You can submit anything for the consideration of the Guiness group. It doesn't have to make sense. As long as it's a "legitimate record", they'll recognize it. If you wanted to set the official record for world's largest recorded booger, they'd probably record it.

Oh god.. This stupid kid. I remember seeing him on that god awful show on Discovery Stan Lee's Superhumans hosted by some bed wetting spaz that spent countless hours `debunking' slight of hand and smoke and mirrors magic tricks then insulting our intelligence but telling us it's legit.

So I know no one but me cares about this, but I'm confused about the lady measuring the distance... They're on a track. I'm pretty sure the distances are already measured accurately and marked accordingly on the track. Even if they aren't, that lady was doing the worst job ever. How can you possibly expect your measurement to be accurate when you're wobbling all over the place? You have to keep the distance measuring device (or as I like to call it, a metermeter) going straight... Not wobbling while straddling a marked straight line.

I'm pretty sure it's just to verify that it's the proper length. I'm guessing that from the ground, virtually no one would be able to tell the difference between 80 and 100 yards/meters just on sight. So it's probably a situation where it's like "oh, look, we're at 100ish and there's the line. Good deal."

They're on a track! And not a temporary one. It's very obviously used for sanctioned track events. And anyone who spends any time at track meets has a pretty good feel for the distances of the various events--which are permanently marked. In the same spot. On every track. So, no, there should be no question of "are we about 100ish?"

Also, if we're timing for a world record, why are they using a stopwatch? And why would Guiness accept a timing record on a stopwatch?

This entire episode is a failpalooza from concept to completion!

Despite the nonsense that this "feat" is, he's galloping on all fours, not just running crouched. His hands are on the ground when his feet aren't and vice versa.

Lets send this man back to the start line to actually put some weight on his upper limbs.

Still ungody fast bent over running, but NOT running on all fours.

That's really farking stupid.

abhorrent1: That's really farking stupid.


I thought that at first but then was given a swimming analogy. We don't discount all but the most efficient/effective swim style.
