I shudder to think about what could happen if unprepared folks start trying stuff so they can have a 'record'.
I'm not a fan of records. They tend to bring out people's inner stupid when ego holds sway over reason. I admit to finding sources like Guinness terribly amusing, but I've seen more than one person hurt badly trying to set a record. I imagine bad things happening for someone trying to set the 'highest off the ground', or 'coldest ambient temp' hangs.
