Because Americans cannot tell time, a man’s four-day ordeal on a stationary bike is ineligible for the Guinness Book of World Records.
George Hood spent 85 hours riding a stationary bike in January, riding the equivalent of about 1,080 miles, and thought he had bested the existing record of 82.
However, Guinness World Records officials invalidated Hood‘s entry because of record-keeping errors.
About 40 volunteers took turns logging Hood‘s efforts, but they made addition and subtraction mistakes and had trouble reading a 24-hour clock, Guinness officials said.
Expect Bush to pull particulary gifted chronologists off active duty in Iraq and put them on Texas Gym Patrol.
