…It’s Website Wednesday: The Universal Record Database?

Universal Record Database

Are you trying to be the best in the world at something? Do you want to recognize that achievement by setting a world record?

If so, then let the Universal Record Database know, because they’re trying to become the definitive site for human achievements.

Current records include the most images of fish sandwiches looked at in one minute (25), the most American quarters fit inside a belly button (6) fastest singing of American Sign Language alphabet by a hearing individual (11.79 seconds) and more, and each comes with either photographic or video proof of the achievement, such as this video of the fish sandwich image record:

Once a record is set, users can then rate that record, and challenges can be made if you think you’re up to it.

So what are you waiting for? Participation is strongly encouraged.

Apparently the Halo community was more than willing to take on this task, as they quickly jumped on board and cranked out letter after letter for the amusement of all.

Are you ready to get literate?
