Sri-Lankan Watches 72 Hours Of One TV Show to Set World RecordS

Suresh Joachim, the same guy that recently broke the record for continuous movie watching, has also broken the non-stop TV watching record with a little help from Jack Bauer and 30 cups of coffee.

That's right, Joachim watched 3 seasons of the TV series 24, to reach the 72 hour mark—beating his previous record of 69 hours and 48 minutes. Although, after watching movies for 123 hours and 10 minutes straight, this feat seems like a walk in the park. Truly, if endurance "athletes" were treated like other high-profile sports figures, we would see Joachim on the Wheates box...eyes half open, pouring coffee over the flakes. [Yahoo]
