I was just reading the Guiness site though, and I had no idea certificates were $20+, I am pretty sure they failed to mention that =/
Anyway, here are the fun facts from the email if anyone is interested!
We are finally able to share numbers with you! The official count is
8,251, that is 3,225 more than last year! Great job everyone! This is
