Meaningless garbage. When I was younger, I used to be thrilled by the accomplishments of Guiness Books of Record (GBR) holders because they were immortals, to me at least. It was made up of the person who first climbed mount Everest, to the youngest doctor at the age of 9 and stuff like that. But now GBR is filled with garbage, I mean they have stupid awards like the largest flash mob, largest dog wedding, most number of candles extinguished by fart, like seriously?? I didn't make any of this up, u can just Google them for yourself.

Anyone can make it To the GBR if you just come up with a silly category and get a bunch of people to join you. Nairalanders can decide that they will gather at National Theater and clap their hands for 10 minutes and I bet you they will earn a record for the largest gathering of people to clap for 10 minutes. Its that stupid

GBR has realized most people just want fame and glory, so yes they will let you do stupid things and give you the award because you have to pay to be featured anyway, it's their way of generating revenue and remaining relevant.
