Five people have now attended six World Championships, more than anyone else in the world. Can you name them?
You, Tyson, Ron, Francois (sorry if I spelled that wrong). I can't think of the last (and don't even know if my first 4 are correct).

Edit: Not Francois...
Edit 2: Not you either...
Edit 3: Not Tyson either...

Thank you! Wanna share a cookie?

To everyone else:

There have only been 7 World Championships, so anyone who wasn't at the first one in 1982 needed to be attend all of them from 2003 to now.
Hence why Tyson, Bob, Shelley, Macky, etc. don't qualify for the 6/7 club.
Bob, Adam and I have 5/7. Not sure who else.

Rowe, you were drunk as a skunk, and kept yelling throughout the finals. If that's not distruptive then I don't know what is.
No one in our skybox was disruptive during the competitor's solving or any time remotely close to when inspection began. Sure, we were being fools, but we didn't mind people from down below looking up and laughing at us. We wanted to show our respect, support and adulation of the pheomenal cubers who, after 3 rounds, earned the right to call themselves the top 16 competitors out of nearly 600. I hope they enjoyed the moment and felt like rock stars because while they were up there solving they were rock stars to us. #ourskyboxhadmorefunthanyourskybox

Don't get me wrong... I did think it was funny. But there was just too much at stake on the stage for that type of funny. Something like that could be very distracting during inspection. What if he figures out fewer moves during inspection because people are laughing?
Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to justify the incident, just clarifying what happened.
