Top 10 records that will never be broken, forever in legend

If there’s one super classy thing to do in your life, it’s to beat a record, it’s an incredible feat that unfortunately can quickly be overtaken by someone stronger than yourself. Although there are some records that have yet to be broken, there is no indication that this will not be the case in the future, such as the highest number of M&M’s stacked (I believe it is five) on which I work actively. We have decided to give you the list of those who will probably never be beaten, the real winning records.

1. “The Lion King” is the best-selling VHS of all time

There are nearly 32 million copies around the world, which represents 520 million dollars in revenue from VHS sales alone. And you have to know that the DVD also sold enormously, so the money continued to fall even after the disappearance of the VHS. Difficult to imagine that a film can break these sales today, compared to the fact that VHS is a bit finite. Otherwise, have you noticed all the hidden details in The Lion King?

2. Uwe Hohn’s javelin throw

In 1984 the athlete Uwe Hohn made history by performing a javelin throw arriving at a distance of 104.80 meters. Most specialists assume that this record will never be broken, because we’ve been trying for almost 40 years and it was really a fucking anomaly. But who knows, maybe one day a really unhappy javelin thrower will do better.

3. The “strange diet” record will probably never be awarded again

Monsieur Mangetout, whose real name is Michel Lotito, was rewarded with this record after having eaten over several years 18 bicycles, 15 supermarket shopping carts, a pair of skis, TVs, beds… In short, various things related to his Pica (eating things that cannot be eaten). It is estimated that in his life he ate nearly nine tons of metal, hard to do better.

4. Franklin Roosevelt, only president of the United States to have been elected four times

It is very unlikely that a new president of the United States will ever break this record, already because four times is a lot but also because now there is a law that limits to two terms. Then we say no, it can change, but it’s also likely that I myself will become President of the United States (which I plan to do anyway, I can reassure you).

5. The longest tennis match in history

The 2010 Wimbledon match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes spanning three days and almost double the previous record length. You will tell me that it would be possible to do better but in reality with the decisive game rule it is unlikely that we will achieve a similar result again. Can you imagine 11 hours of a game as boring as tennis?

6. Aleksandr Karelin, the wrestler who recorded the most victories

It’s quite incredible but this professional athlete of Greco-Roman wrestling recorded 887 victories and only two defeats in his career, becoming probably the most dominant athlete in history. After he became governor and joined Putin’s team, it’s less glorious.

7. The fastest “New York – Los Angeles” in history by car

In May 2020, the “cannonball” record was set for the fastest crossing of the country to connect these two cities: all in 25.5 hours. What makes it unlikely to happen again is that the participants were allowed to run in full confinement, thus taking advantage of completely empty roads and non-existent traffic. To give you an idea we are talking about 4507 km of course and a constant pace between 173 and 193 km/h. It’s not with my 107 that we would have recorded that.

8. Three F1 racers who qualify for a Grand Prix with exactly the same time

It happened only once, it was at the 1997 European Grand Prix when Heinz Harald Frentzen, Jacques Villeneuve and Michael Schumacher all qualified with exactly the same time to the nearest millisecond: 1′ 21″ 072 This is probably the only time in history that this record will exist, if only in terms of probability on the same grand prize.

9. Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in history

It’s not impossible, but it could be really very complicated for any athlete to manage to equal the number of medals won by swimmer Michael Phelps at the various Olympic Games in which he participated. He still has 28 medals, including 23 gold medals, it’s calm. Afterwards, he’s a swimmer, it’s not the sport that’s used every day either, so he’ll calm down Michael instead of talking about it.

10. The fastest 147-point break in snooker

Ronnie O’Sullivan recorded the fastest break of 147 points (the most you can win in a game of snooker) in the world in almost five minutes. If you don’t know the rules roughly red balls are worth 1 point, colored balls more point. To win as many points as possible you have to put a red, black, red, black and so on until there is no more red before putting the other balls in a very specific order .

Ronnie O’Sullivan did it all without any errors in five minutes, making his fastest perfect game ever. If you have five minutes watch the video, it’s taking even if you don’t understand everything.
