Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!
Unsurprisingly, we’re all about nuts here at Peanut Hottie, so we’re going to show you a few stories that we thought were too nutty to keep to ourselves.
Did you see this?! 164 skydivers break the word record for the largest vertical formation in Illinois . Whilst creating the flower formation, the skydivers hit speeds of up to 240mph. It took this nutty team 13 attempts to beat the last world record set by 138 skydivers in 2012.
A chip shop created a 500-calorie fried milkshake… dubbed ‘chipshakes’. The concoction is made by setting milkshakes in an ice cube tray, coating them in batter, then frying them into a crispy battered ball, which oozes milkshake. You’re able to buy the chipshakes from a Lancashire chippy, Mister Eaters in Preston. Hmmm we think we’ll stick to Peanut Hottie shakes in the future thanks!
Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed his longest ever tightrope walk at the Wisconsin State Fair. This nutty beast was suspended more than 10 storeys above the Milwaukee Mile Speedway crossing the tightrope spanning 480m long. Nik is no stranger to stunts like this, he previously walked across Niagara Falls in 2012 and the Grand Canyon in 2013. Way to go Nik!
