We broke quite a number of world records during this year’s National Day celebration.
Let me know if I missed out any.
OK, I’m pretty fine with the largest floating platform since we need a place for NDP. But will you all STOP TELLING EVERYONE that we have the largest floating platform? My last count was 103839374 times. Please. The only reason why we had the largest floating platform is not because it is hard to achieve but because nobody see the point of doing one.
And all the largest national flag record are stupid.
9000 people forming Singapore flag at the Padang using 9000 umbrella!! Assuming each umbrella cost $5, it would have been $45,000. That amount of money could have been put into better use by giving to 173 old folks and disable citizen. ($45,000 / $260 = 173)
Then there is this 7000 paper stars to form a National Flag. The reason why nobody broke that record is because nobody thought of it before. If you want to break another world record, try forming a National Flag with things like pen or rocks or CD casing. I’m sure nobody did those before too. And since you are the first one to do it, you don’t need to use 7000. 70 is good enough for the world record.
And 7000 Balloons to form the largest national flag was even worst. Didn’t you guys watch the 7 July 2007 Live Earth concert? It was only 1 month ago.
When will we stop breaking senseless world records just for the sake of breaking one?
Can’t we break some meaningful records?
Like most people to offer seat to a pregnant woman on MRT?
Or shortest waiting time for taxi along orchard road on a Friday night?
How about least number of guest who turn up late for wedding dinner?
When will we stop breaking senseless world record?
DK intends to break the world record of pointing middle finger for the longest period.
