Cool! That's a high record! But can you balance spoons on you face?! It's too strange! I said I can't.

This is wrong, the world record for isnt 177.737! its actually 206.864!

Hi LaughingWalrusSoftware!


Thanks for telling us! World records get broken all the time, that's partly why they're so exciting and a really good challenge! We think that when this story was written, 177,737 was the record, but someone broke the record afterwards. One day someone will probably break the 206,864 record! Are there any world records you would like to try to break?
