Sri Lankan breaks record for watching TV

Sri Lankan Suresh Joachim who lives in Canada has set a new world record for watching TV. He had watched TV for 69 hours and 48 minutes surpassing the previous record of 50 hours and 7 minutes. This was done in the lobby of WABC-TV as part of the "Guinness World Record Breaker Week" on the syndicated "Live With Regis and Kelly."

He has watched ABS shows continuously for that entire period. This is not his first Guinness World Record either. He has an amazing 16 of them!. Most are quite bizarre.

Among them
Running for 1,000 consecutive hours,
Balancing on 1 foot for over 76 hours,
Traveling up and down an escalator for 7 days, covering 156km in Australia,
Performing 84 hours drumming of continual drumming in Switzerland,
broadcasted on the radio for an incredible 120 hours (Canada)
Dancing non-stop for 100hours,
84-hour drumming marathon, .

Joachim is saying he is doing this to raise awareness of suffering children. And he sure is getting attention from world over because of his miraculous stamina.

There are quite a few teenagers I know who, given a few bottles of Coke, might give the TV record a push.
