There's a world record for everything, and Guinness keeps meticulous records of each of them. For instance, did you know there was a world record for quickly putting people inside soap bubbles? Well, there is, and it was just broken by a man from North Carolina.
56-year-old Steven Langley had a dream: to break a world record by "putting the most number of people in a soap bubble in 30 seconds."

Though few people were expecting to be impressed by fast bubbles today, Langley has done just that!
