People that knew that there was a world record for "Dominoes made of people and mattresses" before the other day? Not many, I suspect. Now? At least several more.

Misao Okawa is a young, 117 years old. She’s also world’s oldest person.

Okawa celebrated her birthday a day early with family, and when asked about her long life she had a very simple, yet poignant response.

“It seemed rather short,” she said.

Okawa has said in the past that the secret to her long life has been eating sushi and regularly getting 8 hours of sleep, according to Guinness World Records.

Okawa was born on March 5, 1898, and she officially claimed the Guinness record title in June 2013 after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died at 116.

Some people are deserpate to break a world record. Very desperate. 

On that list of very desperate people is YouTuber Tocen, who broke the world record of my clicks on a mouse in a single video. If you didn't know that that was a record, shame on you! 

Tocen clicked his mouse one million times in 17 hours. So if you're looking for something boring, monotonous, and oddly therapeutic, try skipping around in this video a little bit. It's fun to watch this guy just clicking away. Click.
