Children in the Chilean capital, Santiago, claimed a new world record on Saturday. With a little help from adults and a large crane, they spent three days building what’s claimed to be the world’s tallest LEGO tower using interlocking plastic LEGO bricks. The organisers said the structure topped the previous record of 30.76 metres (101 feet), set last August in Duisberg, Germany, by about a fraction of a metre at 31 metres (101 feet, 8 inches).
Guinness World Records says Giant George from Tucson is Tallest Living Dog & Tallest Dog Ever. Giant George weighing in at over 245 pounds and standing over 43 inches tall. Blue Great Dane from Arizona gives new meaning to the term “big dog.” Giant George stands 3 feet, 7 inches tall from paw to shoulder, which is three-quarters of an inch taller than his closest rival — Titan, a white Great Dane from San Diego.
