The distance on one wheel in an hour record has fallen.

Here's a thread with details and a great picture of the 36" wheeled uni that it was done on:-

Ok that statement has got me thinking...... (dangerous thing to be doing on a sunday)

So can you get Tandem unicycles?

Stabilizers? (no sorry thats a dumb idea it wouldn't be a unicycle then)

Well, strictly speaking, a bicycle with stabilizers is no longer a bicycle, so I wouldn't worry about that too much.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

although if the stabilizers weren't wheels, it'd still be a unicycle....
