World's Fastest
Human Conveyor Belt

     On March 3, 2005, Eisenhower Junior High School set a new world record: The World's Fastest Human Conveyor Belt
     To establish the record for the World's Fastest Human Conveyor Belt, one hundred students transferred a mattress weighing 11.4 pounds a distance of 180 feet in exactly two minutes and one second! The rules for this record stated that "During this record attempt, one hundred people must pass a weighted object (at least four feet long and weighing over ten pounds) along a human conveyor belt that is 180 feet long as fast as possible. This weighted object must be passed by people laying flat on the ground who transfer the object as quickly as possible by rolling their bodies in the same direction while avoiding the use of their hands, arms, feet and legs. (Heads and chins can be used to guide the object or keep it on course.) If the object falls off on the ground the attempt fails." Eisenhower's new record for the World's Fastest Human Conveyor Belt was official accepted by The Book of Alternative Records in Leipzig, Germany, on March 24, 2005.
