The Space Cowboy :Swallowing 18 swords.

An Australian performance artist set a new Guinness World Record by simultaneously swallowing 18 swords, each nearly as long as two-and-a-half rulers. Chayne Hultgren, also known by his stage name The Space Cowboy, beat the record he had set in 2008 by swallowing the swords, each 72 cm (28.35 inches) long, at an outdoor event in central Sydney, Australia.

The 31-year-old said he started practising with swords when he was 16 and has used different methods to perfect the art. He said that while the stunt was not dangerous, he spent many hours training for it.
