When I read about Great Britain’s Richard Scott this morning, a solid memory of my childhood TV watching came back to mind. It was the episode of “The Brady Bunch” in which “Bobby” and “Cindy” set about attempting to set the world’s record for the teeter totter. Remember this?
Now back to Richard Scott. He started swinging on a swing set at 6:10 Saturday morning and 36-hours later, had set the record for longest swinging session. The previous record was 34 hours. He was allowed a five-minute break for each hour spent on the swing, and he saved up his breaks to take a nap at 3am. Oh, and unlike the Brady kids, Richard Scott is a grown, 51-year-old man! 😉
