According to a news item a Guinness spokesperson said it it is impossible to compare one person's avhievement against another since terrain,climate,walking speed etc would be different.Sounds stupid if you ask me.But it is quite deflating to hear this especially when the nation was willing them on.

Fraud!!! I think it's a black thing. If you can't compare terrain etc. then why have the old record in there in the first place. I would think that it's the feat and the time that would be of essence.
FRAUD.....TIEF....EEEDIAT TING DAT! (I need to go back to common entrance to learn to spell don't it?)
