    World’s Largest

    Post  RyanLiu on Wed Mar 10, 2010 12:26 am

    Ever heard of a gummy bear equivalent to 1,400 regular sized gummy bears or even a swimming pool the size of a swamp? Well those are just some of the record holders for largest [whatever they are] out there. This article will cover tidbits on some of the world’s largest, biggest, and most extreme things man has ever created.

    World’s Largest Gummy Bear: Most packs of gummy bears you see cost two dollars but why does this one gummy bear cost $29.95? Well for one thing it is the equivalent to 1,400 regular sized gummy bears and it contains 12,600 calories (which would be a problem for everyone except Michael Phelps). It weighs five pounds and is nine point five inches tall. Don’t feel the pressure of having to eat it in a week since it has a shelf life of a year.

    World’s Largest Burger: We’ve all seen does McDonald and Burger King commercials bragging that they’ve got the biggest half-pounder, but what about a 123-pounder? This colossal burger contains a whopping 80 pounds of beef, a 30 pound bin, 160 slices of cheese, 12 tomatoes, five onions and one pound of lettuce, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. It is made at the Pennsylvanian restaurant; Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub’s and costs $379.

    World’s Largest Piñata: This Piñata version of the Trojan horse is 28.5 meters long, 72 meters wide, and 18 meters tall. You might have thought a Piñata that size is too huge to be filled with candy, but somehow the creators of the Piñata got 8,000 pounds candy inside it. Instead of using the world’s largest baseball bat (which is 120 feet tall) to break the Piñata, the planners of the event just used a wreaking ball to smash its candy out.

    World’s Largest Crossword: How many have you done a crossword? Now how many of you have done a crossword 30 meters tall? The world’s largest crossword is so gigantic that it is placed on a residential tower block located in the Ukrainian city of Lvov. But where do tourists and citizens get the questions to solve the crossword? The questions are placed in different points in the city, such as theatres, monuments, statues, and other important locations. And you might be asking where you get the answers? The answers light up on the crossword each night.

    World’s Largest Swimming Pool: The deepest end of an average pool is 12 feet but in this case it is 115 feet. It took five years to build costing around 1.5 million dollars, and it takes nearly 3 million dollars for it’s nearly maintenance. The world’s largest pool is located in Chile’s southern coast in the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Algarrobo. The pool contains 66 million gallons of water, and in some parts of the pool it is even possible to use a boat. That’s one pool I sure wouldn’t want to take the Swim Survival test at.

    World’s Largest Foosball Table: What Foosball table is so big that two soccer teams (one soccer team = 11 athletes) could face of against each other. The world’s largest Foosball table was created by the Amsterdam brewer, Amstel, to promote the European Champions Soccer League Finals.

    World’s Largest Book: Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Kingdom is the largest published book in history. Michael Hawley, an author and scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology wrote the book. Bhutan contains 112 pages and is five by seven feet wide. It took a gallon of ink to print, and costs $2,000 to produce.

    Unlike Earth which is considered small to other planets, these gigantic creations are the largest out there. So go out there and solve a gigantic crossword puzzle or eat an enormous gummy bear (Don’t worry, you can burn off the calories swimming in the largest pool).
