Michigan Man Breaks Guinness World Record
A suburban Detroit man has leaped past the world record for the most consecutive skips of a stone on water. Officails from the Guinness World Records committee certified Maxwell Steiner's achievement on Wednesday. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas student from Grosse Pointe Woods skipped a stone 65 times in August, surpassing the previous 51-skip record set in July 2007 by Russell Byers.

And for the younger generation who may not know what 'skipping stones' means...here's some information for you courtesy of Wikipedia:
Stone skipping is a pastime which involves throwing a stone with a flattened surface across a lake or other body of water in such a way that it bounces off the surface of the water. The object of the game is to see how many times a stone can be made to bounce before sinking.
