Man with way too much time on his hands breaks longest-club record

If this contest is looking for a theme song, I will submit Lamb Chop's "The Song That Doesn't End."

Ashrita Furman, who apparently has nothing better to do than go around breaking meaningless world records - since he holds the Guinness World Record for holding the most Guinness World Records at over 500 - built a driver that measured 18 feet, 5 inches, good enough to break Denmark's Karsten Maas' record of 14 feet, 5 inches, which he set last month.

Check out the video below, where Furman really gets ahold of one and sends it about 82 feet.

Where do we go from here? Do I sense a response from Maas? Perhaps a new challenger will arise? Maybe Furman will try and break his own record just for the hell of it? Oh the possibilities ...
