, Canada, Union Jack, India, USA, Cyprus and the Indian Congress Party, on his face, Guinness, who changed his name in honour of the famous record book, believes that he will complete his challenge in three years.

He plans to cover his head and face with the most important one-inch flags before inking from his neck down in alphabetical order.

“I will get eight tattoos done on bony areas such as my face each month and up to 16 on fleshy areas such as my stomach,” said Guinness.

“I am tattooing my entire body including my private parts, but I am not sure which flag I will be sticking there. In the first phase, I believe that I can put 60 tattoos on my head and then we will start working on my body.”

An obsessive record breaker, Guinness already holds four certified world bests and feels that this will be a crowning glory for India.

“People consider me an extraordinary person, not an ordinary person,” he said.

“People who have no money wish to do something in their lives, so the poor people try to break records by their strength or their will.”

His records include ‘taking on the world’s oldest adoptee’, after he legally took custody of his 61-year-old brother-in-law.

Guinness also built the tallest sugar cube tower in the world, which stood at 64 inches.

It looks like a normal photo with a guy sitting down reading a newspaper and two others walking on the sidewalk. If the image is rotated -90 degrees, you’ll see that it is an illusion.

Evolution

Evolution, a topic which opposes science and religion, but hey, it’s not a post to make a debate or anything else, it’s just humor. First, we did not create these images and secondly, I warn you right away, most of them are insulting or can at least be seen as insulting to the majority of countries/continents that are represented and not just Africa…

You have to look at them to the ‘thousandth degree’ because these images use openly the worst clichés that we can have on one country or continent… So why do we publish them, well because I think we can laugh at these pictures if we don’t take them seriously, so relax and don’t forget it’s just humoristic. Check out 19 more pics after the jump.
