[Television]
Two teens in Grand Rapids have set the new standard for America's young, by watching 52 hours of consecutive television and are awaiting verification of a new world record... and a year's supply of rice-a-roni.

Geez! Teenageers watching TV for 52 hours straight? And how many have probably already done it, just not in a public place? Personally, if I took shots of Maple Syrup around the clock, staying up 50+ hours would be nothing... It's called a sugar high. Why don't they try to set a record doing something "productive" for 50+ hours and not just watching the "idiot" box!

It's so nice that the boys have the support of their parents in this endeavor. As one parent said, "He has to be good at something." What a relief that their son is good at staring passively at a TV screen while eating pancakes. There are lots of good jobs requiring those skills. Yes, ones with health care benefits, too, for when the diabetes kicks in.
