Meet Tatiata Kozhevnikova, the 42-year-old Russian woman with the world's strongest vagina. No, seriously, she broke records to attain that title. Incredibly enough, she lifted 14 kilograms worth of weights-- almost 31 pounds-- to achieve such notoriety. She has been exercising her intimate muscles for fifteen years, and has already made her entrance into the Guinness Book of Records as the possessor of the world's strongest vagina. “After I had a child, my intimate muscles got unbelievably weak. I read books on Dao and learned that ancient women used to deal with this problem using wooden balls,” she said.
World's Strongest Finger: Fu Bingli (12 full pushups with one finger)
The strongest fingers on the planet belong to a kung fu master Fu Bingli. Since the age of 7 the Chinese master has been studying martial arts and today, after 32 years, he can stand upside down on just one index finger. He was officially registered in the Guinness Records Book after completing 12 press ups on just one finger.
World's Strongest Eyelids: Song Tao (lift 100 lbs)
A blinking marvel kung-fu master can lift huge buckets of water by buttoning them to his eyelids. Black belt Song Tao places the buttons – connected to lengths of rope – under his eyelids and simply by closing his eyes he can lift nearly 100lbs of water. Song of Dongying, eastern China, said: "I spent years just getting used to the feel of the buttons under my eyelids. I would sleep with them there. "I was taught by another master who could lift even more than I do. I try to focus on the beauty of lifting and forget about the pain."
But Song fears the skill may die out with him. He said: "I've tried several pupils but they all find the training too hard and too painful."
Meet 70-year- old Winifred Pristell. This great-grandma they call "Heavy Metal" is a competitive weightlifter with two world records and aspirations for more. Winifred first took up the sport in her late 40's due to her struggles with her weight. When she turned 60 she started to lift competitively in powerlifting meets. At 68, she set world records for her age in the bench press at 176.2 pounds and 270 pounds in the deadlift. Even though she has been struggling lately with arthritis and joint issues, at 70 Winifred still works out three days a week.
World's Strongest Toddler: Liam Hoekstra (has 40% more muscle than kids his age)
Three-year-old Liam Hoekstra of Roosevelt Park looks like your average toddler, but looks can be deceiving. The Roosevelt Park boy doesn't have any obvious physical attributes that set him apart from other tots and he behaves like many children his age. But when Liam picks up two five-pound dumbbells and waves them around like stuffed animals, or does rapid-fire sit-ups, it becomes abundantly clear that he has an extraordinary gift. Liam's amazing strength, the result of a rare genetic condition called myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy, has made him something of a global media darling. He has 40 percent more muscle mass than typical 3-year-olds.
World's Strongest Girl: Varvara Akulova (lifts over 250 lbs)
Meet Varvara Akulova, the world's strongest girl. She already was a champion at the age of four and expressed unbelievable strength. The 13-year-old girl came from a very poor family from Ukraine, they were always short on food and basic things - but nevertheless she started doing sports at very early age and at the age of four she could lift 220 lbs weights! It was so fantastic that The Discovery channel made a documentary about her - “The World's Strongest Girl.” Since then each year her personal weight grew by 2 lbs each year (2 kg a year) but her lifting power increased by 25 lbs (11 kg) each year.
Also called “Girl Hercules” she is now capable of lifting up to 350 kg, while she weighs only 40 kg. This fact has already been confirmed twice by Guinness Book of World Records. Varya's muscles are barely visible but she has tremendous will-power, translucent body and thread-like tendons. Varya says, “I wish I could be big, really big: 190 cm tall and weigh more than 100 kg, like my dad.” Despite the daily workouts, Varya is a top student in her class. Currently, she is in 7th grade.
World's Strongest Insect: Dung beetles (pull 1,141 times their weight)
A certain species of dung beetle has been crowned the world's strongest insect. A male Onthophagus taurus can pull 1,141 times its own body weight — the equivalent of a 70-kg (154-pound) person being able to lift 80 tonnes, the weight of six double-decker buses. That power comes in handy not just to roll up a few extra dung-balls, but also to protect mates and stave off potential rivals. Scientists explain that the beetle's amazing strength is connected to his sex life.
World's Strongest Beer: Sink the Bismarck (41% alcohol)
The flamboyantly competitive Scottish brewery BrewDog has released Sink the Bismarck!, a "quadruple IPA" that they say is the most alcoholic in the world at 41%. BrewDog had previously earned similar attention last year with their then-record-setting 32% ABV beer, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but rival brewery Schorschbrau just weeks ago (briefly) reclaimed the beer potency title with their Schorschbock, at 40% ABV, prompting Brewdog's latest counterattack. Sink the Bismarck!'s 41% ABV renders it's more alcoholic than whiskey or vodka, costs £40 for a 330ml bottle and it's only sold online.
NOTE: Since May 2010, Schorschbock claims to be the strongest beer with 43% of alcohol.

World's Strongest Earthquake: Valdivia, Chile (9.5 on the Richter Scale)
Valdivia is a beautiful city of approximately 130,000 people that is 841km to the south of Santiago in the "Region de los Lagos" of Chile (thanks Franco). At 3.40pm on 22 May 1960 Valdivia was hit by the strongest recorded earthquake in the world. The Earthquake measured 9.5 on the Richter Scale. Most of the buildings in the city were destroyed by the earth's movements or by the devastating tsunamis that followed. Not only were there catastrophic consequences in the South of Chile, the earthquake caused tsunamis that hit Japan (138 people killed), Hawaii (61 people killed) and the Philippines (32 people killed). At 3.11pm, a smaller earthquake was felt in the region and yet another 'smaller' earthquake of 7.5 the day before in Concepción a little to the north.
World's Strongest Known Material: Graphene
The scientific community has been praising graphene as some sort of miracle material for years now. Well, it can now add another statistic to its impressive resume now that researchers have confirmed it as the strongest material ever tested. Two engineering professors at Columbia University tested graphene's strength at an atomic level by indenting a perfect sample of the material with a sharp probe made of diamond. The results confirm what many had suspected all along—and that will go a long way to bolster the case that graphene would be able to handle the heat produced in future ultrafast processors. The scientists compare their test to stretching a piece of plastic wrap over the top of a coffee cup, and measuring the force that it takes to puncture it with a pencil. If they could get a large enough piece of the material to lay over the top of a coffee cup, graphene would be strong enough to support the weight of a car balanced atop the pencil.
