First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism
The official world record for longest fingernails on a female is 28 feet, 4.5 inches TOTAL, for all ten fingers. An image of the longest fingernails can be found at this link, click here.
There is, however, a woman in North Minneapolis named Diane (last name unknown to this blogger) who has been sighted, repeatedly, with fingernails that appear equal to or possibly exceeding the world record. Photos taken from some distance away have been published, repeatedly, on North Minneapolis Facebook forums but the image above is the first "voluntary" photo coming to this blogger's attention.
Here, word-for-word, is the account provided by a "Facebook journalist" on North Vent...
I asked her lots of questions, but asked if I could first. She was very nice. She said she's grown them for 14 years. Keeps acrylic powder on them to hold the weight and keep them from tearing. Hers are 32 inches. Said the last record was 30 inches. I asked if she has contacted Guinness and she said no, when I asked why, she said she was too ashamed. That took me back for a minute. She said her grand kids paint them. I asked the guy she was with if she gave good back scratches and he laughed and then said nooooo ma'am! I'm still in shock! They are the thickness of a c battery and very bumpy (hell no I didn't touch them!).
The guy said he does everything for her, but I saw her use her knuckle to get a $5 bill from her wallet. Mind blown!
It is the belief of JNS blog that if a world record has fallen, Guinness should be notified and North Minneapolis should get the credit we deserve...
Bizarre and dubious credit though it may be.
