Whole lot of suckers
James Brown, a 33-year-old from Nottingham, England, took home the oddball record of Largest Collection of Vacuum Cleaners in the latest Guinness book. For some reason, Brown began collecting vacuum cleaners at age 8 and now has a whopping 322 models, the focus of his museum of vacuum cleaners.
The collection has little value beyond its sheer eccentricity but includes rarities such as Kirby and Scott & Fetzer machines. Ironically, Brown does not enjoy housework, Guinness said in a release.
