Three minutes. 180 seconds. What can you actually do in that amount of time? You could boil the kettle, listen to a pop song or you could read this entire blog post…
Three minutes. 180 seconds. It may not seem like a long time, but there is A LOT you can achieve in such a short period of time.
We’ve looked at some of the most unbelievable things people have achieved in this timeframe, and, as it turns out, there have been some very interesting world records broken.
Get ready to be inspired:
1) Take 134 selfies!
That’s exactly what Footballer, Alan Shearer did in April 2017 when he broke the Guinness World Record for “number of selfies taken in three minutes” at Newcastle School for Boys. You might not expect a footballer to be the prime candidate for record-breaking selfies, but Shearer’s not afraid of a challenge and stepped up to raise awareness and funds for The Alan Shearer Foundation by taking 134 photos of his own face!
2) Eat A LOT of chicken nuggets!
746 grams worth to be precise. That’s the world record amount of chicken nuggets eaten by Thomas Welborn in London in June 2017. We’re not sure exactly how many that is but we reckon it’s somewhere between 45 and 50, let’s hope he had some ketchup nearby!
3) Go nuts for doughnuts!
In May 2017 Kevin “L.A. Beast” Strahle broke the world record for eating the most powdered sugar doughnuts in three minutes when he managed to chow down on a total of nine! He’s not known as the ‘LA Beast’ for nothing.
4) See the a-peel of oranges
Dinesh Upadhyaya from India holds the record for peeling and eating the most oranges in three minutes when he managed to get through seven in January 2017. That’s one way to try and get five-a-day.
5) Get picky about beans
If you fancy something a little more challenging, you could attempt to break the world record for most baked beans eaten with a cocktail stick in three minutes, but you’d have to beat David Houchin who managed 166 in January 2016. Perfect for when you just can’t find a fork.
6. Discover your hidden talents
It’s always good to push the boundaries, and that’s exactly what Ashrita Furman did in 2013 when he inflated 28 balloons using his nose in just three minutes! What a party trick.
