Matthew Shepard busts out 224 vertical fist pumps in 30 seconds, a new world record. Each vertical hand thrust counts as a pump.

He acheived the feat on March 21, 2009 at his home in Waverly, Iowa. Shepard’s friend Justin Illig was present to witness and document the record.


- must extend arm fully for each pump
- must extend fist above head for each pump

    I'm slightly skeptical of this record. Did someone really play PUN off of STING and open the Triple Word Score in such glaring manner? PUN scores 5 points. Trading in tiles would've been smarter, or at least play PUD off of FADES for 7. There are all levels of Scrabble players, but if these players know XI and XU, they should know that PUN (or SPUN) is a horrible play.

  • get ready poppa b and t are comin for ya!

  • you bastards!!!!!!!!!! :p haha this is awesome. pleasure being beaten by you. but be warned, as long as i have fingers and internet access and at least one friend, this record is not safe. while you sleep, i, along with one other person, type, we type like the WIND i tell you!
