10 of the Strongest Things in the World

Posted on Other Stuff 631

We are told to be strong and get strong. We want strong coffee, and if we want to succeed we need a strong personality. Weight-lifters are strong, as are power-ties. This list gives attention to some other things with major strength, some of them more specific than others. You may be surprised at some of the strong things that made this list, so sit back, relax, and check out…

1. Graphene

1. Graphene

Scientists have proven graphene to be the strongest material on Earth through testing. It has been heat and diamond tested, and they have even stretched a piece of it over a coffee cup and attempted to puncture it with a pencil. They say the material could support the weight of an automobile balanced on top of a pencil!

2. Strongest Vagina

2. Strongest Vagina

Tatiata Kozhevnikova, a 42-year old Russian woman, has broken records for the strength of her vagina. She has lifted more than 30 pounds with it, and claims she achieved this strength by exercising her vaginal muscles regularly using wooden balls. She is entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for her ‘strength’.

3. Strongest Earthquake

3. Strongest Earthquake

The strongest recorded earthquake which has ever occurred took place in Valdivia, Chile in May of 1960. It measured in at 9.5 on the Richter Scale, took out countless buildings, and resulted in numerous subsequent tsunamis, some of which hit Hawaii, Japan, and even the Philippines. Other, smaller earthquakes occurred in the days following.

4. Strongest Finger

4. Strongest Finger

Fu Bingli, a master of Kung Fu, has been a student of the martial arts since he was 7-years old. 32 years later he has mastered his art to the point that he can literally stand upside-down on his index finger, which fully supports his weight. After doing 12 push-ups on that finger Bingli made the Guinness Book of World Records.

5. Strongest Beer

5. Strongest Beer

With 41% alcohol, ‘Sink the Bismarck’ is the strongest beer in the world. It is brewed by BrewDog Brewery of Scotland, and it has more alcohol in it that both whiskey and vodka! The same brewery makes ‘Tactical Nuclear Penguin’, another beer which has 32% alcohol in it.

6. Strongest Eyelids

6. Strongest Eyelids

This one is a bit gross, but it’s true. The eyelids belong to another Kung Fu master, Song Tao, who lifted almost 100 pounds of water using them. Tao claims he spent years sleeping with buttons under his eyelids so he could adjust to the feeling of them, and his ability to lift with them was taught to him by another Kung Fu master.

7. Strongest Bug

7. Strongest Bug

The dung beetle is the strongest insect on Earth, and is able to pull more than 1000 times its own weight. This is the same as if a human weighing in at 70 pounds were able to pull the weight equivalent of six ‘double-decker’ buses. Its strength helps defend itself and its mate from enemies, and scientists say it is so strong because it has an active sex life (?)!

8. Strongest Great-Grandmother

8. Strongest Great-Grandmother

Winifred Pristell, 70, lifts weights in competitions, and currently holds two world records for her strength. She can deadlift 250 pounds, and is able to bench press more than 176 pounds. She began lifting to get in shape when she was 40.

9. Strongest Girl

9. Strongest Girl

13-year old Varvara Akulova of the Ukraine is the strongest girl in the world. She began her sport when she was a mere four years of age, and proved to have a natural strength at that time: She could lift 220 pounds then! You can check out a documentary about the girl that was put out by The Discovery Channel. She only gains about four pounds a year, but at the same time she increases the weight she lifts by twenty-five pounds. Wow!

10. Strongest Tot

10. Strongest Tot

Liam Hoekstra is only three, and he looks like any normal toddler, but this boy is anything but! The boy from Roosevelt Park began waving a couple of 5-pound dumbbells around like they were nothing, and he can even do sit-ups in rapid succession. His strength is attributed to myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy which is a genetic condition. It has given him 40% more muscle mass than other children his age.
