World Record: Most 'Sword Swallows' In One Minute

By Gerard @presurfer
Sword swallowing is an ancient performance art in which the performer passes a sword through the mouth and down the esophagus to the stomach. This feat is not swallowing in the traditional sense; the natural processes that constitute swallowing do not take place, but are repressed in order to keep the passage from the mouth to the stomach open for the sword.
American performance artist and President of the Sword Swallowers Association International Dan Meyer set a new world record by swallowing 13 swords in one minute.
