    To answer your Question Curiousmatt i can see the tape and as there was no camera man i had to turn around so you could see the tape it reads236.50 inch. as for standing on one foot my foot is floating above the deck at all times. If you would like to extend the record i would gladly try to take it back .thanks Doug.

    What? We couldn't even see the tape measure and you blocked the camera before showing it (and no offense, it looked like your arm was moving, while blocking the camera)

    Look right at 1 second. You can see his right knee bent under him. He did one 20 inches past this so I can resubmit if you REALLy don't believe.
