World's Tallest Mohawk

Japanese designer Kazuhiro Watanabe did not just break the record for the world's tallest mohawk - he shattered it, with his 3-foot, 8.6 inch tower that was 13.11 inches taller than existing record holder Stefan Srocka's. The patient man who used three cans of hairspray and one large bottle of gel to keep his masterpiece afloat, has been growing his hair for 15 years to achieve his goal. 

World's Tallest Dog

Zeus isn't just any Great Dane -- he's the greatest of them all. At 44 inches tall, Zeus is the tallest dog in the world today, and one of the stars of the 2013 edition of Guinness World Records. That makes him a full inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George, who I had the pleasure of meeting here in New York last year.

World's Tallest Donkey

Here's Oklahoma Sam, a 4-year-old American Mammoth Jackstock who's not like any of the other Jackstock around -- because Sam is the tallest donkey in the world. Sam stands 15.3 hands high, or, at 5'1" tall, nearly as tall as me.  That means this Jackstock is no laughingstock -- he's one of the newest members of Guinness World Records, and one of the animals in the 2013 edition of the book.

Lighthouse of Alexandria

The Lighthouse of Alexandria, sometimes called the Pharos of Alexandria (in Ancient Greek), was a lofty tower built by the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 280 and 247 BC on the coastal island of Pharos at Alexandria, Egypt for the purpose of guiding sailors into the port. With a height variously estimated at somewhere between 393 and 450 ft (120 and 140 m), it was one of the tallest man-made structures on Earth for many centuries, and was regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Badly damaged by three earthquakes between 956 and 1323, it then became an abandoned ruin. It was the third longest surviving ancient wonder (after the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and the still extant Great Pyramid of Giza) until in 1480 the last of its remnant stones were used to build the Citadel of Qaitbay on the site. In 1994, French archeologists discovered some remains of the lighthouse on the floor of Alexandria's Eastern Harbour.
The Colossus of Rhodes (Greek) was a statue of the Greek Titan Helios, erected in the city of Rhodes on the Greek island of Rhodes by Chares of Lindos between 292 and 280 BC. It is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was constructed to celebrate Rhodes' victory over the ruler of Cyprus, Antigonus I Monophthalmus, whose son unsuccessfully besieged Rhodes in 305 BC. Before its destruction in the earthquake of 226 BC, the Colossus of Rhodes stood over 30 meters (98.4 ft) high,[1] making it one of the tallest statues of the ancient world.
