If you’re a fan of football and don’t know who Pelé is, you should really be ashamed of yourself. Kidding! Or, am I? Anyway, Messi and Ronaldo sure are impressive players, but Pelé holds the record of highest goals Ade throughout his career! Pelé set the record at a whopping 1,281 goals and it has been unbeaten since 1956.

4. Largest Pizza:

Ottavia

The largest pizza is a whopping 13,580 feet! The pizza, known as Ottavia, was prepared by Dovilio Nardi, Andrea Mannocchi, Matteo Nardi and Matteo Giannotte. Hailing from Italy, they were inspired to make this gigantic pizza to pay homage to the first Roman emperor Octavian Augustus. 

5. World’s smallest waist:

It might be creepy to look at, but this record exists so why not know about it? The record of the world’s smallest waist belongs to Cathie Jung. Her waist measures 38.1 cm with a corset and 53.34 cm without it.  Since the year 1983, Jung has worn a corset for 23 hours a day, taking it off only to take a bath. Her enthusiasm for the Victorian age lead her to set this world record.

6. Most Pi places memorized:

This record belongs to Rajveer Meena of India. Meena recalled a total of 70,000 pi digits at the VIT University on 21st March 2015. This feat took almost 10 hours and he was blindfolded the entire time.
