Four of the Guinness World Records Held in Okinawa, Japan

Guinness World Records come and go because people around the globe are
CONSTANTLY TRYING TO BEAT THEM.
Take this Naha Tsunahiki (Tug O War) for example.
The thing weighs over 40 tons and is made out of all natural fibers.  Somebody in China might make a longer rope, get more people to tug on it, or even make one that's heavier.
But, I bet they can't afford to weave the required amount of rice straw, used in this rope, together to break the world record.  People would be starving to death.
Ain't that the stuff they use to make Kellogg's ® Rice Krispies ® ?
The Guinness World Record for the largest Taco, Rice, Cheese on the planet happens to be held by my hometown, Kin Cho Kin in Okinawa, Japan.
This worries me.  You just know somebody, somewhere is plotting to take the title away from us.
Probably some chefs in Mexico or Argentina are conspiring at this moment.
Don't hold your breath waiting. Because 746 kg is a lot of food to cook, all in one place.

NOW HERE'S ONE THAT REALLY HAS ME WORRIED !
In November of 2011 the island of Ishigaki Okinawa, Japan made the
GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the biggest kebab on Planet Earth !
They put together over 100 meters of Ishigaki beef on a metal rod and grilled it.
Guaranteed, folks in Turkey are going to try and break that record.
Don't they consider themselves the Kebab Capital of the World ?


The fourth and final Guinness World Record in Okinawa, Japan is this one held by an American.
Dennis Provencher, retired from the US Air Force, holds the
He has donated over 34 gallons (128+ liters) of his blood to help others in his lifetime.
This is the only Guinness World Record in Okinawa, Japan that I don't worry about.
If someone is plotting to take this record away, go ahead, I dare ya.
Here's what Dennis says: "I challenge anyone to catch me."
And to Dennis, I have to say:
Buddy, they just don't make people like you, anymore. 
And, I salute you.
