haven't you people ever heard of coasters?
A 42-year-old American has claimed an unofficial endurance record for roller coaster riding. Richard Rodriguez (photo) rode a roller coaster at a German amusement partk for 102 straight days, at least 10 hours a day, more than 220,000 times, breaking his own record of 100 straight days.
Although Rodriguez took too many breaks--five minutes per hour--to qualify for the famed Guinness book, his feat was monitored by a team of doctors, who checked his heart rate to gauge the effect of mechanichal stress on his body. Park workers kept Rodriguez supplied with coffee and schnitzel, and his record attempt eventually became an attraction in itself.
