  • United States Good Bye

    Did I count incorrectly?

    OK all, let's calm down. Even if someone shows the piece of gum before they put it in their mouth, it doesn't provide conclusive evidence. For example, what if someone hid extra gum in their cheek? This is why we created criteria that says "IF evidence exists of more than one piece of gum being used, attempt will be denied." In my eyes, such evidence doesn't exist in Brian's case. It appears to be one piece of gum. For that reason, we've approved this submission.

    Brian, my friend, nobody's accusing you of cheating. I actually think all of us in the community know you respect the sanctity of world records enough not to cheat. I don't think that's what anyone is saying, and I definitely don't think anyone is judging you. It's pretty standard for people to question things that can't be seen on RecordSetter videos, whether it's questioning someone with over 1,000 records or someone with one. Ma-ann and Ellie have a right to bring up the question. That's what our community is all about: holding each other to high standards of proof!

    Brian chill out. It is very suspicious and you should have showed the gum to the camera.

  • United States Brian Pankey

    I'm still mad Ellie. I'm now really mad!

  • United States Brian Pankey

    Elle for someone who just holds 3 records you think you can judge me. Do you know what I have done for the record setting community alot more than what you will ever accomplish in your lifetime. When you hold over 1,000 current records than you can call me out!

  • United States Brian Pankey

    I used one piece I just know how to stretch it thin without out breaking it. How dare you people say I would cheat. I'll just re-do it!

  • The Internet Maann B

    Ellie presented a good point, Brian. Could you clarify this please.

  • The Internet Ellie Fischer-Fortney

    You didn't even show the gum in your mouth... You could have like 5 pieces.
