Hairiest teenager
The hairiest teenager is Supatra "Nat" Sasuphan (Thailand) according to the Ferriman Gallwey method of evaluation of Hirsutism. She was measured on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Rome, Italy, on 4 March 2010.
Meeting Nat was one of the many highlights of the show for on-screen adjudicator, Marco Frigatti. "She's a remarkable little girl," says Marco. "She's proud of who she is and wants to be treated just like everyone else. She's not the one with the problem - it's only those who treat her differently who've got the problem."

And Nat agrees. "I don't feel any different to anyone else, and I've got lots of friends at school." Now a celebrity, she's starting to enjoy her fame, and was thrilled by the chance to visit a foreign country. "It's really fun and exciting," she told us, "and it's my first time on a plane. I've never been outside Thailand." But her most exciting experience was the moment she was crowned Hairiest Child. "Being hairy makes me special," she said, adding: "This the happiest day of my life!"

Smallest dog living
The smallest dog living, in terms of height, is a female Chihuahua called Miracle Milly, who measured 9.65 cm (3.8 in) tall on 21 February 2013 and is owned by Vanesa Semler of Dorado, Puerto Rico.
Pocket-sized pets remain one of the most fascinating areas of the Guinness World Records database, with petite dogs arguably the most popular of all our animal records.
Guinness World Records currently has two main categories for petite pooches: Smallest dog living (height) and Smallest dog living (length).
Born in December 2011, she weighs roughly 1 pound (half a kilogram) and is known for often sticking out her tiny tongue when someone takes her picture. "She knows how to pose," says Vanesa.
"People are amazed when they see her because she is so small, and she has a big personality. People love her."
When she was born, Miracle Milly weighed less than an ounce and fit in a teaspoon, Semler said. Her mouth was too tiny to nurse from her mother, so Semler gave her milk every two hours through an eyedropper.
She slept in a doll's crib next to Semler's bed, growing stronger as the months passed.
The Chihuahua now sleeps in a baby's crib and will eat nothing but food cooked by humans.
Miracle Milly dethroned previous title-holder Boo Boo, pictured below, a long-haired female Chihuahua, owned by Lana Elswick of Raceland, Kentucky, USA, who stands at just 10.16 cm (4 in).

Can you squirt your tears and not make them roll down your cheeks when they fall? Can you keep your fingernails for just one year? Let's see how that won't be called "amazing" if you can!

Bryan Berg, a world-record card stacker, sits on a
bed made of card keys inside the model hotel which
is constructed from card keys at the South Street
Seaport on September 17, 2009 in New York. The
human-scale 400-square-foot model is made of
200,000 card keys and includes a lobby, bedroom
and life-size furnishings. Though there's no Guinness record for a hotel made of cards, this is still pretty impressive.
