Ashrita Furman is the greatest record breaker of all time. Since 1979, the store manager from Queens, New York has set 350 world records. The Guiness Book of World Records was his ‘bible’ growing up, and his obsession with reading about these people achieving new things set a path for his life of record breaking. Don’t get me wrong, some of the records are just down right ridiculous, but just thinking that would be missing the point entirely. What’s so brilliant about this man is the satisfaction and happiness he gets and spreads to everyone he meets simply due to his ambition to try and accomplish new things. Life lesson, I say. Watch this joyful documentary made by film maker Brian McGinn after the cut.
