David Rush Sets the Weirdest World Records

In October of 2022, David Rush set the record for ‘Farthest Distance to Blow a Pea’. He took one big breath and used all the air in his body to blow a single green pea 84 feet and 11 inches. That was Rush’s 250th Guinness World Record and he has set others since then.
