    Worlds Largest Family

    Meet the world’s largest family.:swoon::swoon::swoon: If you’ve ever worried about having enough room for a growing brood, spare a thought for Ziona Chana. He has 39 wives, 94 children, 14 daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren living under the same roof. Home is a 100-room, four-storey house set in the hills of the village of Baktawng in the Indian state of Mizoram. Even then, some of his wives sleep top-to-tail in communal dormitories. But Ziona doesn’t appear fazed by the size of his apparently happy family - and doesn’t claim any benefits for their upkeep.
  4. According to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australia's trade surplus surged in August as exports of coal and other minerals increased despite concerns of a global slowdown. Shipments from Australia grew 8% from the previous month, while imports rose 3%, the ABS said. That resulted in a trade surplus of 3.1bn Australian dollars ($2.9bn; £1.9bn), the second-largest on record. The data comes amid concerns that fears of a slowdown may hurt demand for Australia's mineral exports. "Export volumes are really kicking along and that will be a big fillip for the economy in the quarter," said Brian Redican of Macquarie. Analysts said the fact that a huge amount of Australia's mineral shipments head to Asian economies has been a big factor in ensuring that its export sector sustains its momentum, despite global slowdown concerns. They said that as economies like India and China see more people move from rural to urban centres, the demand for minerals will continue to rise. "Both these countries have more than 1 billion people, and that is a big factor", said David Lennox of Fat Prophets As these countries undergo rapid urbanisation, they will also need to boost their power generation capacity in order to meet the increased demand for electricity. "That process is not dependent on what happens in the US or European economies," Mr Lennox said. He added that given these factors, exports of Australian minerals to the region will continue to grow.

    Worlds Largest Chocolate Bar

    12,290 pound chocolate bar they created to set a new Guinness World Record Chocoholics should book themselves tickets to Chicage pronto – because it is currently home*to the world’s biggest chocolate bar. Well, until it gets a good nibbling... The World's Finest Chocolate company has broken the Guinness World Record with a sweet treat weighing 12,000 pounds, measuring 3 feet high and 21 feet long. Sweet! It is thought that this gooey effort has broken the previous record-breaking choc bar by a ton. And the recipe certainly*contains more ingredients than can be*squeezed into the average mixing bowl too, with 1,200 pounds of almonds, 5,500 pounds of sugar, 2,000 pounds of milk powder, 1,700 pounds of cocoa butter and 1,400 pounds of chocolate liquor all included. Despite the mammoth proportions, the vast bar was made to illustrate 'portion distortion' to school children. A spokesman for the company said: “We purposely made this bar to be an example of ‘portion distortion’. “We're committed to educating families about eating right and staying active and doing it in a fun and engaging way.” Of course. And a very worthy campaign... but... Anyone else hungry? It'd be a crime to let it go to waste...
  6. The average floor area of a new free-standing house in Australia is 243 square metres. In the US, house sizes shrank over the last three years to 222 square metres and in Denmark they are 137 square meters, the biggest homes in Europe, according to Bureau of Statistics and other data compiled for Commonwealth Securities. But the average size of the Australian family home, after increasing by 40 per cent in the past 20 years, might have reached a peak. NSW still has the biggest houses in the country. Victoria's were fourth largest at 246 square metres after the Northern Territory and Queensland.
  7. Amateur Photographer Shoots Largest Ever Photo of the Night Sky Michael Zhang · May 04, 2011 Share266 What you see above is the largest true-color photograph of the night sky ever created, shot by 28-year-old amateur astrophotographer Nick Risinger using six astronomical cameras. It’s not just the view of the sky from one location, but is instead a 360-panoramic view of the sky taken by trekking 60,000 miles across the western United States and South Africa starting in March 2010. The final image is composed of 37,000 separate photographs. Check out the massive zoomable high-definition version of the photo here. Fantastic photography.:jiggy:
  8. Australia has the largest homes, average 214 sq metres compared to UK 76 sq metres. Why the difference? Families I suppose are about the same size on average. Is it because we have more space to build? Australians have the biggest homes | Property | News.com.au
