Man balances lawn mower on chin

Pushing a running electric lawnmower for 71 metres is not a difficult thing to do, but try doing that distance not pushing it, but balancing it on your chin.

New Yorker Ashrita Furman broke his existing Guinness World Record for “the farthest distance walked balancing a powered lawnmower on the chin.”

When he finally lowered the grass-cutter to the pavement, Furman had travelled 71.53 metres, easily besting his previous and still-existing record of 20 metres.
