So, with Rage being surprised at how easy it is to get yourself in Guiness World Records[^], I bet there must be some posters on here who are or have been in the book. Either named or were participants in an event that is in.

I have never been, although as I mentioned below my SIL and niece are. My parents, when at college and before they were married were both in for taking part in some sort of non-stop knitting record. They have a newspaper clipping about it somewhere.

So, who has been in and what did you do?


Edit: Just remembered I was involved in one. I went on a stag do to the rugby world sevens at Twickenham a couple of years ago where the broke the world record for most people dressed in beach attire (or some such nonsense).
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
