I'm here to show you how easy and fun it is to break world records. It's like crack its just so addicting to break records. I have made myself a list off some record ideas, because I want to break as many as I can with as many people I can. I learned about this site while I was listening to TWIT.
Step 1: Choosing a Reccord
Now in theory this is the easy part. But with some imagination powder this can be done really easy. For this instructable I will try and make the record "
Longest Time Staring At A Floating Banana While Eating A Banana". Now according the there website "The general guidelines are simple: every record in the database must be a) quantifiable, b) breakable and c) legal". That's not to hard at first I made a list of all the records I want to make/break. The list is dynamic. I recommend you try and make a list.
Step 2: Preparing
Ok so now that we have a record in mind we need to prepare to break it.
What we will need to break this record:
Video Recording Device Thing
Something to record(me)
In this case we don't need a timer, because the video time will suffice but for fun I will add a computerized timer to the tape so I can have an intro and ending.
Step 3: Breaking
Now that we have the materials and the idea we can attempt to break the record. For this record I will make a basic html page found HERE you can use any time, and use my web cam to record myself breaking this record.
Step 4: Submiting the Record
Ok now that you have your footage and edit it to your liking this instructable is not on video editing so I wont cover it. Now go to http://urdb.org/set-a-record and read what they have to say, and fill in the text boxes. Now we wait they say it takes 7days but mine took 3. Now were done.
