"Man breaks record for continuous TV watching"

I thought, wow, I bet the guys been watching tv for seven years straight or something. Nah, only 69 hours 48 minutes. C'mon. That's with breaks to go to the bathroom. The "official rules": Rules for the couch potato honor, as stipulated by Guinness, allow for a 5-minute break every hour and a 15-minute break every 8 hours. The viewer must otherwise be constantly looking at the screen. Only 69 hours? That's nuttin'! I'm betting this one gets beat soon. Heck, I think I broke it several years ago when I was depressed.
