Big ups to Cramer Ruth for snapping ten pencils in 6.65 seconds. Magically, Ruth now has 20 pencils.
8 1/2″ x 11″ paper doesn’t have to be boring. Joshua James’ 1.6 mm(!!!) paper airplane proves that.
This record is to the point, pun intended. Check out Emily Wilson, who set a world record by sharpening five pencils in 60 seconds.
