Toronto resident Suresh Joachim has watched 72 hours of TV straight — three seasons of Fox’s 24 in a row — to break his own Guinness world record for “nonstop broadcast-television watching. “I feel fine, I drank between 25 and 30 cups of coffee,” Joachim said Sunday after the feat in Stockholm, Sweden, according to the AP.

Um… nice work if you can get it?
