Congratulations?: Man Sets New Record For Number Of Blowtorches Extinguished With Tongue In 1 Minute

May 19, 2016


This is a video of Ashrita Furman setting the Guinness World Record for most blowtorches extinguished with the tongue in one minute. He does 47. How the hell was the record not 1 and a trip to the emergency room? This is the second time Ashrita has held this record because, amazingly, there's somebody else out there crazy enough to do this shit too. Ashrita is a Guinness World Record seeker, has set over 500 records since 1979, and currently holds over 200. The majority of which are presumably a case of 'If you're the only person in the world who does something, you're #1 at it. Extinguishing blow torches with your tongue, you're sick and I hope you get the help you need.

Keep going for the record-breaking video.

Thanks to Miles, who I would walk 500 of, then 500 more just to be the man that walked 1,000 miles to fall down at your door because I'm not in shape and had a heart attack.

    but why

    I just want to know how about the 1st time he did it and how that came about - because I am willing to bet liquor was involved.

  • roehlstation

    I just assumed 1 would be the record

  • Mike Powers

    I like the fact that all of the ones he has extinguished are just spewing out propane...

    This man's talented tongue can keep a very specific type of lady well pleased!

  • Brandon

    A red head? Fire Crotch?

  • One who is on fire?

  • Bling Nye

    Should probably see a doctor about that.

  • TheQiwiMan

    (The type that shoots flames out their hoo-hoos)

  • Bling Nye

    Yeah, should reeaaally see a doctor about that.

    Chlamydigonoherpesyphilaids ain't no joke.
