Going back to school? Not excited about it? These 10 school-related world records may not take away all the pain, but they should at least remind you that certain elements of the educational experience can in fact be enjoyable.
Think your classes feel long? Andreas Luck taught an English Conversation lesson to his students in Bangkok, Thailand that measured a world record 79 hours and five minutes in length. Just keep that in mind the next time you’re dying for the bell to ring.
If you’re not bored at school, we commend you. If you are, try beating these records or inventing a new one and submitting them to us at recordsetter.com/submit.
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.
There comes a point in every person’s life when everything takes a turn for the worse. Our minds become infested by the outside world and we begin to lose the values and human decency that we were all born with. Our lives become almost completely self-serving. In many ways, this is a good thing. For instance, the loss of self-consciousness can lead to an uninhibited exploration of the self. Furthermore, without selfish businesspeople, we wouldn’t have capitalism and as a result we wouldn’t be able to buy things. And most importantly, the loss of morals drives those with insecurity to shatter the world records of innocent children and therefore drives traffic to our site.
So, in celebration of RecordSetter co-founder Corey Henderson’s idea to create a blog post about the top world records set by kids that adults have ruined by beating, I hereby present to you the Top World Records Set by Kids That Adults Have Ruined by Beating.
The brilliance and logic behind Patrick Hardin’s record world record for Most Money Placed on an Electronic Chessboard shouldn’t need any explanation. It’s safe to assume, however, that Mortimer Blackwell, the current record holder of Hardin’s original feat, does not share Hardin’s sense of subtle ingenuity.
