Card stacking is apparently anything but boring for Bryan Berg, who just recently set the world record, at 25ft, for the tallest structure made exclusively of cards. The professional "cardstacker" says it took him 5 weeks and 1,800 stacks of cards to build the paper sculpture.
This is one of many creations; Berg has also created other architectural models including skyscrapers, cathedrals and stadiums. All of his structures, the record breaker included, were created without any adhesives.
Implications - Berg began his card house building exercises when he was merely eight-years-old. By the time he was 17, he held the Guinness World Record for World's Tallest House of Cards, his tower reaching 14-feet and six inches. And he's not stopping there.
After being asked whether he could build a bigger structure, he responded promptly, "You bet!"
