A Chinese man, Zhang Quan, 70, of Chingqing city, whose clapping hands are nearly as loud as the roar of a helicopter is hoping to get into the record books / Lu Feng.

His claps measured 107 decibels - only slightly lower than helicopter blades which measure 110 decibels.

"When I am clapping, even my own ears feels painful, no mentioning of others. That's why I usually don't clap," says Zhang.

Workers from the environmental protection bureau confirmed that technically Zhang could face arrest for noise pollution if he clapped too often. Link
