The world's largest collections of quirky stuff, tallest and smallest everyday things, and people covered in tattoos and piercings certainly make appearances in this year's Guinness World Records.

Oh, and Justin Bieber also made it into the 2017 Edition. "What Do You Mean?" was streamed a dizzying 30,723,708 times in just 7 days making it the most streamed track on Spotify in one week.
