Watch 3,118 Coins Balance on a Single Dime


One nimble user on world record-setting website RecordSetter (duh) currently holds the title for most coins balanced on a single dime. Winner Tai Star carefully composed a tornado-like shape — which is mostly hollow at its center — out of 600 quarters, 501 dimes, 313 nickles, 1,699 pennies, and five foreign coins. He had to adhere to a few rules in order to win the title, including no glues and most impressive of all: the only coin that could rest on any kind of surface was a single dime. Click through to watch him construct the coin sculpture, and feel stupid for not even being able to balance your checkbook.
