A Mile of Pizza in Italy

Yummm..


1.59545 kilometers, or nearly a mile long and a portable oven was used to bake it.

 

Eighty of Italy’s best pizza-makers worked through the night to create the pizza at Milan’s world fair, Expo 2015. Their toil was rewarded with a proclamation by Guinness World Records judge Saturday that it was the world’s longest pizza. Expo organizers said the record-setting pie, made with 1.5 tons of mozzarella, 5,500 pounds of dough, and 2 tons of tomato sauce, weighed some 5 tons in all.

A Hula Hoop World Record

5,000 Thai contestants are celebrating after setting a world record for the most people dancing with hula hoops simultaneously in one place.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Seyda Subasi-Gemici said Tuesday that 4,483 people had swung hula hoops to dance music for seven minutes without interruption.

The event drew 5,000 participants to an open air stadium at Thammasat University, but 517 contestants dropped off after they failed to keep their hoops up.

The event, organized by the Public Health Ministry's Department of Health, was aimed at creating health awareness among Thais.

The previous world record was set in Taiwan in 2011, when 2,496 participants swung hula hoops in a continuous motion for 2 minutes.
