Here’s a world record worth reporting: a high school teacher used his summer break to row 2,000 miles across the Atlantic in 38 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Bryce Carlson, who teaches at Seven Hills School in Madisonville, OH, crossed the Atlantic alone from Canada to England, topping the previous solo record of some 53 days. 

He told reporters: "I capsized about a dozen times, give or take.  All occurred while I was inside the cabin, most while I was awake, “tailbone pretty badly.” On the bright side, he lost between 10 and 15 pounds.
