World's longest fingernails finally cut off

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

They took 66 years to grow but only a couple of minutes to chop off. On Wednesday, Shridhar Chillal from Pune, India, who holds the Guinness World Record for the longest fingernails ever recorded on a single hand, finally cut his nails. Or rather, a technician wearing a face mask and wielding a power tool carefully removed them during a “nail clipping ceremony” in New York.

That must feel really weird for him now. He doesn't look very happy.

That's the tame version of what I first thought of posting! :lol:

ETA: I don't recall such outrage before. Remember those good ol' times before your recent absence?

I imagine he'll struggle to adapt to having no nails after almost 70 years.

Yes, and I wonder if he will gradually get the use of that hand back?

He'll have to start from scratch.

Wondering if we can "nail" down what his one handed profession is?

Instead of donating his nails to a museum, he should eat them! They are high in calcium and essential grit. :yes:

I wonder how he's getting on now; I seem to recall that when he cut the nails off the other hand it left him feeling rather glum!
