Oh GOD! please save me from watching these brainless record breaking attempts.
I was reading the morning news paper in Bangalore Deccan Herald. On page 13, there was a photo of a few children brushing their teeth. Apparently the photo shows only part of the story. I believe there were close to 11,000 children assembled at Manila’s Rizal Park to break a Guinness record of “most people brushing their teeth simultaneously”
I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Upon searching, I found that AP had picked up this brainless news item. Here is the link:
Philippines Children Brush for Record
PS: I think media is hungry for such brainless events everywhere. I wrote about such a thing in the US late september on the topic
