Walter Cavanagh has 1,497 valid credit cards -- all of which amount to a $1.7 million line of credit.

Currently, he holds the record for the most credit cards and for the world's longest wallet, which stretches 250 feet, weighs about 38 pounds and can hold 800 cards. But he keeps most of them in bank safe-deposit boxes.

The "Guinness Book of World Records" gave him the title "Mr. Plastic Fantastic," and he has been in the book every year since 1971.

I haven't bought anything with one of my credit cards since college and it never closed. I just get these like two dollar fines every year.

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Lol. After one whole year here, I learnt a few good and bad things about China.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Everything you do is pretty much observed. There are eyes everywhere... They can even read your Wechat texts if they want to...
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    But it's pretty much safe here. Walking alone in the middle of the night in weird dark alleys is completely safe...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that is cool
  • The Helper The Helper:
    at least its safe
  • jonas jonas:

  • jonas jonas:
    Wow
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
