Guinness World Records Day

November 13th, is Guinness World Records Day, the worldwide annual celebration of breaking and setting a record. This should not be confused with Guinness World Drinking Day, if there is one.

I remember looking through the Guinness Book of World Records as a kid, and trying to come up with the new record for anything. I tried jumping on one foot, walking backwards, chewing the most amount of gum, catching coins off my arm like The Fonz, but I was never successful.

From amazing to shocking, these records are a testament to the interesting world we share together. These days the infamous records book can be viewed in more ways than one. The Guinness World Records 2009 book comes with a pair of 3D glasses to view more than 20 3-D photographs, and sports an eye-catching ‘sunburst’ holographic cover.  You can even get interactive with the GWR the video game!

Here’s a vid from Guinness World Records Day 2007:
