Record-breaking kiss

The world record for the longest kiss was broken on this past Valentines in Pattaya, just south of Bangkok. The kiss lasted for two and a half days and if you want to be specific it was 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds. The new record defeated last years by over 8 hours. Talk about setting the bar high.

A kiss lasting nearly two-and-a-half days propelled one determined couple to a new record for the world's longest smooch on Valentine's Day, organisers said Friday.

Hospital security guard Ekkachai Tiranarat, 44, and 33-year-old housewife Laksana locked lips for 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds in Pattaya, on Thailand's Eastern Seaboard, smashing last year's Guinness World Record by more than eight hours.

The romance of the clinch may have been marred by competition rules requiring contestants to remain on their feet throughout, slurp food and liquids through a straw and even go to the toilet while continuing to press their lips together.
