Biggest spiral of dominos set World Record by Patrick Sinner

Biggest spiral of dominos set World Record by Patrick Sinner and his friends.

It's not a hobby for impatient people, but a teenager and his group of friends are willing to painstakingly align hundreds of domino pieces if it means they can break a world record.

Patrick Sinner and his friends attempted to make the largest spiral shaped wall of domino pieces, spending 40 hours putting it together in a community hall.

The fifteen-year-old built the wall in Kefenrod, central Germany and his friends Julian, Jan-Eric, Lukas, Dustin and Christian hope that their patience and steady hands will be enough to break the record as they await confirmation from the adjudicators.

Initial counts indicate that the team used 30,000 dominoes and the circle had a diameter of ten metres, covering almost the entire hall floor, before they started the collapse.

The teens were attempting to break two world records, but their second attempt to build a wall of dominos was unsuccessful.

But they were pleased that the spiral fell as planned while being watched by 200 people in hall and by the adjudicators.

It seems Germany has a reputation for setting domino records, as according to the Guinness Book of Records, the tallest domino structure was constructed by students in Buchloe on 5 September 2010.

It was 5.08 m (16 ft 8 in) high and consisted of 9,140 dominos -  the students who spent the time building it, were also allowed to knock it down at the end.

The Guinness Book of Records, also state that was in Germany that the largest number of dominos stacked on one single piece was achieved by Maximilian Poserm, who managed 1002 pieces in Berlin, on 6 February 2009.

Christine Nesbitt - Speed Skating World Record

Christine Nesbitt - Speed skating World Record

Christine Nesbitt took a run at the world record Saturday in winning the 1,000 metres at the Canadian single distance speedskating championships.

The 2010 Olympic champion, who is dominating the World Cup circuit at that distance this season, posted a time of one minute, 13.80 seconds at the Olympic Oval, coming within an eyelash of catching Canadian teammate Cindy Klassen's world best time of 1:13.11.

Winnipeg's Klassen was third in 1:16.56. Brittany Schussler, also from Winnipeg, captured the silver in 1:16.10.

Jordan Belchos of Toronto won the men's 10,000 to add to his 5,000 victory on Friday. Klassen won the 5,000.

Klassen's 1,000 mark, which was also set in Calgary, has stood since 2006.

"No, I wasn't," said Nesbitt politely when asked if she was trying to break the record on a track that also surrendered Klassen's current world records in the 500 and 5,000.

"I was just trying to have a good first lap. I haven't skated a 1,000 on the outer [lane] in a long time, so I wanted to take advantage of that opportunity before world sprints. I will have to start on the outer there."

Nesbitt has won all three World Cup 1,000 metre races this season, all held in Europe.

On the World Cup circuit the higher-ranked skater in each pairing is given the inner lane to start. Here in Calgary this week it is being determined by draw.

At the world sprint championships in Calgary on Jan. 28-29, both the 500 and 1,000 events will be two-race combined times, so skaters will have one inner lane and one outer lane start.

"[The outer lanes is] harder for me, because I don't have a strong start compared to the pure sprinters. So, to start on the outer I find can be a disadvantage. So I was happy to practice that.

"I tried to skate as fast as I can the first lap and then finish the [two-and-a-half lap] race hard."

Nesbitt's previous best time this season was 1:14.82, which set a track record at Astana, Kazakhstan on Nov. 27.

She will skate the 500 metres Sunday to close out the Canadian championships and then will move on to Salt Lake City for a World Cup on Jan. 21-22.

Belchos defended his Canadian title in 13:32.33, some 10 seconds off his personal best recorded at Canadian trials last fall. Scott Bickerton of Nelson, B.C., took the silver in 1:47.83. Stefan Waples of Winnipeg finished third in 1:52.97.

"I knew I wasn't in top form, so I just tried to win, basically," said Belchos, who is recovering from a cold.

"Usually I can hold 31 [second laps] a little longer into the race. Today it didn't come real easy."

