Television Watching Record

This may not sound like that big of a deal to you. After all, there doesn’t seem to be anything particularly difficult about setting a record by watching TV for a really long time.

A guy named Suresh Joachim did just that as he sat on his couch and watched the tube for 69 hours and 45 minutes.

Uh, is it just me or does that seem like no big deal. I do that everytime my wife goes out of town on business.

And he got a five minute break every hour and a fifteen minute break every eight hours.

Please. This is cake.

But wait.

Joachim watched that many hours of NETWORK TV. Ok, that sounds pretty tough.

But not as tough as some of his other records like bowling for 100 hours and standing on one foot for more than 76 hours.

Why does he do it? To raise awareness about suffering children.

I may use that one next time my wife tells me to shut off the tube.

Concentration is important!
