Chinese beekeeper sets world record for being covered in bees

Saturday May 17th, 2014

Chinese beekeeper Ruan Liangming set a new world record this past Wednesday, allowing himself to be coated in bees for a whopping 53 minutes and 34 seconds.

Liangming, who wasn't even stung during the stunt, shattered the old mark by over 30 minutes. He is now the owner of multiple bee-related world records, having set the mark for wearing the heaviest mantle of bees (136 pounds) a few years ago.

For those of you without apiphobia, there's a video of Liangming's endurance stunt below. Man, if only there was a Nicolas Cage meme that fit this post.
