Well, I must admit up front, I feel I have not been doing the holidays justice lately…therefore I am renewing my commitment. These sorts of things happen you know, and I want to apologize. I promise to do better in the future.
Now that we got that out of the way. There are world records for the craziest things, I think world records are for people who are looking for their 15 minutes of fame, what would be the point otherwise of driving backwards for 40.38 miles in 5.5 hours in a semi…it is a sad cry for attention if you ask me. Who just wakes up one morning and says, “ya know I was thinking I am going to pull a huge truck by attaching it only to my hair”.
Then there is the guy who “Typed the Most Books Backwards” I am not even sure what this means; did he start at the end and type the last word first all the way to the front, or the last letter first so it would be: “I walked to the store” = “erots eht deklaw I” Does he always read in front of a mirror? I mean that is great that he did that…I guess, but what do you do with those books now? I am baffled.
