A Girl Who Can Lick Her Own Eye Might Set the Record For Longest Tongue

20-year-old Gerkary Blequett of Ocala, Florida might break the world record for longest tongue.

She says her tongue is 4.48 inches long.  The current world record is 3.97 inches, so if the people at the "Guinness Book of World Records" can verify her length, she'll smash the record by half an inch.

And it sure SEEMS like her tongue is that long.  She posted gifs online that show her touching her nose, touching her eye, touching her earlobe, and even licking her ELBOW, which is supposed to be impossible.  Seriously, try it.  (Click here to see her in action!)

 

A Teenager Hacks a Government Website to Get a Test Postponed

A 17-year-old kid in Sri Lanka was worried about a national standardized test he had to take earlier this week.  Apparently he had to do well to graduate.

So he hacked into the official website of the PRESIDENT of Sri Lanka over the weekend, and posted a message demanding that the president CANCEL the test . . . or he'd keep the website offline.

In other words, if this kid put even a FRACTION of the effort he puts into hacking into his STUDYING, he wouldn't have needed to hack the website in the first place.

The cops traced the hack to him on Monday, and arrested him.  So now he's facing a fine of $2,000 and up to three years in jail.  There's no word if he still had to take the test, or if getting arrested DID get him out of it. 

 

A Tomato Battle Leaves A Spanish Town Awash In Red Pulp

Yesterday, 2,000 people gathered in the streets of Bunol, Spain to take part in a giant food fight!

It was all a part of the annual "Tomatina" street battle, where thousands of people pelted each other with 160 tons of over-ripe tomatoes.

Most people were wearing swimming goggles to protect their eyes from the acidic juice of the tomatoes, so there were very few injuries.

The tomato battle lasted 4 hours and left the streets drenched with the red pulp of the tossed tomatoes.  But, the town has their act together.  Within minutes of the fight ending, organizers drove huge water trucks down the streets and hosed all of the tomatoes away. 

Participants cleaned up at public showers, then celebrated the rest of the night at the festival.
