A navel lint collection has landed an Australian man in the Guinness Book of World Records. Some say this librarian's collection from his belly button is unprecedented other might say this navel lint collection is just plain gross.
Graham Barker, a 45-year-old librarian says that he has been collecting lint from his own label for the last 26 years. That is 22.1 grams of lint, which he has carefully and religiously placed in three bottles.
What would make a then 19-year-old Barker start "harvesting fluff" from his belly button, everyday?
Barker claims the habit, which takes about 10 seconds a day, was formed out of boredom. "I noticed the lint in my navel and became curious as to how much of it one person can produce," he said. "I decided the only way to find out was to collect it for a while and see."
So, let's get this straight: You were laying there one morning picking lint out of your navel, you saw an empty jar, and said to yourself, 'I wonder how much of this stuff I can collect?' You developed a habit of picking your belly button every morning and now you have jars of the stuff.
He has sold three jars of fluff to a museum for an undisclosed amount.
This is just weird, and not nearly as exciting as getting into the Guinness Book of World Records for being something exciting like the shortest man in the world.
