    Hello Everyone John Evans is the headbalancer record holder and the rules for the last 24 years are items have to be lifted off a supporting lift carried on the head for at least 3 meters then hands must come of and the person has to balance the item hands free for over ten seconds also all the weight as to be above the head not on a barr hanging down see www.headbalancer.com jones tried this a few years ago and failed he is changing rules for headbalancing records if he wants to do this he should make new rules up which say he can stay under the safety of lifting apparatus and keep his hands on the bar with the weight not on top of his head but dangling on a bar below his head. that's what I have to say John Evans

    hello Mr Remarkable Man I love your accuracy and precision to the rules. I write specific rules myself but recordsetter always changes them to fit their needs. This is why I'm leaving because recordsetter doesn't really care about the record setters in my opinion it is all about advertising to them & making money. I love all your records Mr. Jones!
