Peter Craig Sets World Record for Longest Active E-mail Address

Gmail

According to his website, Peter Craig holds more world records than any other Australian. Spinning, clapping, one-legged jump roping -- you name the weird record-setting feat, and Craig's probably done it. He's also, it turns out, the proud owner of a Wagnerian e-mail address which, at 345 characters, is the world's longest -- according to the URDB. And it works, too. So go ahead and drop him a line of congratulations at:

Fortunately, as Craig acknowledges, this is one record that seems made to be broken. [From: URDB, via: LaughingSquid]
