Bizarre! Belgian man attempts to set Guinness record for longest toilet use

What will you do to get your name in the annals of history?

One man’s idea was to set the Guinness record for the longest toilet break in history.

Jimmy De Frenne of Belgium attempted the feat and challenged himself to sit on a toilet set up for 165 hours but gave up after 116 hours.

The toilet set up was in the middle of a bar, Filip’s Place, which remained open to customers throughout the attempt. This allows De Frenne to chat with his friends and family. He also has the use of his and enjoyed hearty meals during the period.

And in a kind of twisted irony, De Frenne was allowed toilet breaks during his attempt because the one he is using was not connected to any actual plumbing. He could also have 5 minutes every hour to stretch his limbs.

The feat was not as easy as it looked. De Frenne said his legs eventually began to hurt and that he got tired.

I was very tired and my legs hurt but I believe in my success and try to make this record official,” De Frenne tells Reuter Television.

And the humour is not lost to him either.

Self-mockery is the best humour there is. Why am I doing this? Why not? There is nothing I like more than people making fun of me because then I can do the same with them,” the attempter says.

Meanwhile, there is no official world record for the sitting on a toilet but De Frenne said he had discovered someone else had done it for 100 hours before.

De Frenne said Guinness World Records was aware of the record attempt and that local officials and witnesses were making checks to validate it.
