      I'm writing to you from a wireless connection on a laptop at the
      Rhode Island School of Design in Providence where Ashrita is
      attempting to set a new world record for simultaneously balancing
      eggs. He is here at the Rhode Island School of Design in the Metcalf
      Lecture Hall above the Design Store.

      He was inspired to do it at RISD because he sees it as a type of
      performance art. The current record is 420 eggs.

      From the Press Release:

      "Over the last 25 years, Ashrita, the holder of the most Guinness
      records, has set or beaten a total of 119 records in numerous
      categories. Ashrita's records usually involve a physical challenge
      such as somersaulting the greatest distance (12 miles) or doing the
      most abdominal crunches in one hour (9,628) but in the case of the
      egg record, concentration will be the key. Ashrita expects the
      record attempt to take anywhere from 5 to 7 hours. Needless to say
      everyone in the room will be walking on eggshells until the record
      is broken!"

      He recently set a record in Connecticut for upside down juggling.
      You can read an article about it at the Conn. Post newspaper site:

      Stay tuned!
