At RecordSetter we host a slew of impressive juggling world records on our site. Recently, Selyna Bogino, a young Italian juggler and acrobat artist, came across our computers. This girl has some insanely unique talents (and we see a lot of talent!). She juggles…upside down…with her feet. In the video description Bogino says, “I’m practicing at home for fun,to beat the world record of the longest and most difficult 5 balls routine ever..!”
We wish her the best of luck, definitely looks difficult enough to us. Selyna, if you’re reading this, we’d be honored if you’d set some awesome world records on our site. We’d be thrilled to have you join our community.
Well, that definitely fills the inspiration quota for the day. Watch her video, then go set records!
This week students head back to college to hit the books, grow professionally…and set world records. Laura D’Asaro of Harvard University (Kirkland House) used 566 boxes to make a cardboard fort with her fellow dorm room buddies, a new world record. The structure measured 46 feet, 5 inches by 24 feet, 8 inches, with a height of 15 feet tall at the front towers and 8 to 9 ft. on the other sides.
Three World Records Waiting to be Set:

Today we celebrate International Bacon Day. After searching our database we were astonished to find only one bacon related world record. We have faith that our community can raise the bar and add more bacon-licious records to our site. Watch the video below and see our list of bacon world record ideas for inspiration.
Twitter is a growing place for world records when it comes to celebrities and their crazy awesome fans. Yesterday, Beyoncé revealed to the world that she has a mini-Beyoncé bundle of joy on the way at the MTV Video Music Awards. Twitter exploded with an onslaught of congratulatory and I told you so tweets, as Beyoncé rubbed her little baby bump and told the world, ”I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.”
Twitter Comms reported that after the news there were 8,868 tweets sent per second.
This was more than Japan’s Earthquake, the Superbowl, and Michael Jackson and Osama Bin Laden’s deaths combined.
The days of the material world are over. We have moved into the digital realm. We talk to each other lyk dis and everything is very cncs (concise). We have no time 4 vowels or long wrds. We’ve got tngs 2 do n c, and don’t have time for sincere human interaction. Within time we’ll all exist strictly on the internet, in digital form. It sounds horrible, but we’ll save a ton of money on food.
For those of you behind the times, here is some social media behavior which will be commonplace in our future world.
This Tumblr note currently has over 2,800,000 notes, which means it’s been “liked” or re-blogged that many times. We’re hoping that all 2+ million of those notes are “likes,” as opposed to re-blogs. Otherwise, we’ve got some wizards on our hands. Or liars… which are even worse.
This record would not have been possible without social media. The only alternative would have been to organize a stampede of well-wishers at Bena Roberts’ door and that would have been chaos. But the important aspect of this record attempt is its good-naturedness. They say that mental health can actually improve physical health.* So, by my calculations, Twitter cures cancer. Thanks for wasting everyone’s time and money, doctors.
Here at RecordSetter we got tons of super interesting submissions. Some may say they are extremely random…but that doesn’t make them any less impressive. Each week we’ll be posting a short entry as an ode to the odd world records we love.
Two of our awesome world records have really caught on. We are proud to announce they are so entertaining that folks have taken it upon themselves to make them into animated GIFs. See the records and the GIFs below. We’re pumped.
