OriginEdit

Hugh Beaver was the creator of the Guinness Book of World Records. An engineer by trade, he consulted on many projects throughout England. At one point he became a manager of Guinness Brewery and ran into an argument during this time: which was the fastest European game bird, the golden plover or grouse? Unable to find a source confirming the answer, Beaver realized thousands of similar widely debated questions existed. To correct this problem, he compiled a reference book supplying information about all records, growing each year in popularity and recognition.

EffectsEdit

The stool allows the user to instantly know all information relating to world records. When they were first started, how many times they have been broken, who is the current champion, etc. It is only capable of answering questions regarding scale (size, age, duration) that are physically measurable, disregarding any questions about general trivia. Also, the user becomes very confused and unreliable whenever birds are mentioned or the user knows they’re close.
