Just like the
longest paper chain, to set the record for the world's longest paperclip
chain there are some rules:
Each paperclip can be no longer than
Each paper can be no wider than 1 1/4
Your team may have up to, but not
more than 60 people.
You have 24 hours.
So if you are up for some paperclipping
then you'll have to beat the team from Eisenhower Jr. High School, Taylorsville,
Utah, who on March 26 to 27, 2004 linked together 1,560,377 paperclips which
totaled 22.17 miles in length.
If you can't find 59 enthusiastic
friends to help you then you can try for the world's longest paperclip chain by
an individual in 24 hours.
The current record is held by Dan Meyer
and was set on February 13 to 14, 2004 consisting of 54,030 paperclips with a
total length of 5,340 feet or 1,627.6 meters.
