Ashrita’s newst Guinness Record: Most matchsticks extinguished with tongue in 1 minute

A New York man set a new world record by extinguishing more than 30 matches with his tongue in a minute. Ashrita Furman, who holds more than 200 Guinness World Records, claimed the new title for “most matchsticks extinguished with the tongue in 1 minute.” Furman, 61, sat at a table at the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Jamaica and individually lit a total of 37 matches and extinguished them on his tongue to surpass the previous record of 30. He was only permitted to extinguish one match at a time and was prohibited from using his breath to blow them out. (SOURCE: UPI)
