The world record for
toppling dominoes has been broken! Some 4,491,863 dominoes bit the
dust in Holland this weekend, smashing the standing world record of 4,345,027.
Both records were set by a man known as Mr. Domino.
Mr. D was helped by
a team of 90 domino experts from 14 European
who worked for two months on the masterpiece, in the Netherlands
town of Leeuwarden. The builders used rulers and tweezers to ensure each
stone was in its exact spot.
When toppled, the
dominoes fell in a sequence lasting one-and-half-hours in which dominoes
unveil paintings and
do all manner of other nerdy things.
