  • Question
    What is the difference between a group record and a mass record?

    A mass record is bigger than a group record. Mass is like 10,000 and group is like 100.
  • Question
    Has anyone made a world record making preserves?

    There is one for jam doughnut eating, but not for making jam.
  • Question
    Could I submit for being a part of six living generations?
    Community Answer
    You can submit anything you like, but you need to remind yourself lots of others are doing the same thing so don't get too hopeful.
  • Question
    Do I have to be a certain age?
    Community Answer
    You can be any age. In some editions of the book, there are special sections with suggestions for records for kids to break if you're still a kid.

      • "Fast Track" gets your application reviewed in 3 working days, but costs 300 British pounds, or nearly 500 American dollars. Avoid to use this option! Otherwise it can even happen that the Guinness people tell you "we are not interested in your record proposal (but thank you for the money anyway)".
