To be fair, only those records recognised by Guinness should count shouldn't they? After all, isn't the R15 a "silly challenge"? :lol:

It's the 'premier league' of tube challenging and a test of skill. Clearly only the best challengers about win, except some freakish occurrence last season. ;)

Why are we celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday this weekend? Tomorrow is her official birthday, not her actual birthday. But she's only had an official birthday since 1952, so tomorrow is only her 65th official birthday.

Alternatively you could say that tomorrow is the Queen's 155th birthday :)

The Queen's not on the forum, so there's no need to worry so much.

I note that everyone on the news has been saying "official 90th birthday" rather than "90th official birthday", which cleverly gets round the problem!
