Guinness World Record Day was last Thursday, and hundreds of thousands of people tried to break world records. Have you ever tried to set a record?

Peggy Barney, Colfax

“Oh, when I was a little girl I did try to break a record. It was on the pogo stick, when that was real big. I tried to break the jump record. I practiced all summer long, and I think I got to like 350. I haven’t been able to do it in a long time, though.”

Aaron Rhodes, Ferndale

“No. I can’t say that I have.”

Would you ever make an attempt?

“Probably. If I did it would be something totally random like the world’s biggest rubber band ball.”

Charles Klaudt, Colfax

“No, I never have.”

Would you ever make an attempt?

“No. I really don’t think there’s any record I could break.”

Steve Emerson, Cheney

“One time my wife and I, when we were in college, there was one of those octopus carnival rides for homecoming. We rode it for like eight hours. I assume we have the record on that.”
