I wasn't joking when I was talking about the world record. Yesterday I had to fax an 8-page signed contract to the Guinness World Record headoffice and now I get to wait 4 to 8 weeks while they go over my application. Once it's processed they'll send me the whole package of current official rules that I have to follow during my recordattempt. Most likely there will have to be two independent witnesses and a person with some kind of medical degree present at all times, but no longer than 4 hours straight. Which means I will probably going to need a whole bunch of people in jobrotation. And the witnesses must have SOME kind of high standing in the community (lawyer, councilman, newspaper-editor). And everything that happens must be logged. Witnesses and medical staff have to sign in and out. My breaks must be logged and if possible the whole attempt should be filmed. No sidekick allowed, no help allowed in selecting music....

Talk about a major undertaking!

One of the DJ's who did an attempt a couple of years ago even went as far as installing a portacabin-shower with waterproof microphone in his studio so he could stay clean while presenting. Gotta give him credit for creativity. Bending the rules as far as possible :)

But I repeat: no date has been set yet, no one has been contacted, this is all still investigative action. But MAN, wouldn't it be cool if I could at least pull off the attempt, regardless of the result?

Unfortunately my dear, you are a friend of mine, thus not independant/unbiased.
