World's Longest Nipple Hair

Sheesh! Some people will do anything to get into the Guiness World Records Book, 2006 Edition.

Tyler Ing, a Western Ontario engineering student, has won a place in World Book history by growing the longest nipple hair in the world. It measures 3.5 inches long, is jet black, and by all accounts, is pretty gross looking.

"There are a few contenders on me, but that's the longest one," said Ing, 20 years old.

It's tough for me to see people growing nipple hairs as contenders.

Tyler is also a hockey player for his school (isn't everyone that goes to Western Ontario?) and apparently got harassed quite a bit from his teammates. A few of his buddies would tease and joke that he needed to get his nipple hair into the Guiness World Records, and that's exactly what he did back in 2004.

What does his girlfriend think about all of this? Well, she suggested he contact the Guiness people as well. Isn't it great to have support from the one you love? I hope she's not going for any fantasitc follicle world record too. And his parents?

Tyler said that his parents "looked at me real weird for a few minutes. Now they're proud. My mom shows the book to all her friends."

If I grew the longest nipple hair in the world, my mother would go to Border's and burn every 2006 Edition Guiness book she could find. Then she's buy me a hair trimmer.

Here are just a couple other bizarre and hairy World Records:

World's Longest Female Beard: Vivian Wheeler of Wood River, IL...This mother of three grew a beard after the death of her mother in 1990. Not sure why. I guess it's some sort of memorial for her mother??? Her beard measures 11 inches.

World's Longest Ear Hair: Radhakant Bajpai of Naya Ganj, Uttar Pradesh, India...OK, so maybe this is much more gross than a nipple hair record. His ear hair begins in the center of his ears and measures 5.2 inches! In his picture, it looks like he has a poofy mullet.

World's Hairiest Man: Yu Zhenhuan of China...This guy has hair covering 96% of his entire EVERYWHERE except for the palms of his hands and soles of his feet. The hair got so long, that it went into his ear and actually gave him partial hearing loss! Here's a number for you...he's got 41 hairs per square centimeter of his body.

Suddenly, I have this strong urge to shave....have a great weekend!

I think the freakiest is the ear hair. He looks WAY too proud of it in his professionally taken portrait.

Nasty! Those pictures... yech. One word: WAXING! (I swear by it.) Though I do feel pretty bad for the world's hairiest guy... that's just too much hair for anyone to handle.

Only a guy would show off his freakish nipple hair.

Can you imagine that last guy pulling out a nose hair? He'd bleed to death!

The guy with the ear hair looks like he got his portrait done at Glamour Shots, doesn't it?

The hairy guy from China did have some sort of hair removal laser surgery done...but I think it was to alleviate the pressure on his eardrums and eyes.

the weirdgirl: "Only a guy would show off his freakish nipple hair." True...but I seriously feel for any woman who has the same problem as this guy. Nipple hair of any length on women = bad juju.

i'm glad its only his nipple hair that is 3.5 inches long, or that would be scary.

That's so sick. Wow. Facinating but disgusting. Bleh. And I thought the occasional back hair you see on people at water parks was gross...

My hubby is bald. I like bald heads. I think they're sexy. But the man has long black and gray hair covering every other part of his body. When we were first dating I wasn't so sure about whether or not I could ever get used to it. I did.

My name is jimmy an i thought id let you no that my nipples hairs at the moment have been cut as my girlfriend thinks they are disgusting and makes me get rid. All my friends think i should go in for the guiness record as at the moment they are an inch and a half still growing but previous i grew them just off four inch. I can't believe there is someone else with the same gift as i thought people would find it grotesque but personaly i find it quite ammusing and find it very funny when showing them just to the expression on others faces it works wonders when wanting to put peolpe off there food.

This is whats wrong with the world. Some retard decides to let his nipple hair grow out several inches and some other retards decide to publish it...this encourages other retards to at age 15 dedicate their lives to growing their nipple hairs longer just so they can say that they are the longest nipple haired retard in the world. The guiness book should stick to records that people actually care about. For example, I saw that guy running through the glass with football pads on...i think they should name this book guiness book of retards. And lastly someone should shoot the indian man with the long ear hair...realize that the hair had to be growing for quit a long time and him just being too lazy to cut it before he decided he could get fame out of it. He now thanks god for his "gift". And this is the country that is taking American jobs? Really...what does that say about Americans?

How do you dedicate your life to growing nipple hair?!?!?!? There is no dedication in growing hair! My nipple hair is almost 3 inches and I shave it about every 6 months. I dont really care what people think so thats why I dont shave it more often.
