Ridiculous Record of the Day: Seattle's 2,131-Book Domino Rally

Anything to get the kids in the library, right?

It took 27 volunteers, 112 slices of pizza, and five attempts.

But after seven hours, the Seattle Public Library succeeded in setting the record for the longest domino rally of books ever.

It's quite mesmerizing to watch, actually, not least because it takes place in the Seattle Central Library, the system's airy flagship location designed by Rem Koolhaas/OMA.
