Who doesn't like a good leaderboard? On this episode, the panel plays the Guinness Game of World Records, based on the famous book that was wedged next to the encyclopedias in your third grade class. It's a little bit of trivia and a whole lot of dexterity as players try to beat each-other's records in a race to 100 points. Is this 70's classic as much fun as poring through a bunch of tiny black-and-white text?

Fun fact: If my friend and I can't decide where to have lunch, I made a Magic Lunch Sheet to pick for us.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WdAztfbKGaR18NkKzgBR...

It chooses a place at random from our list each time the page is loaded. If we don't go there for at least a year, it's removed from the list and we can add/subtract things as we find new places or get tired of some.

I like the spinner idea too though.

Another Fun Fact: For Book It! (the Pizza Hut reading program thing) in 5th grade, I read the 1990 Guinness Book of Records cover to cover to get the 500-some-odd pages. We had to write a quick 1 page summary of the book to prove we read it and I wrote about how I would achieve certain records and beat the people who set them.


Is Book It! still a thing in grade school?
