Greetings fellow Bizarros:

I seriously thought this would kill a person. An English man broke a Guinness World Record by having a drink at 67 different pubs in a single 24-hour period.

Nathan Crimp, 22, took on the record for most pubs visited in 24 hours, and he ended up visiting 67 pubs in the Brighton, England, area in the space of about 17 hours.

Crimp, who was accompanied by a pair of friends, aimed to beat the record of 56 pubs, which was set by Gareth Murphy over the course of 10 hours in Cardiff, Wales, earlier this year.

"It was easily the hardest thing I've ever done. I completely underestimated just how hard it was actually going to be," Crimp told local news.

"The plan was to try and keep it sober for the first 25 pubs, but that went out the window 15 pubs in. I had to mix it up a little bit, I tried to drink alcohol in one and non-alcoholic drink in another -- trying to space it out," he said.

Guinness rules required Crimp to have a drink at each pub and collect evidence including receipts and witness signatures.

"The hardest part was constantly having to go to the toilet, which took up the majority of the time," Crimp said.

Easy money if you can get it

A Google spokesperson said a nearly $250,000 payment placed in the account of a confused cybersecurity professional was the "result of human error." Sam Curry, a staff security engineer at Yuga Labs and a self-described "hacker," said on Twitter that Google sent $249,999 into his bank account without explanation and he was unable to get a response from the company after three weeks of contact attempts. A Google spokesperson confirmed the payment was an error and said the company is now taking steps to correct it. "Our team recently made a payment to the wrong party as the result of human error," the representative said. "We appreciate that it was quickly communicated to us by the impacted partner, and we are working to correct it."

Here's a good use of time and resources

A Utah company came together at a sports field to attempt the Guinness World Record for the world's largest blanket fort. The event, organized by networking group Tacos Together, Moxie Weighted Blankets and Real Salt Lake, aimed to create a 10,000-square-foot blanket fort Thursday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Lehi. The fort aimed to break the record of 6,736 square feet. Organizers said all of the blankets used in the attempt would be donated to a local homeless shelter. Guinness officials had not yet determined Friday whether the record attempt was a success.
