Some innovative folks in Zhuhai, Guangdong, have launched a massive 2,600 square meter kite called the “Chinese Knot,” which has now slid into the Guinness Book of World Records, along with China’s previous entries like its massive Sushi Mosaic, the most-attended pre-natal yoga class ever, and some flower thing in Hebei.
The details of the kite are pretty impressive (in a certain sort of way) and are a fantastic testament to the amount of free time one can apparently have in Guangdong, as The Nanfang explains:
The kite weighs approximately 500 kilograms, is 98 meters long, and required 30 men to help it take to the air. Its construction required 15,600 meters of imported nylon and underwent 30 revisions during its design.
You keep fighting the good fight, Guangdong-ers. The kite was built as part of an annual kite festival in the area, and broke the world record set by—you guessed it—last year’s massive kite.
