    Thanks everyone for the comments! me and my friend really appreciate it. We decided to break this record because our english teacher wanted us to break a record using an eglish based item so thats why we picked pencils. I am not sure what record i will breack next but i will try to break another one as soon as possible!!!

    Well I think this pencil tower still stands as a record for "Tallest Pencil Tower" under the variation / criteria of two pencils per story. Not sure how you'd word this as a title, the other variation is using any configuration/number of pencils choice which would better suit the records listed.

    Nice find, Peter. Let's add that video and make Dan's submission a fail.
