For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of a hitchhiker’s guide, or who do not understand sarcasm, the primary purpose of this website is humor or parody. While the information here can and should be informative, it should also be taken with a rather large grain of salt.

    Should you find anything in The Guide that you disagree with or in fact know to be false, please do remember the golden rule first laid out in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.”

Can you catch 29 ping pong balls on your shaving-cream-filled head?

EARTH — It should be no surprise that the inhabitants of the planet Earth have obscure amusements. They do after all occupy an obscure planet in an obscure solar system in an obscure section just at the outskirts of the galaxy.

It isn’t uncommon for Earth men to create unknown and obscure hobbies — usually dreamt up whilst at a bar or a frat party where some of the planet’s finest alcohol is said to be flowing — and then attempt to set records for those hobbies.

Such is the case for two Earth men in the state of Idaho in the United States. According to UPI, they set a world record for the most ping pong balls caught on one’s shaving-cream-covered head in 30 seconds.

They set a new record by catching 29 balls in this bizarre manner. So, if you’d like to break that record, you just need a mountain of shaving cream and at least 30 ping pong balls.

Oh, and there’s a video if you’d like to see this in action.

WHAT IS EARTH NEWS?: Some of the strangest news in the galaxy can be found on the planet Earth. This is due largely in part to the fact that Earth men and women live their lives isolated from the rest of galactic society. Earth News highlights some of humanities strangest and most bizarre exploits.
