The last we’d heard of Ordos in Inner Mongolia, it was a completely modern, thoroughly upgraded ghost town, who knew it’d soon become the setting of a Guinness World Record breaking human domino set?
From Straits Times:
MORE than 10,000 people have set a new Guinness World record for ‘human dominoes’ in China’s Inner Mongolia, toppling a record set a decade earlier in Singapore by more than several hundred.
The 10,276, mostly students seated cross-legged and falling backwards in a line that snaked across an enormous square, took 1 hour and 20 minutes to set the new record on Thursday.
‘The human dominoes were a success. The new record is 10,267 people. This is a new Guinness World record,’ Guinness’ official Wu Shaohong said, in images broadcast on state television.
