Everybody likes trees, some people like trees more. Portland, Oregon’s status as the world’s preeminent tree-hugging destination is now official. Guinness World Records has just recognized their tree hugging event last summer as a world record. Last July, 936 people simultaneously hugged a tree at a park in Portland for one minute. They also set a record for most splinters removed in an hour, 5 of which from areas once thought to be impossible to get one while clothed. Very odd.
