Weird News Central: Unbreakable Guinness Records

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Anyone know a babe that’s smaller than a newborn baby?

If you’re looking for Guinness World Records that’ll never be broken look no further than Lucia Zarate, the lightest woman ever, who once weighed just 4.7 pounds.

Even at her fattest, the 21.5-inch-tall Mexican “Lilliputian” tipped the scales at no more than 13 pounds – and her record, set in 1889, might stand forever.

America Online’s Senior Correspondent Buck Wolf polled sideshow historians and top Guinness editors for a list of records they’re fairly certain will never be broken.

Topping the list is Robert Wadlow, the world’s tallest man ever. The 8-foot-11 giant died in 1940, but if he were around today he’d be 17 inches taller than Yao Ming and 10 inches taller than Sultan Kosen, the tallest man alive.

Also earning honors: Countess Elizabeth Bathory, the world’s most prolific murderess, who allegedly killed more than 600 virgins and bathed in their blood.
