    This record is close to me. Me & also previous record holder giant Todd Defazio both used entirely pencils of size no. 2. In this record attempt he used different size of mixed pencils in which I clearly see many round pencils slimmer than size no. 2 pencils. If he able to repeat same performance entirely with size no. 2 pencils then competition from my side will be on & I am ready to cross extreme level. Use of pencils of size no. 2 is not mentioned in rule. I want to suggest you to make two record categories in pencil stuffing record. One entirely with size no. 2 pencils & second with mixed sized pencils. Hoping for this amendment.

      They are all number two pencils and it is kinda hard to tell. However hexagonal pencils fit better together than round pencils because there is less space in between and if the round pencils were put end to end with hexagonal pencils the round ones would be bigger.

      Besides no. 2 is just the lead not the shape or size of the wood. All the pencils that were used were no. 2 and were either the same size or wider than the standard pencil size.

    Hey Adam -

    Do you have any interest in utilizing your talent to possibly appear on a tv show?

    I thought the number of pencils, who one can fit in the mouth depends on the elasticity, but you said the record requires practise. So can you say how do you practise that (because I have not so many pencils, yet)?
