I would say give this man a hand, but he probably wouldn't be impressed if you did.

A guy in Illinois named Bryan Bednarek recently attempted to break the world record for fastest clapper.  In one minute, he clapped 804 times.

Guinness is looking into the record to verify it.  The previous record was 721 claps in a minute.

He didn't clap the way you or I would at a concert, so don't think to yourself, hey I'm gonna set a record, because I already tried it and can't come close.  Go ahead, after watching the video see if you can do it

Instead of keeping one hand basically still, and slapping it with the other, he constantly alternates hands and double claps.

I still think if I ever set a record for anything, it will have something to do with eating or watching TV.
