    Hey Peter, have you seen my newly introduced record for most weight suspended by fingertips? it was directly inspired by both you, and Brian competing on most books held in 1 hand - let me know if you like the new category. :)

    Thanks Dan! Now I need to try and find some Rola Bola records somewhere... I think someone should post a rola bola record for me to beat... :) I added a sped up "out take" at the end of this clip of my first attempt - the camera fell off the tripod :)

    I've beaten this one for you Brian, I couldn't resist - although your feat still appears more impressive due to the size of your books. I went the technical route and used books of consistent/lightweight each with exactly 100 pages which made it a little easier...
