While there are some famous records that many of us wish to break. But there are also some odd and bizarre world records recorded by the Guinness Book records that we’d never wish to break. For example, professional stuntman Josef Todtling set his entire body on fire and got dragged by a horse. Todtling traveled 500 m in this bizarre position. He was protected by several ways and didn’t get harmed. But he did set the record for farthest distance pulled by a horse while on a full-body burn. If that one struck you as odd, here are 10 Odd World Records Nobody Wants To Beat:
1. Farthest Distance Survived Inside a Tornado:

Evel Knievel, an American stunt performer who is popular in motorcycle long jumping exhibitions, holds the record for most bones broken in a lifetime.

Then Animal control arrived and they thought she was a carcass and put her in a plastic bag. Dosha was then transported to the dog pound into a freezer. Dosha was finally found by a worker alive in the freezer. The bullet barely missed her brain and was stuck in Dosha’s skull. The bullet was recovered and her hypothermia was also treated. Apart from some hearing loss in her right ear, Dosha was fine she was dubbed as the luckiest dog in the world by Guinness.
5. Largest Object Removed From a Human Skull:

How would you feel if your hiccup attacks went on for 68 years continuously? Well, Charles Osborne started hiccuping in 1922 and finally stopped in 1990. The hiccups began when Osborne was weighing a hog, sometimes he hiccuped around 40 times per minute in the early years. In the later years, the attacks slowed down to 20 hiccups per minute. The hiccups were caused by a busted blood vessel damaging a part of the brain that inhibits the hiccup response.
