gata only copied what was listed.

The book is published late in the previous year. The oldest woman died already.

gata does a great, thorough job on posts and is very helpful!

Personally, I liked the idiot whose arm exploded and he died on a gurney.

Some questions: how comes they didn't remove the references to him from the official Guinness World Records 2013 Edition?

It was issued on 11 September 2012 in USA and Canada and on 15 September 2012 worldwide; did they expose him after these dates? And, if yes, is there any news neporting it (link)?
On their website they won't publish all the 4,000 records, and anyway the website doesn't matter: the book does, and the man is there, as you can see.

Re: Guinness World Records 2013

Isn't this the Mayan calendar?

I could never have that many piercings. I went back to one when people did multiples and I clean my ears and earrings every time I put them in and they have been triple pierced for 25 years.
