People will do the strangest things to get into the Guinness Book. In the town of Bismarck, North Dakota's case, it's getting everyone in town and their kids and cousins to lie on their backs at the state capitol grounds and flap their arms and legs frantically, all at the same time. Bismarck held the world record in 2002, when 1,791 people assembled to make snow angels, but a few years later students at Michigan Technological University snatched it away with a 3,784-person angel. The hyper-competitive Bismarckans refused to back down, however, and last Saturday they reclaimed their Guinness crown.
