It sure is right to say that the world is full of strange people and Ukranian guy, Valery Smagly can testify to that!
The 58-year-old Valery Smagly says, plenty of women cannot help but get jealous of his seductive eyelashes. However, some people say, his eyelashes are just plain CREEPY.
Well, this guy believes that he has the world’s bushiest eyelashes, a trait that he attributes to a secret ingredient in his diet. Valery Smagly says that they started growing when he added a wondrous ingredient to his food. Although many would want to know what this ingredient is, he insists on keeping it a secret.
Women would stop me in the street and ask me what the secret was, they can see that they are real and not fake. And whether it’s man or woman, most people don’t seem to pay much attention when I’m talking to them because they’re always looking at my eyelashes.” as Smagly told the press in a recent interview.
But for the time being, Valery Smagly’s eyelashes are not officially the absolute longest and bushiest in the world. On the contrary, the record is held by a man named Stuart Miller and his 6.99-centimeter (2.75-inch) eye whiskers.
Valery Smagly promises that he will visit the local Guinness Book of Records registry office in Ukraine soon enough and will try to set the record straight by having somebody officially measure his eyelashes.
On the other hand, Smagly claims that, even if they are not yet the longest in the world, he will not let them grow any longer. This is because they are already hurting his eyes and affecting his sight. But the trimming will put to act after he registers for the Guinness Book of Records.
I suppose I could go for the world record, but to be honest, what’s the point? I prefer to be able to see better and I plan to get them cut in a professional salon so I reckon they will still look pretty good afterwards.”
