A guy named Zach Hample tried to break a world record by catching a baseball dropped from a helicopter 1,000 feet up. Hample wore full catchers gear for safety, as the ball was travelling at 95mph when it reached the ground. After seemingly losing sight of the ball several times, Hample leaned back and made the catch successfully, topping the previous world record of 822 feet. So, He did it, and there's video of it.  So why isn't the record now his? Well, seems as though he forgot one small detail. Making sure someone from Guinness was on hand. So, it doesn't count. Ugggh, I'm telling you man, its those little details that'll always get ya.
