Woman who had the world's longest fingernails cuts them after nearly 30 years

A Texas woman who spent about 30 years growing out her fingernails has finally cut them off, and they are heading to a display shelf. Ayanna Williams has been recognized by Guinness World Records as having the world’s longest fingernails on a pair of female hands.

... a final measurement showed Williams’ nails were just over 24 feet. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! went with Williams to a dermatology office where she had her nails trimmed. The museum chain purchased the record-breaking nails and will have them on display later this month at their Orlando location.

It was her first nail cut since the early 90s.

So many questions:
“How did she feed herself?”
“How did she go to the bathroom, bathe, dress herself, etc?
“How did she do anything?”

7. I suppose her bathroom helpers

are looking for employment. Might be a hard job to find.

Gross and I just cannot imagine all the things she could not do for this notoriety? What could you actually do?
