We've been mourning the sad loss of 'Calvin and Hobbes' ever since cartoonist Bill Watterson stopped producing the beloved comic strip in 1995.

The Guinness World Records has named Amber Jacobs (aka DJ AJ) the youngest DJ on the airwaves. At the tender age of six, the precocious Amber is making headlines for sharing the music that she loves on air for listeners to enjoy and is already an internet sensation.
Okay. We get it, Red Bull -- you're EXTREME. They've certainly proved that point with their historic mission, which should be taking place today if weather holds.

"The song is characterized by its strongly addictive beats and lyrics, and is thus certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy." That's the description of this video on YouTube.

Remember when you always tried to solve those kid menu mazes, only to realize your eyes felt like they were permanently crossed afterwards? Well, 40-year-old cartoonist Joe Wos basically does that for fun, and now he's trying to turn his hobby into world record.
Can you imagine making use of three cans of hair spray every day? Kazuhiro Watanabe, a funky fashion designer from Japan sure can. To be honest, this guy doesn’t put that much product in his hair every single day, but when Guinness World Records gives him a call, and asks him to get ready for a photo shoot, he’s on the job, reading to show off his spectacular Mohawk.
