Youngest Ever !!!

Youngest Ever Records:

Lina Medina (born September 27, 1933) is the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, giving birth at the age of 5 years, 7 months and 21 days.

Tong Liangliang, a TWO-YEAR-OLD boy from the city of Tianjin in China is the world's youngest smoker.

In 1996, 7-year-old Jessica Dubroff died along with her father and a flight instructor when her plane crashed in Cheyenne, Wyoming, as she attempted to become the youngest person to fly coast-to-coast in the United States.
Jessica Dubroff was murdered for the camera.

A Nepalese boy, Temba Tsheri, lost five fingers to frostbite in an aborted attempt to climb Everest in 2000. A year later at 16, he became the youngest climber at the time to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain.

In India, where breaking records is a national obsession, a 4-year-old boy, Budhia Singh, became a national celebrity when he attempted to run a 70-kilometer (43-mile) marathon in May 2006. His coach was later charged with torturing the child after Singh's mother said she discovered scars on her son's body.

There should be an adult record for greatest lapse in judgment ever by a parent.

HERE,HERE, Well said Gord
C
ouldn't agree more,
What gets me on most of these sailing record breakers is that most want everybody else to pay for their trips, just look at all the sponsorship decals and the begging for money on their websites....
