BELLY BUTTON FLUFF
Graham Barker from Perth, Australia is the owner of what is often
considered the most bizarre collection ever. He started to collect
the weird memorabilia when he noticed his own navel lint one
night and became curious about how much fluff a person produces.
Each night, he takes whatever he can find in his belly button and
stores it in a jar, bought specifically for this purpose.
At the end of each year, he adds the lint to his grand collection.
In the 26 years that he has been collecting his own fluff,
he has managed to fill three glass jars, and he is already working
on his fourth.

gun collection in the world. The Super Soaker water gun was first

and the ancient Roman road Appian Way as well as not-so-famous roads.
Sergei Frolov has a fantastic collection of over 150 Soviet-made
calculators, as well as vintage computers, watches and slide rules.

vintage electronics museum.

world’s largest hot sauce collection. His amazing 6,000 bottle collection
from around the world includes a rare bottle of “Blair’s 16 Million Reserve,”

Barbie dolls are not that unusual of a memorabilia for little girls,
but for a grown man is a different story. 33-year-old Jian Yang
from Singapore has in his house a collection of over 6000 Barbie dolls.
Although Yang has a pretty massive collection, the 2013 edition of
Guinness World Records gives the award for the largest Barbie doll
collection to Germany’s Bettina Dorfmann, who owns something
like 15,000 Barbies.

hobby of collecting penises from different types of species.
The collection has a total of almost 300 penises from different species
of animals including whales, seals or land mammals. Hjartarson is
adamant that his museum is a scientific and cultural undertaking about
which there’s no reason to be squeamish, and that there’s nothing erotic
or pornographic about it.
