The Dragon Is A World Record Holder! Bump Up His Score! PS: Our Toothbrushes And A Picture of A Link To The Dragon Drop Were On CNN
There’s a new website called the Universal Record Database, or URDB, that’s like an open Wikipedia-style version of the Guiness World Records. Basically you can submit whatever record you like as long as it’s evidenced, quantifiable and breakable, and they bestow upon you the honor of an official world record.
I’m happy to announce that the Dragon Drop has earned a world record for “Most Photographed Dragon Statue In San Francisco”. Every time someone takes a picture and makes us aware of it, that score goes up, so let us know, or tag it on Flickr with “thedragondrop”.
So congratulations, dragon! :) Those China Town dragons are in a lot of pics, I’m sure, but they’re not as quantified as you. Oh no they’re not. And with a little love one day you just might be The Most Photographed Dragon Statue In The World.
Now, not for humans to be outdone by dragons, there was also a world record set in the house when, after some bathroom organizing, we discovered we had 11, count ‘em, 11 toothbrushes in the bathroom, giving us the world record for “Most Toothbrushes On Bathroom Counter”.
And, crazily, Dan Rollman from the URDB was on CNN for a whopping 9-minute segment which you can see here. The website pops up at 2:26 displaying our toothbrushes in all their glory, along with a link to this very blog (or a picture of a link to this blog, so no extra traffic :)). What’s up, cable TV!
Anderson Cooper, let us know when you want the dragon on for an interview!
