Just when you thought there might be something out there left for you to accomplish in this world, one thing to make your name live on long after your death — long after its last spoken by those who truly knew and loved you in this life, one thing to make living this life feel WORTH IT, for ONCE, it looks like Polish architect Jakub Szczesny has gone and grabbed your dreams right out from under you. Of course. Ain’t that the way. You know that dream you had about building the world’s thinnest house that seems pretty much completely unlivable and makes you nervous just by watching a video of actual humans moving around inside of it? Well Szczesny already did it, and he did it 3-foot-wide gap between two buildings, which you have to admit is much thinner than you would’ve ever even attempted because WHO BUILDS A 3-FOOT WIDE HOME TO LIVE IN? Other than a very wealthy little bug? ?! Luckily for you, I think there are still a few other goals up for grabs:

  • World’s thinnest bowl of cereal.
  • World’s best dinner.
  • World’s funnest birthday without spending any money.
  • World’s longest-lasting carved pumpkin.
  • World’s thickest piece of paper.
  • World’s most comfortable pair of pants you can and should wear outside.
  • World’s best tweet.
  • World’s most mediocre singing voice.
  • World’s worst genuinely collected book collection.
  • World’s smallest t-shirt.
  • World’s biggest smallest.
  • World’s intentionally meanest baby.

  1. How much money did Videogum get for this number:



    • Yikes! That was supposed to be the ad to the right of the page that said “I will never apologize for America.” -Mitt Romney

      Anyway, you get the point. It was my understanding that although completely unbiased, this website leans toward the left.

  2. With 10.5 billion people in the world by 2050 we will be lucky to even have a three-foot-wide house. Or cereal.

  3. The world’s THINNEST anorexic!

  4. Most Sand

  5. the most evil republican!

    • To mimic World’s intentionally meanest baby – World’s intentionally most evil Republican!

      (Side-note: Can babies have intent? Can Republicans have intent NOT to be evil?)

  6. The world’s straightest straight dude. Brickin’ my back door up like I got a cask of amontillado inside.

  7. The Worst Movie of All Time

  8. World’s most dapper cravat.

  9. How do we calculate the amount of money spent on our birthday? If I just sit at home by myself and drink all of the beer in my fridge (which is pretty much filled with just beer), does that count as spending money on my birthday? What if I bought all the beer long before my birthday? These records are way too open to rules interpretation.

  10. That narrator sounds like a dick

  11. Check this out, thin houses were a real thing in olden times! There’s one in Boston called the Skinny House (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skinny_House_%28Boston%29) and it’s in the category of “Spite House”, whose entry on Wikipedia includes structures like Spite Fences! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spite_house).

    Spite Houses! Passive-aggressive architecture, you guys! Get back at someone you hate by being a daily irritant!
