Oh, who am I kidding? Of course it was for nothing! Even so, The Universal Record Database wants to know about it! (via In4mador!)
From their About page:
- Let's see what humans can do.
- What world record are you capable of setting? We believe every person on earth has potential to be the world's best 'something'. URDB's mission is to become the database where all such achievements will live.
- What record categories are acceptable?
The general guidlines are simple: every record in the database must be a) quantifiable, b) breakable and c) legal. If you want to set a record for, say, "Fastest Time Eating a Banana While Standing On The Great Wall of China and Wearing A Purple T-Shirt", go for it. Creativity is highly encouraged.
While not mandatory, achievements that positively impact mankind are encouraged. For example, think "Most Soda Cans Recycled in 24 Hours" instead of "Most Oil Spilled Into a Lake". Let's build a site we'll all feel good about.
