The longest recorded telephone call ever!
How many hours in a day do you talk on your phone, 6 hours or 12 ? There may be some, if any at all, who would stay on phone as long as half a day. But can you imagine a conversation on phone which would last almost two days ?
Yes, Avery Leonard and Eric Roff Brewster have managed to keep their telephone conversation lively for almost two days to record their names in Guinness Book of World Records! The longest recorded phone call ended after 46 hours 12 minutes and 52 seconds between Avery and Eric, at Adams Pool Theater, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA!
Think that they must have spent time talking the same coconut tree tale ? Or with just 'yes' or 'no' ? If so, you are wrong! Even a 10 seconds of continuous silence could have disqualified their attempt!
Some of the rule to consider the attempt for Guinness World Record were:
> If there is silence for more than 10 seconds the attempt is disqualified.
> Single word answers like ‘yes’ or ‘no’ do not count as meaningful contributions.
> No two topics of conversation are to be repeated during the attempt.
Both Avery and Eric abided by these rules and it is said that they discussed about 700 topics. Audience were not aware of what was going on in the beginning but later when they came to know about the attempt, their responses were overwhelming.
Thinking of breaking this record ? Well, I think it is almost impossible but remember, Records are meant to be broken!
