True or false

Quiz 65 – Round 6 – True or False

This true or false round is all about Guinness World Records. Simply answer true or false. All answers are verified by the Guinness World Records website. As records are broken all of the time (and the site itself states that records may sometimes need updating), I have included the date of the record in brackets after the questions.

  1. Good questions, just one thing with the first question though, if he ate one big Mac a day forty years the numbers dont add up to 26000 even including leap years.

    1. You’re absolutely correct – I have amended the wording on this. He ate Big Macs every day – Guinness World Records doesn’t say that this was only one per day. Thanks for pointing out my error 🙂
