In Ordos, China, on Aug. 12, 10,267 people made the largest human domino. The people sat down cross-legged in lines and slowly collapsed backwards into the lap of the person behind, one after the other, like toppling dominoes. They wore color coordinated outfits, so as to spell out the name of their town. Chinese state TV broadcast the event, which took 80 minutes to complete. The Ordos human domino champs beat a 10-year-old record set by 9,234 Singaporean students. Ren Junchuan/Xinhua/Newscom
