In an event seemingly designed specifically to guarantee a write-up on Passport, 10,276 people in China's city of Ordos, in Inner Mongolia, formed the world's largest human domino chain yesterday, besting the previous record of 9,234 Singaporeans desperate for a Passport mention.
The event just gets better: Chinese basketball icon and former NBA center Mengke Bateer, who ESPN informs me averaged 3.4 points per game over his career, kicked off the chain by passing a basketball to the first "domino."
The volunteers, mostly high school students, spelled out "Beautiful Ordos." If they spell out "Passport" next time, I think I can get them on the front page.
