New Guinness World Record Set for Longest Book Domino Chain – 5, 318 Books (video)

United-Biscuits-main_tcm25-371042[1]Back in January, employees of the UK-based United Biscuits lined up 5,500 books in a chain and knocked them down, domino-style, setting a new world record.

The attempt was made at a sales conference in Old Windsor, England. it was developed in partnership with Guinness and sprung on United Biscuit’s salespersons that morning as a team building exercise.

it was a less than perfect effort; around a couple hundred of the 5,500 books didn’t topple, but enough did fall that a new record of 5,318 books was set. The previous Guinness World Record of 4,988 books was set in March of last year in Cz?stochowa, Poland.

Is it bad of me that all I could think was, "I’m so glad I’m not the one to have to pick them all up." 🙂

I was thinking that this was good training in how to put up with unreasonable demands from management. 😉

I watched the video before I posted it. And so did Piotr of eBookFriendly.

It was public at one point. I have no idea why some fool at GBWR changed it.
