Guinness World Records

Ever wonder why they started the Guinness World Records? I never put 2+2 together and got beer, but that is where it started.

Check this out.

Yes, it started to prevent bar fights. (bar bets often turn into bar fights don't they?)

"The Guinness book got its start as a volume designed to help settle bar bets. The beer company, which sold the rights to the book in 1992, delivered it to pubs as a promotion for its primary product"
