(John, Ethan, and Nora are surfing the Net.)
John: Look at that newspaper.
Ethan: Wow! It is no bigger than a stamp.
Nora: It is too small to read.
John: I think so too.
Nora: Look at the bottom of this page. This apple is the heaviest in the world.
Ethan: That's a big apple! Hey! Why don't we set a record of our own?
Nora: Good idea! Maybe we can become famous.
John: Yeah! Kissing a shark could make us the bravest people.
Ethan: No way! It's too difficult. We don't even have a slim chance of doing it.
Nora: It's also dangerous. You don't want to be bitten by a shark, do you?
John: Then, how about skating the slowest?
Ethan: Come on. That's boring.
Nora: I want to have the longest hair. What do you think?
Ethan: It will take years. You don't have the patience for that.
John: Right! Besides, you're too lazy to keep your long hair clean and tidy.
Nora: What about you, Ethan?
Ethan: I want to fry the thickest pancakes in the world.
Nora: I'm not sure if you can set that record. But, to be honest, you've already burned the most pancakes!
