    The record is given back to Mark Evans for following the same form of the original record setter.

    I only did this record to show that it was not performed the way you and mark did it as for the record of balancing on finger as i said before the record should go back to Mark Evans .

    Doug you are holding the pencil vertically... at what point is the pencil balanced on ONE FINGER ???! NEVER !! This does not follow the original record and Should be DENIED.

    Slowly-slowly criteria is now changing of real balancing of object and I do not want to blame only one person. So this is the great lesson presented by DOUG MCMANAMAN that any one can break tough Record by using very simple method. Thanks to DOUG Sir for taking such steps.

    So now that we know what happened why not make 2 records .

    Ok, this is no offence to Doug, or anyone else, but this record is now completely ruined. Now instead of someone training hard to balance a pencil on your finger to know holding it with your finger and thumb. Doug, you've done the right thing as you "followed the form of the current world record holder", but pavol ruined what was a difficult and fascinating world record.

    • Australia Demythrate

      Demythrate

      Haha that would be a great competition between us but it will just be an honor if you still broke my records

    • Australia Demythrate

      Demythrate

      But one question Mark how do you record your longer records? My camera only records to 30 minutes then it splits it

  • Wales Mark Evans

    Mark Evans

    • Australia Demythrate

      Demythrate

      Thanks Mark I'm a massive fan of your work. How's the retirement doing for you?

  • Australia Demythrate

    Clearly his thumb is holding the pencil in place with the pencil is on his finger.

    this record should be in a different record tittle regardless weather he cheated or not,when balancing things its easier on the tip of the finger,when we submit records we always state weather its on the finger or on the tip of the finger,if he cheated its up to recordsetters to look back at the evidence and decide,when i balance things i always turn around a bit through out attempts and come nearer the camera sometimes to prove im not cheating,if pavol didnt cheat he could always do it again and beat his on time to prove that he did not cheat many thanks mark

    Sorry, but that looks fishy, Pavol. It looks very strange. I can't buy it.
