Seatbelts save lives... and prevent broken fingernails, too. An apparently unbelted Lee Redmond was ejected from her SUV during an accident earlier this week. While the noteworthy Utah resident somehow survived the crash, her record-setting fingernails didn't fare as well. The Guinness Book of World Records-certified growths (yeah, they are more than a bit grotesque) were all broken, apparently leaving Redmond rather stumped.
As she recovers in the hospital from her injuries it would be wise to ponder the case of Shridhar Chillal. The previous record fingernail holder from India cut his own nails off in search of a more normal life several years ago. However, he was so emotionally distressed afterward that he had them glued back on. Apparently, when it comes to fingernails, there's nothing that a bit of super glue can't fix!

      This was obviously an act of kindness.

      It's a sign from God to get a normal life, Ms Redmond. Those stares from people on the streets aren't of envy or awe, if you must know.

        It's called arthritis, and most likely has nothing to do with her nails.

        I wonder if her clipped nails will be covered under the Firestone SUV Tire recall?

      If you think she's disgusting, try looking at a picture of a man with the longest nails.

      Probably for the same reason that someone gains celebrity status because she has a big ass and attitude.

      Everyone has already said what I wanted to say. Ma'am, your nails may be record-breaking, but that's not a good thing.
