av Guinness World Records: Behind The Book | Publicerades 10/31/2019

Why grow your fingernails to a combined length of nearly nine metres? And how do you use the toilet if your thumbnail alone is 90 cm long?

In this week’s episode of Guinness World Records: Behind The Book, Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday (who, as he explains, nearly died from biting his fingernails!) explains the history of VERY long nails and tells you about the people who have earned a place in the record books because of them. We also hear from Lee Redmond who grew her nails for more than 30 years, setting the record for the longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) at 8.65 metres.
