How fricking sad.
A 43-year-old North Country man has made the Guinness Book of World Records in a new entry for the longest eyebrow hair. Frank Ames of Saranac in Clinton County measured in at 3.078 inches, or about 7.8 centimeters. “I don’t know why it grows like that; it just always has,” Ames told the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh.
Ames’s journey toward notoriety began almost two years ago when a co-worker at Bombardier Corp. noticed the bushy brow and suggested he try for a record. Ames then decided to go for it, but discovered that no such category existed. So, he made a phone call to Guinness and was sent a bunch of forms to fill out and rules for officially getting recognized.
