hi i'm ashleeta Furman and I'm the guy who has the most records in Guinness world record book I've been doing this for more than 30 years and I just love Guinness Book I just find so many challenges so many fun things to do in the book I mean some of the more fun records I've done I had one time I pogo stick jumped off Mount Fuji in Japan up to the snow line I've run a marathon the fastest time juggling three balls one time I pogo stick and juggle together on Easter Island the long distance for miles and I'm always looking for new things to do I've been up to a lot of great things since the last time you guys spoke to me I spent last year training on stilts I went up to Machu Picchu on stilts I tried to climb to the top of Machu Picchu on stilts but the federal police surrounded me and forced me get off my stealth so instead I ended up going to California and doing it actually a lot of eating records and for me they're fun because it's sort of like a break from from the more challenging ones and occurrences I just ate the most Marmite in a minute it was pretty horrible made about a half a pound of bar bites and the funny thing was that you know I ate the Marmite and I looked at the rules and I realized that I took the charm off of the counter when I did it and you're not allowed to do that the jar has to stay on the counter so I had to do it again so I ate a pound of Barham I it was horrible um you know do I see myself as an athlete yes at this point I feel that I am an act I mean because one thing is I love you know exercise them I love you know using my body to to transcend limits and I found that I can reach fairly you know high level if I'm if I train hard and and so like some of the records now have gotten to the point where you really you know I think you know that we considered a serious athlete you know um so yeah I guess at this point I do consider myself something that happen I mean I would say the records that I put the most into for the ones that i'm most proud so like for instance there's a record for cutting apples with a samurai sword and you know that record was held by a samurai master you know and so i started from scratch don't have any martial arts pain and it took me a year to get to the point where i can break that record and so i'm very proud of that only because i had to come so far you know to get to it and i don't feel like there's any one thing that's gonna give me satisfaction like that one i have to do and i'll be satisfied i always want to be you know transcending always going after a new goal this world records to me is an incredible opportunity for people to face challenges to to learn about themselves to you know overcome you know physical mental limitations to become creative to really push themselves you know beyond their limits to you know really you know learn more about themselves and get tremendous satisfaction and fulfillment and I mean I'm just very grateful to be a part of it and I'm very honored to be the guy with the most records you
