After 66 Years, Man With World's Longest Fingernails Finally Cuts Them Off


Some people have a hard time parting from items close to them, such as clothes. For others getting a haircut is already a big deal. For this Indian man, cutting his fingernails was a deal breaker, so he let them grow for 66 years. Now he finally decided to cut them, according to The Patch New York.

Shridhar Chillal, of Pune in India, let his left-hand fingernails grow since the age of 14. He even got into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Before he got into the Guinness Book of World Records in November 2014, his nails measured 29 feet and 10 inches.

However, deciding to cut them wasn’t an easy decision, but a necessary one.
