Equal parts disgusting and impressive, Ryan Stock inserted 56 centimeters of glowstick into his right nostril, for no real reason except to beat a world record. 

As you’ll see in the video, Stock accomplishes the feat with little effort, shoving the glowstick into his nostril until only a sliver is left hanging out. After marking how far the glowstick is inside his nose, he then pulls it out (which looks just as worse as when he put it in).

RecordSetter, the YouTube channel that uploaded the video, also has other strangely impressive videos, such as a dude breaking 726 bricks in 90 seconds with his bare hands, and another guy extinguishing five candles with his farts. Anyway, kudos to Stock: Not only did you break a record but you probably also made someone throw up their lunch, too.
