Maci Currin always knew she was tall but never expected to break two world records with her long limbs. The 6-foot-10-inch teenager submitted herself to Guinness World Records as a joke. No one was more surprised than her when Maci broke two world records.
The World’s Longest Legs
Maci submitted to try and break this world record as a joke. She recently set two records for both the teenager and woman with the longest legs in the world. Her right leg stretches 52.87 inches long, while her left leg stretches 53.25 inches.
Maci had her legs measured by her doctor three different times, and the measurements were submitted as proof to Guinness, which sent her a certificate and a congratulatory email confirming she was, indeed, the new record holder.
Maci states that being tall is probably the greatest gift. She lives in Cedar Park, Texas. Embracing this is the right thing to do it because Maci will not get any shorter.
Maci Currin says she has been taller than her peers for her entire life. However, this is not something that really stood out to her as a child, until she hit second grade, and other kids in school began to notice too.
Maci Has 2 Million Followers on TikTok
Maci says that her friends and family are incredibly supportive now; though, she endured taunts as a child from bullies who called her daddy long legs and a giraffe. Maci now claims that people were joking around, describing her as the CEO of giraffes, and she turned every negative comment around into a positive thing. It definitely hurt her, but Maci was surrounded by a lot of friends that helped her get past it. With a solid support system by her side, Maci also shrugs off snide comments by getting in on the jokes on her popular TikTok account, which has nearly two million followers.
Maci Currin believes that everyone is unique and people should embrace their uniqueness instead of hiding it because they might find other people who look like them, and this is inspiring.
This Man Has Been Mowing Senior Citizens’ Lawns For Free
A lot of people have found themselves out of a job this year because of the ongoing crisis. Brian Schwartz is one such person. Fortunately for him, he’s found a way to not only keep himself busy during his unemployment but also offer help to those who need it most.
Out Of Work
Before this year, Schwartz was the Vice President of a digital advertising agency. However, when 2020 arrived and started causing problems for everyone, his company took a big hit. As a result, he ended up being laid off in the summer, a situation that many people can, unfortunately, relate to. Now with a lot more time on his hands, Brian needed to find something to do with himself when he wasn’t looking for work. That’s when he had an amazing and selfless idea.
Lawns Need Mowing
Schwartz was inspired to set up a website offering free lawn mowing to those who needed it. His services were aimed at people 65 and over who perhaps couldn’t manage such a responsibility by themselves. The website proved to be a hit, and it wasn’t long before Brian was keeping busy cutting people’s grass. Well, if someone was offering free labor, why wouldn’t you take them up on their offer?
Given he’d been laid off, Schwartz probably could have done with being paid for his services. However, he wasn’t interested in charging the senior citizens, given they were already suffering enough. Brian is a firm believer in karma, and he’s confident that by doing good, things will pay off for him eventually. He’s just glad to be following his heart.
If Schwartz’s work is making both him and his customers happy, then more power to him. We hope that he’ll find a new job soon, and if not, maybe he can create a business out of his voluntary work. He already has people offering to help him out.
