Alongside the greatest achievements of the Human race sit some of the daftest things ever done to break records.
We have made the first flight, developed vaccines to eradicate disease, landed men on the Moon, climbed Mount Everest and built the pyramids.
Today though I featured what I think could be the daftest and most pointless achievement ever recorded!
A man became the first person of the 21st century — and the fourth person overall — to use a contraption attached to his nose to push a peanut up a mountain. A feat that took him 7 days!
The City of Manitou Springs said Bob Salem began pushing the peanut up the mountain at 9 a.m. on July 9 and reached the top in a 10 a.m. ceremony July 15.
Salem attempted the unusual feat as part of Manitou Springs’ 150 Year Celebration.
City officials said Salem was the fourth person to ever complete the task, and the first person of the 21st century. They said his 7-day journey broke the record of eight days, which was set by Ulysses Baxter in 1963.
