Man Walks his Way to New Record while Balancing Baseball Bat on Chin

Showing off a skill that would make him great at passing field sobriety tests, an Idaho man has walked his way into the Guinness World Records book.

David Rush, who already holds more than 200 Guinness records, added another over the weekend when he walked around a Boise track for 41 minutes, 30 seconds – a total of 2.236 miles – while balancing a baseball bat on his chin, according to Guinness officials.

Rush, who performed the stunt to promote STEM education, beat the old record by 1.86 miles, per Guinness.
