Two Very Important Records

Will you join me now in celebrating two very important world records, which were set this past weekend. Both these records will be recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records (which today is highlighting the world's longest ear hair), so we know they're legit. Honestly, feats like these come along so rarely, that they certainly warrant whatever recognition we can offer.
  • In California on Saturday, a 20-year-old CIT student set the Rubik's Cube World Record. He solved that tricky puzzle in 11.13 seconds. Whoah! It probably would take me that long to even get started. He still did not win the champion title at the event due to his average time being slower despite this stellar effort.
  • In Chapel Hill, NC students from Duke University and the University of North Carolina finished playing the longest continuous basketball game. The final score? 3,688-3,444. And it figures, Duke won. It doesn't sound like a lot of defense was played to me.
