>>New York Man Plays Q*Bert For Nearly 85 Hours
A New York man is in the record books for playing the arcade video game Q*Bert for nearly three-and-a-half days straight. According to the "Newark Star-Ledger," George Leutz of Manhattan hopped on the Q*Bert unit at Knucklez Arcade Games in Raritan Township, New Jersey on February 14th and didn't end his run until the 18th, when he ran out of "lives." The 38-year old ended up playing a total of 84 hours and 48 minutes on one game credit, beating the old record of 68-point-five hours set last year. Apparently, Guinness World Record rules state that a person can earn five minutes of rest every hour as long as they do not pause the game. That meant every time Leutz needed a bathroom break he had to acquire enough "lives" to keep the game going.
Leutz says he played the game one handed so he could eat and drink at the same time. He says he was able to break the record because Q*Bert is the game he was good at when he was a kid. This was his fifth time attempting the record.

Roberts had a bone marrow transplant last September. She told her audience this morning that she's thankful and a bit relieved to be back to work on the network's top-rated morning show. Doctors believe Roberts came down with the disorder when she was being treated for breast cancer several years ago.
