    *Did Guinness World Records just mentioned that they aligned with kids and families? In the video you watched, they are not only cyclists. They are university students who are:* *>forced to participate* *>forced to purchase those uniforms and bicycles* *>forced to purchase from requested sellers which are sold and profited by president's relatives* *>forced to practice for the event every school day starting at least a month before while classes are dismissed for more than half of the year for such government activities.* *Any student who is not obeying is being expelled from the university. That Guinness Records are made use of in the government propaganda to praise the president that how perfect he is.*

    I feel like his shows perfectly describe how people my age want to consume news: accurate reporting/fact checking, incredibly easy humor, and crazy stunts that are almost irrelevant. It also depicts how we want big media companies to spend their money: covering topics that are less covered by traditional even reputable media outlets, in depth reporting with quirky facts strewn in, and insane obscure stunts that actually have an impact on the political climate that reflects how we view the topic. This is definitely how I wished I could consume 3/4 of my news.

    Our school called a Guinness World Record group to measure some useless thing. (I don’t think we got it) But we weren’t allowed to talk to them, which was a shame, because I wanted to ask them when they were going to ratify John’s cake record.

Those include The Turkmen's native Hat (Telpek) decorated with the picture of a horse, A book about Turkmenistan which includes 50 pictures of horses and 1 picture of an otter, postal cards all decorated with pictures of horses, Jeans with pictures of horses on the little patch behind them and actual horse memorabilia; but still you fucking brits with your eel pies and reverse driving are the weirdest people on earth so don't try to cover that fact up John fucking Oliver
