Los Angeles, Nov 3 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Some people will do anything to get noticed. The most bizarre of things have been done previously but what Tyler Shields did can only be compared with few of those bizarre incidents. To get to the Guinness World Records book, the photographer, Tyler Shields has allegedly stayed awake for 40 days. His reason for doing that was to prove to the world that just because someone claims a thing is impossible does not mean it is impossible.

Well for his troubles, Tyler’s “record” will not be recognized by the officials of Guinness World Records because they claim the stunt is too dangerous. However the main reason the officials say they will not recognize the stunt is that it is too difficult to prove that someone has been awake for that long.

It seems Tyler feels that that explanation is unfair because he claim that he had a team of monitors around him during the stunt and he also shot some pictures of himself on the last day of the stunt. However it seems Tyler found consolation in the fact that “A lot of people said it was impossible. A lot of people said I would never make it 40 days. Well, I did”. Well done Tyler!
