The website RecordSetter has begun to take on the same territory, but with a more inclusive policy.

Famous quotes containing the words record and/or world:

    The house seems heavier
    Now that they have gone away.
    In fact it emptied in record time.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    What a vast traffic is drove, what a variety of labour is performed in the world to the maintenance of thousands of families that altogether depend on two silly if not odious customs; the taking of snuff and smoking of tobacco; both of which it is certain do infinitely more hurt than good to those that are addicted to them!
    Bernard Mandeville (1670–1733)
