Tomorrow I'm going to set two seperate, indisputable, and relatively unobscure world records. I also know that by the time Sunday rolls around, I will no longer hold these records. Explain.

Are these world records something one might find in the Guiness book of world records?

Or are you talking about another kind of record? Paper files? Computer files? Music albums?

Going to sell these records? Give them away? Somebody else will break your record on sunday?

Anything to do with you turning twenty and somebody else turning twenty by Sunday?

Anything to do with time zones?

Anything to do with you turning twenty and somebody else turning twenty by Sunday? Rather a lot, yes. I was weighing up whether or not to not announce my birthday while this puzzle was running, but now that I have, I believe it was the right decision.

Does it have to do with being the youngest member of some sort of organization or command structure? Where the minimum age to join/attain said rank is 20? So on your birthday, you joined and were the youngest member... then a couple days later, a friend of yours/somebody you know turned twenty and joined, taking your status as the youngest member away?

At some point, you would have been the world's youngest 20-year-old (or at least tied for that record). Is this relevant?

Does the place where you're living have a role in these world records?
Does it require a specific action from your side to achieve these records? or is it something that just happens?
Would it be easily possible for us to verify that you indeed hold (held) these records? would we need to check through a lot information for this?
As Sunday has passed now: did you indeed hold these records?

Shortly before you were the world's youngest 20-year-old, you were the world's oldest teenager. Is that it?

Yes. Spoiler.
