“Bangkok’s Central World Shopping Plaza and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration claimed the Guinness World Record for a water-pistol fight,” news.blogs.cnn.com reports, “with 3,471 participants spraying each other for 10 minutes, according to a report in The Nation. The old record was 2,671 squirters for five minutes in Spain in 2007, the report said.” Unfortunate word choice, methinks. And where’s the U.S. in all this? It seems we have a squirt gun gap. Or should that be loophole?
