MFS - Strange But True - People 12


Shridhar Chillal holds the world record for the longest fingernails ever reached on a single hand, measuring 6.15 meters (20 feet 2.25 inches). Chillal's longest nail is 4.25 feet. He started growing his nails in 1952.
Although Chillal is quite proud of his record breaking nails, he had increasing difficulties with their weight, which already caused his left fingers to become forever disfigured (and more or less useless).Due to nerve damage caused from the nails' immense weight, Chillal is permanently deaf in the left ear (for he grew his fingernails on his left hand).Read more about it on MFS,with videoclip.
