A World Record by a Nose

miller noseIn August of 1976, Tom Miller of the United States, spent 4 days, 23 hours, 47 minutes, and 3 seconds, pushing a peanut to the summit of Pike’s Peak, with his nose.

He set a new world record for pushing a peanut to the summit of Pike’s Peak with your nose and forever became known as “that weirdo who pushed a peanut to the top of Pike’s Peak with his nose.”

The Guinness Book of World Records took notice and recorded his feat not once, but twice.

#1 For pushing a peanut to the top of Pike’s Peak with his nose.

#2 For the biggest waste of 4 days, 23 hours, 47 minutes, and 3 seconds, in recorded history.

Tom Miller’s parents wept tears of joy…well, they wept a lot.

Tom Miller’s life would never be the same.

But few remember the other participant in this record-setting  journey and how he was left forever broken.

  1. I had to google this one… and now I’m ashamed of the time wasted and sorry that I ever doubted you. Also, apparently the previous record was TWENTY-ONE DAYS, which means that someone else was really into wasting time before ol’ Tom got on his hands and knees for Guinness.

  2. Tom Miller then went on to attempt to break the record for the largest collection of Salted Mixed Nuts only to die a penniless drifter on the mean streets of Dothan Alabama.
