Sure, the Guinness Book of World Records may be a classic, but its method of collecting records is a bit dated. In a world where anyone has the ability to film their own world record, it only makes sense for a site like The Universal Record Database to emerge.
The only problem that the site seems to have is its remarkable ability to attract useless world records.
While some of the records found on the site are quite interesting (for example the largest collection of boom boxes or largest cookie), the majority of the records you’ll find on URDB aren’t meant to be taken seriously. Records like ‘Fastest 52-Card Pickup’ and ‘Longest Pronunciation Of The Word Fresh’ are pretty mundane.
The reason for all the pointless records is the URDB’s lax rules. If you want to submit a record, you must make sure it meets their loose guidelines. Really, the only thing standing in the way from any normal person from achieving a world record is creativity and boredom.
- 1) Quantifiable
- 2) Breakable
