James Patterson, a 34-year-old unemployed Ohio man, spent 17 hours with his hand over his head in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for longest fist pumping session on Friday. Followed by videographers, he made appearances around Akron's bars until ending his quest at 3 am Saturday morning. Patterson calls himself a fist-pumping "veteran" and even super-glued his hand shut "to ensure I maintain perfect fist formation."
