  Most baloons inflated with nose-world record set by Andrew Dahl

  Andrew sat in a chair in the Blaine Public Library, flanked by his father, Doug, who was in charge of measuring the balloons to ensure they met the minimum diameter of 20 centimeters, and mother, Wendy, who kept a tally.

   One after another, Andrew, an eighth-grader at Blaine Middle School, brought the balloons to his nose, plugged one side of it, exhaled through the open nostril and quickly tied off the inflated balloons.    

  Andrew needed to inflate each balloon to at least 20 centimeters wide, tie each one himself, document the attempt with photos and video and have at least two independent witnesses document how many balloons he could inflate with his nose in 60 minutes.

  An unofficial count of unpopped balloons showed that Andrew blew up 213, and average of more than three and a half per minute.


   Andrew said he was 7 years old when he first used his nose to blow up a balloon. “When we had barbecues or get-togethers I’d do it just to show that I could,” he said.  

  Andrew said tying 213 balloons was just as tough as inflating them. He had to stop momentarily while his father put a Band-Aid on his finger, which was bleeding slightly from tying so many balloons.

   Andrew said the family plans to keep some of the balloons but will throw away the rest. He said popping the balloons can be a bit dangerous, because many contain a bit of what had inhabited his sinuses before an hour's worth of nose blowing.
