The shortest: Ebenezer Place

If you love a parade, this isn't the place for it. Stretching credulity, the folks at the Guinness Book have listed Ebenezer Place, in Wick, Scotland, as the world's shortest street.

At 6-foot, 9-inches short, or 2.06 meters, Ebenezer Place is really just the bend around a hotel bar's entrance, between Union and River streets. But it's been there since the late 1800s, so who are we to argue?
