Let’s talk about World Records for a second. The last couple of weeks have been, um, record setting.
This is the world’s new tallest Lego tower unveiled in honor of the toy’s 80th birthday in Seoul. It was constructed over 5 days by 4,000 kids and is made of half a million blocks reaching 105 feet into the sky.
Then there’s James Peterson.
This guy spent 17 hours — beginning at 11a.m. on a Friday and ending at 3a.m. the next day — traveling around various local bars near the University of Akron campus in an attempt to set the world record in fist-pumping.
Yes, fist-pumping. According to him:
“I have set the qualifications for this record and every minute that I do this is a new record … My fist is super-glued together to ensure I maintain perfect fist formation.”
The technique he employed in his endeavor is known as the “Jersey-style,” which involves an elbow roll and circular action, rather than the straightforward fist-pump into the air.
So that leads me to believe that there is a potential world record in all of us. So what is it for you? Eating sunflower seeds? Amount of ketchup used? Toe taps?
Today’s question: What world record do you think you have the potential of breaking?
