    This record is currently in the number four spot, which is great, especially considering that my son is at the top spot and I'm at number two with a juggling record. However, I don't think people realize the extreme difficulty of balancing something this tall outside. Not only do you have to deal with the wind, you also have to squint from sunshine in your eyes. This record took years of practice to achieve, while some other of my records on here took one time to break the previous record. Just thought some might be interested in relative difficulty and background.

    That's how I submitted it and titled the video. The rules do say it must be outside.

    Then I suggest we should rephrase the title to "Tallest Object Balanced On Chin Outdoors"

    Not outdoors. Much harder with the wind.

    Hey David...look's like this record has been beaten before at 64.5 feet. Bummer.
