Man breaks record for watching TV

Suresh Joachim broke the Guinness world record for the longest time spent watching TV. He finished Friday with 69 hours and 48 minutes.

After passing the previous record of 50 hours and 7 minutes Thursday, Joachim continued until shortly after 7 a.m. Friday morning (EDT).

I wonder what the record for playing video games is? Probably would not want anyone in South Korea to try for that record, those people seem to be dropping dead left and right from playing video games non stop.

We in Czech Republic aren't Koreans, but in one recent games mag sponsored contest, the clock stopped at about 54h, which is quite insane.... No deaders, though :).

I would say that 54 hrs. is pretty insane. And I really don't understand why the Koreans drop dead (in less then 54 hrs. no less) but there have been a number of such reports.
