Idaho Man holds 100 lit candles in his mouth for 100th Guinness record
At a time where everything is recorded and anyone can set a world record doing pretty much anything, an Idaho man set his 100th Guinness World Record on Thursday by holding 100 candles in his mouth and lighting them at the same time. Sounds legit.
David Rush previously set records like eating the most corn kernels with a toothpick in three minutes. There really is a world record for everything.
At Thursday's TEDxBoise event, which Keke and I somehow missed, Rush stuffed the unlit candles in his mouth, waited for someone to light them, and then held them there for a full 30 seconds.
He reportedly used the record-breaking feat to promote STEM education.
