Is it just me, or does it seem like the Guinness Book of World Records adds another category to their ever-growing list of achievements everyday? The latest record to find its way into the book was set in the Xinjiang region of China by Li Enhai. His accomplishment? World's thinnest noodle. Since the noodle is thinner than a human hair, Li (who is also known in China as "The Noodle King") demonstrated the fact that he could get 39 noodle strands through the eye of a needle. The needle is larger than your standard sewing needle, but still 39 strands? Those are some thin noodles... The wildest part is, not only can Li make them super thin, but he can make them quickly too. When Li demonstrated his skills for the officials, the noodle-making took less than 2 minutes. If you're curious to see Li in action, there's a video of the noodle demonstration online.
