Did you know that two guys once flew a Cessna for 64 days, without landing? They apparently
refuelled from a moving pickup truck with a hose
. Did you also know of the monks from Mt. Hiei, Japan who run 900 marathons in 6 years? To qualify, they do 30 km. a day for 100 consecutive days

Now I Know is an email newsletter by Dan Lewis
