A World Record by a Nose
In 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 a world record holder.
He also 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.
Once, for pushing a peanut to the top of Pike’s Peak with his nose.
A second time, 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.
“Tom Miller can bite me.”
