TBWCYL Update Time Day 63

It seems like some of these events are getting responses this week. Apparently my World Record will not be logged into the Guinness Book. Below is my rejection letter.

Dear Mr Trinity Vaughn,

Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record attempt for 'Longest consistent Urination'. We are afraid to say that we are unable to accept this as a Guinness World Record.

We receive over 60,000 enquiries a year from which only a small proportion are approved by our experienced researchers to establish new categories. These are not 'made up' to suit an individual proposal, but rather 'evolve' as a result of international competition in a field, which naturally accommodates superlatives of the sort that we are interested in. We think you will appreciate that we are bound to favour those that reflect the greatest interest.Guinness World Records has absolute discretion as to which Guinness World Record applications are accepted and our decision is final.

Guinness World Records may at its discretion and for whatever reason identify some records as either no longer monitored by Guinness World Records or no longer viable.

As your record application has not been accepted, Guinness World Records is in no way associated with the activity relating to your record proposal and we in no way endorse this activity. If you choose to proceed with this activity then this is will be of your own volition and at your own risk.

Once again thank you for your interest in Guinness World Records.

Yours sincerely,

Mariamarta Ruano-Graham
Records Management Team

That is all,

So true. However, he didn't claim that I didn't hold the record, just that they couldn't recognize it. I win.

It is good to have an official letter that you pee at your own risk, Vaughn. Haven't I told you that a thousand times! We can't be responsible for what happens to your body naturally, you bastard!!!
