2Most People Dressed Like Albert Einstein (404)
Everyone who showed up to the MaRS Discovery District donned a blazer, necktie, and a big white wig paired with a white mustache— basically the famous German-born physicist's go-to style. They may not have developed the theory of relativity, but they sure looked the part. The group bested the previous record of 99 people.
Beyond the whole record-breaking aspect, the event served another purpose: to launch the this year's Next Einstein competition. The contest—which began in 2013—is open to anyone with "ideas that make the world a better place." The winner also gets $10,000 to turn their idea into reality. The deadline to enter is April 25, and the winner will be announced on June 6. (Source)

In a show of carefully coordinated timing and strength, students broke the current world record of 118 armed-linked people to stand up simultaneously.
The world record attempt attracted hordes of mostly first year students. Participants had to practice the slightly tricky move of crouching back-to-back in two long rows, locking arms with the person next to them, then lifting themselves to a standing position in sync with the crowd. Before the attempt, they watched as athletes demonstrated the best technique to ensure success. (Source)

10World's Biggest Orgy (250 couples)
In 2010, Japan successfully set a world orgy record with 250 men and 250 women as participants! The event was held in a warehouse with a professional camera crew taking pictures and recording the entire event. Each sex act and position was choreographed so that couples were simultaneous in their actions. Despite the "orgy" label, the 250 couples (all tested and STD-free) featured in the video have sex only with each other and not with any other couple. The entire event was available for purchase on DVD. (Source)
