262. New World's Record


The standing world record for the most people hugged by one person in a hour is 765.  Alan Baltis broke the record with 833.   This was at the Annual Gathering for American Mensa in Denver, Colorado.  I'm mentioning this here, because I was one of the people who helped him set the new record.  After receiving my hug from him and getting my hand stamped (so that no one gets counted twice), I went to the hotel lobby to send down more people.  The Guinness people are looking at the videotape of the event before declaring it a new record.

Comments:
How satisfying is a hug that lasts only one-thirteenth of a second?
 
oh, wait,
It's thirteen per minute. Almost four seconds per hug. Hmmmm.
One potato, two potato, three potato. . .
I guess that's pretty decent.
Still, I would want about seven seconds worth.
 
Actually, considering the time limitations, he was a pretty good hugger.
