    Thank-you so much Jennifer :) As part of the URDB I feel obligated to present the very best of my efforts (a strong believer in competition against self) and in that I feel I better represent the URDB :)

    This is really impressive! I could tell that this attempt was tough and you showed alot of heart by staying with it as long as you did. Congrats!!

    Yes, there was a simler record, but that record - the record setters were allowed to rest parts of their arms on parts of their body - where as this record the arms must worlk alone to lift the entire body. (I remember seeing a pic. of the one your speaking of-and Dan Rollman wasn't content with the presentation in and of itself, so I wanted to come up with clear criteria/boundaries to supporting one's weight via fingertips.(one which Dan Rollman would have no reservations about) :) )

    Im sure I remember seeing a record similar to this already listed? One of the very first early ones... Will have to check back. Congrats again Darryl.

    Thank-you URDB for the most humble honour, all I can say is ultimately I can only compete against myself - which I find hardest because before each time I already tried my best. * I can only cherish the moment because sure enough another will come to break any one of my records, and all I can truly hop for is that I provided them a good challenge at best. :)
