World's Longest Nails
Although Chillal is proud of his record breaking nails, he had increasing difficulties with their weight, which already caused his left fingers to become 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).
He finally cut off his nails in late 2000. However, he may make the odd appearance with his finger nails in tow. He appeared with his nails attached in the movie Jackass 2.5.

Wen Jian, 42, of Changle, Fujian province, says he was always getting into fights before he grew his nails. His longest nail is 35cm (14ins) long and prevents him from making his hand into a fist.
He is now better known for his nails than for fighting and has even opened a children's clothes shop, called Long Nail.
But his long nails have also brought Wen some inconveniences - he has to keep his left hand in a shoe box each night to prevent him from breaking off the nails in his sleep.
