Nope, because the grapes could be used for other purposes when they're harvested, like wine or jelly, or just eating.

Every once in awhile I come across one of theses Civil War pictures, and every time I do it surprises me. For some reason I can't get my head around the Civil War and photography, even though I've seen hundreds of them.

Snipers

I believe it for the first row on my right, second row my left and maybe center, third row my right and maybe left, and last row my right. Natural born killers.

I was blown away until I saw the spokes.

I mean sure, he can lift more than me, but most of that wheel is hollow.

Oh, and according to Wikipedia:

Quote:
Lift included in the Guinness Book of World Records This record has been expunged due to no official witness being present, and no evidence of the weight's measurement. (Source: "Guinness Book of World Records".)

Backlift: 6,270 lb (2,840 kg) (weight raised slightly off trestles; done June 12, 1957, in Toccoa, Georgia)[1]
emphasis mine

These days he'd have negotiated a lucrative sponsorship deal with a leading hernia clinic.

Sure, to go in the Guinness book they have to have somebody there to check. That doesn't mean it didn't happen. It's quit possible as Anderson was generally recognized as the strongest man in the world for a whole lot of feats, like Olympic gold and a couple national championships, not just for this stunt. I'm sure there are some farm boys who could do this, but never receive recognition beyond local lore and bar bets, I've met a couple.

6,270 lbs is a really big number and difficult to believe.

I don't know much about weightlifting records. If you Google the subject, you can find articles that tear his claim apart. He apparently did the lift in his backyard by piling junk on a table he built, and then lifting the table. And then weighing the junk. Maybe he made an addition mistake. That article mentions a safe that weighed 1,200 lbs less than he claimed it did. He claimed three people were witnesses, but at least one of those witnesses said they were not there that day but just heard about it later.

He was a strong man. There are plenty of official records out there of lifts he did, and he was an olympian. Nothing to be ashamed of.

But 6,270 lbs? That's 3 cars at once. No way.
