What are some categories no longer in “Guinness Book of World Records”? Do elephants have a good sense of smell? How tall is too tall for the military? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. The United States military has a maximum height cutoff. No one over 6-foot-8 can enlist. (The Balance)

2. The “Guinness Book of World Records” has discontinued some of its categories, including raw egg consumption, heaviest pet and most beers consumed in an hour. (Guinness World Records)

3. Elephants have more genes related to smell than any other animal studied so far. They have five times more scent genes than humans and twice as many as dogs. (LiveScience)

4. The dates 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12 all fall on the same day of the week, every year. (LiveScience)

5. Adolf Hitler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1939. But the prize ended up not being awarded to anyone, because World War Two broke out. You know, because of Hitler. (Nobel Prize)