Klassen won the 5,000 in 7:08.42. Nicole Garrido of Edmonton was second in 7:16.40. Schussler captured the bronze in 7:14.26.

Trefor Davies - Most comments on an online news item in 24 hours

Trefor Davies - Most comments on an online news item in 24 hours.

An attempt at the world record for the most comments on an online news item in 24 hours is underway, with the organiser aiming to get over 100,000 comments on a blog post.

The record attempt is being organised by Trefor Davies in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the blogger hopes to raise £100,000 for the charity.

Guinness World Records said the attempt would be successful if the blog post managed to get over 100,000 unique comments but Mr Davies hopes to surpass that number.

'With your help we think we can whoop that (number) and have moved the blog on to a state of the art internet platform to cope,' he said.

For every comment received, £1 will be donated to the charity.

Mr Davies added: 'It’s amazing how much support there is out there.

'Firstly people want to help the RNLI and then they are interested in being part of an online world record.

'It is also interesting to see that people who have either been rescued themselves or know someone who has have been making donations.'

Mr Davies came up with the unique record breaking idea when he was in a pub. The internet blogger promised to give £1 for every comment left by a member of staff on his website.

This idea eventually blossomed into the world record attempt.

Mr Davies wants users to leave comments about a person or organisation that has been an inspiration.

Surat girl Priyanshi Somani created a world record

Surat girl Priyanshi Somani created a world record by solving a mathematics quiz in a record time. She completed the task in half the time taken by the current record holder. It is a matter of pride for the entire city of Surat.

Priyanshi bagged the honours by winning Maths World Cup-2010. Earlier, she had achieved this feat by solving 10 questions in just 6 minutes and 32 seconds. However, Turkey-based teenager Hassan Gulbagar broke her record by solving 10 questions in just 4 minutes and 55 seconds. A competition was held in Surat on Tuesday to break Hassan's record and Priyanshi solved 10 questions in just 2.43 minutes!

The speed with which she completed the task surprised everyone including her teacher.

“Priyanshi's feat is amazing and I don't think anyone can break her record. To solve one question, a good mathematician will also take more than five minutes, but Priyanshi solved all of them in just 2:43 minutes, which is amazing,” said, Deepesh Desai, her teacher. According to Desai, the question paper was prepared by the German-based Alternative World Record and Turkish Company Memoroid. It has similar questions which Hassan solved in 4.55 minutes.

Surprised by her own achievement, Priyanshi said, “I had no idea that it would take me only 2.43 minutes to solve the questions. I thought that it would take more than 3.5 minutes to solve them. I still can't believe what I have achieved,” said an ecstatic Priyanshi.

Baluarte Bridge - World's tallest suspension bridge in Mexico

Baluarte Bridge - World's tallest suspension bridge in Mexico


The world's tallest suspension bridge opened in Mexico Thursday spanning a ravine higher than New York's Empire State building and Paris' Eiffel Tower.

At 403 meters or 1,322 feet tall, the Baluarte Bicentennial Bridge connects between the northwestern states of Sinaloa and Durango in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains.

Officials with the Guinness Book of World Records were present as was President Felipe Calderon for the opening ceremony.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon officially opened the Baluarte Bridge in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains Thursday, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported. With a 1,321-foot drop from its deck to the bottom of the Baluarte River beneath, the span was named by Guinness World Records as the world's highest cable-stayed bridge.

According to the BBC, Baluarte stole its record from France's Millau Viaduct, which Guinness says remains the world's tallest, stretching 1,125 feet from top to bottom.

The Mexican span wasn't able to claim the record of being the world's highest bridge. According to the Guinness website, that honor remains with China's Si Du River Bridge in the Hubei province with a deck 1,549 feet off the ground.

The difference between the two bridges is that the Eiffel Tower could fit underneath the Baluarte Bridge but not the Empire State Building, which the Si Du River Bridge would cover.

The Baluarte Bridge isn't expected to open to traffic until later this year. The Reuters news service reported that construction began on the bridge in February 2008 and cost hundreds of millions to complete.
