Simpsons Fan Attempts to Break World TV-Watching Record

Human ambition expresses itself in myriad ways. Some people climb the highest mountains or journey into the unknown. Others build technological marvels or discover the wonders of science. But perhaps the greatest among us sit around and watch TV all week.

Such is the dream of Glyn Stott, a Simpsons fan from Merthyr Tydfil, UK, who hopes to be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for watching all 451 episodes of The Simpsons, back to back, without resting:

His six-day feat will be overseen by officials to ensure he does not fall asleep.

Mr Stott, from Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, said: "I'm a huge fan of the show and I've seen every episode but watching them continuously for almost a week will be a feat of endurance.

"The judges have to make sure my eyes are firmly fixed on the screen – I have to be seen to be concentrating all the way through."

The current record for non-stop television watching is four days, set by an American viewer.
