Who doesn’t love a refreshing slice of watermelon on a hot summer day? If you are anything like Ashirta Furman, you cut them on your stomach right? Yes, you did read that correctly.

Furman who resides in New York, has set over 600 Guniess World Records, 200 of them still stand to this day. His latest shot at glory came when he sliced 26 watermelons in half on his stomach, while using a sword. The truly amazing part was that he did this in just one minute.
Furman broke the record for running on stilts in the fastest time, pogo stick jumping underwater, hopscotch, brick carrying with one hand, milk bottle balancing on his head, glass balancing on his chin, grape catching in his mouth, lawnmower balancing on his chin, and a ton more
