If a record (the high score kind, not the vinyl kind) actually meant something, we wouldn’t keep track of it. Records are unusual, so you can’t put any real meaning into them. It doesn’t matter if we have a record low temperature, because there was one before, and there will be another. This one is no different unless it becomes the average.

Do you think Romans ever thought the Roman Empire was going to end? Must we conclude that all things come to an end? Just because most things that started have ended doesn’t prove absolutely that all things come to an end. Put another way, everything that has ended started at one time, thus everything that starts will end. That’s a fallacy if I remember correctly.

Puppies are cute. I will eventually take pictures of mine.
