I’m a long time reader with a question.I’m living in Rwanda for the summer with 24 classmates from a masters program based in Trinity and UCD, we are all out here doing field research with different organisations. One evening during a long wait for dinner we decided to have a go at a world record. We bought 5100 toothpicks from a shop near by and tried to put them all in my beard. We succeeded.

What I want to know is, is this a world record? Obviously for it to be official Guinness or whoever will need to observe it, but has 5100 toothpicks been beaten already? Do I need to keep growing the beard to fit more in? Hopefully your readers can help tell me what I need to do to make this a record.

Anyone?
