Mehmet Ozurek of Turkey, like eight or ten others, is a perfectly normal person. But there is something about his appearance that sets him apart from others. If you look closely, you can see that Mehmet’s nose is different from all others. Pretty long. And this feature has brought Mehmet to world record recognition. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest living male in the world is Mehmet from Turkey.
Mehmet has not only set a world record, he has held this record for two decades. According to the Guinness Book of World Records website, Mehmet’s nose was first measured in 2001. It can be seen that his nose is 7.8 centimeters or 3.46 inches long. That same year, he was recognized as the man with the longest nose in the world.
Many people think that the shape of the nose and ears of a person changes with age. These are bigger than before. Guinness World Records has measured Mehmet’s nose twice in the last two decades. First in 2010, once again this year. However, the truth of this idea was not found. Mehmet’s nose size has remained the same for the last two decades. Through this, he holds the record of the man with the longest nose in the world.
Mehmet’s sense of smell is greater than any other because of its long nose. “I can detect odors in places where other people don’t smell,” he said. I can even smell the smell as soon as I enter the house. ‘
Mehmet’s ancestors also had slightly larger noses than other humans. Speaking on a TV show in Italy in 2010, Mehmet said, “I was born with special physical characteristics. God has given me a bigger nose than others. A lot of times friends get mad at me for it. When you go to a public meeting, everyone looks around. A lot of times these reasons are just upset. However, I am also satisfied with this special physical feature. It made me the owner of the world record.
Before Mehmet, Thomas Weathers of the United Kingdom had the longest nose in the world. Thomas, who worked in a circus in the 1970s, had a nose length of 19 centimeters or 6.5 inches.
