Newcastle chef Gareth Kyle set a world record this weekend -- currently awaiting verification from the folks at Guinness -- by cooking non-stop for 41 hours.

Kyle, who took one-hour breaks every 12 hours and didn't sleep at all during the stunt, said being tired wasn't even the biggest challenge: "It was the aches and pains in my back and my legs of actually just being on my feet and cooking for that length of time."

He even got a few tweets off during the event:

A note to the stoned college kid out there staring at his microwave and wondering if putting something in there for 42 hours would qualify as beating Kyle's mark: No.
