After checking with the center's information desk, the tent was erected for a contest. Three days ago on Dec 2, one hundred dedicated fans of the show began an attempt to break the Guinness World Record of 86 hours for the longest, continuous television viewing, in this case while watching "24." The last alert person with his or eyes on the screen wins $10,000.

You may think this is crazy but think about your all time favorite series. Would you be willing to stay awake to watch you favorite show for just as long for $10,000 with bathroom breaks of course? One curious thing. How do you prepare for such a contest? Perhaps stay asleep for four days prior to the contest start.
Dec 6, 2010 Update: Three fans broke the Guinness record of consecutive television viewing at 86 hours 6 minutes and 41 seconds. Each won $10,000.
