Why are Chinese obsessed with Guinness world record?

As if having the world’s biggest population is not good enough, China continues with the obsession of producing “miracles” and applying for Guinness World Records. Until 2011, China has already held 454 Guinness world records, which made it the 7th most Guinness record holding country in the world. While there are some truly amazing records in the book, many others are simply vain attempts for attention. Still it is entertaining to know that somewhere sometime there are a certain group of people devote themselves to setting bizarre records. Nowadays setting a Guinness world record is often used as a way of creating buzz to promote business and local tourism.
