Here we go, let the countdown begin. Just a few more hair-pulling hours until the weekend is here. But not yet. Here are two sites to help you get there. This week's theme is bragging rights:

WhatsYourRecord.com is a user-generated Guiness Book of World Records. Users can create a profile and add friends, then submit their record, while others can browse through records and try to best them or submit their own record. There are single records, group records and a map that displays where users are registered (the site seems to be popular in Austria right now.) There are even records that have not been attempted yet, if you're feeling daring. Two of my favorites so far yet to be attempted include "Most eaten pancakes in 12 minutes" and "Farthest mobile phone throw."

The obvious question about this site is how records are authenticated. I guess we'll just have to go with the good old honor system. Play fair, kids. It's an entertaining site and worth a few Friday afternoon minutes. And it just launched this week, so as the site gains in popularity, look for the records to keep growing.

Finally, if you're head gets just a little too big after setting a few records, head over tho GreatAchievements.org. There you can read about some serious accomplishments that actually made a difference in society. That should bring you back to earth. Of course, I bet Einstein couldn't eat more than 20 pancakes in 12 minutes.
