Darwinism In Action!

Posted By on Tue, Sep 20, 2011 at 11:00 AM

Thought the Internet couldn't get dumber? You're wrong! Who cares about waiting a year to be "officially amazing," as the Guinness World Records website proclaims, when Recordsetter.com has finally taken stupid record setting to the 24-hour internet cycle?

The site's manifesto states, "We believe every person on earth has potential to be the world's best 'something'. RecordSetter's mission is to become the database where all such achievements will live."

That includes "Longest Two-Wheel Office Chair Balance On A Hardwood Floor." (26.41 seconds.)

Partnering with Stride Gum, the site is giving away $500 checks to 100 people who break records, set daily, on things that never were considered record-worthy, like "Longest Distance to Throw an 8 1/2" x 11" Piece of Paper."

But hurry, today's record #91, "Longest Time To Support Body With Arms While Extending Legs Horizontally," is on the tail-end of the 100 record giveaway streak.

I guess after Sept. 28 you'll have to act stupid for free.
