    Guinness World Records

    I'm pretty sure we've got the record of most protest locations worldwide or something like that. Anyone want to push it on them?

    To be in the book is a fucking hassle, and its not like they have a category for "Largest protest in Bumfuck, Middle of nowhere"

    Doesnt work.

    Largest Anonymous Protest?
    Biggest organisation with no leader?
    Biggest internet based group with no leader?
    Biggest anonymous group?
    Biggest anonymous protest?

    Scientology arranged two Guinness records for Hubbard somehow that any fact-checking at all would have rejected, so looking into what pull they have with Guinness might be an idea first.

    Most published/most translated author
    Vox Magazine - Guinness gracious
    Guinness World Records: L. Ron Hubbard Is the Most Translated Author
    Two New Guinness World Records Awarded to L. Ron Hubbard

    Even counting all of his Scientology stuff as "published", many authors have been published far more. Look at Isaac Asimov, who published more books than Hubbard did short stories, and had tons of short stories and monthly columns running for decades, all of which count as separate publications. 1084 would be easy to beat. So that one fails.

    Moving on to most translated, a look at the list of languages that Scientology usually claims, it's obvious that they've padded the list with duplicates and dialects.

    This CoS page claims 33, which is more credulous:
    Into what Languages have L. Ron Hubbard's books been translated?

    Here's the list that they're claiming:
    Mexican-Spanish, Brazilian-Portuguese... Taiwanese??

    wasn't this idea failing hard enough in the anonymous think tank?

    Largest coordinated Rick-Roll protest? Cool. Any record-hounds that want to beat that will have to protest something. Why not Scientology?

    A record-hound is fine too.

    Now if only Guinness would fact-check those Hubbard records.
