World records!
« on: February 01, 2008, 11:06:45 AM »
Here's a lesson I just did with my ninense. I've only done it with one class but it went over really well. Special thanks out to Paul for some help he gave me.

Here's how I did it.

Came in carrying a pizza box, this immediately started the kids talking and asking questions. I talked alittle about the differences between american and Japanese pizza then mentioned some Pizza world records.

worlds biggest pizza: 37.4 meters made in Norwood S. Africa Dec. 8th 1990

Largest Pizza order: Aug 19th 1998 to Little Ceasers from the VF corporation. 13,386 pizzas to 180 locations accross the US.

Fastest Pizza maker: Dennis Tran: 3 large pizzas in 49.1 seconds.

Largest (commercially available) Hamburger: 13.2kg from Foxwood resort casino.

there were acompanying pictures for The longest beard, longest hair, heaviest omelet.

This is being posted on Feb. 5th 2008, be sure to check to see if any of these records have been broken. I kept finding records and then discovering them to have been brocken in more recent websites.
Go Dumples!

That's really good practice for superlatives!!
"Embiggen" is a perfectly cromulent word.
