The News Cut editorial board (me and the dog) is split over whether it’s a good idea to spend even one minute of your life doing relatively pointless things. Take Jim “Mouth” Purol, who is trying to set a world record (kept somewhere) by sitting in all 92,542 seats at the Pasadena Rose Bowl.
As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, MSNBC reported, the 56-year-old Anaheim resident had sat on at least 30,000 seats after starting his mission Monday morning.
“I’ve been wanting to sit in the Rose Bowl’s seats for over 20 years, but I kept getting turned down by the city of Pasadena,” Purol said. “They thought it was dumb.”
It’s not all dumb. Purol is raising money for Outward Bound.
He’s got an assistant keeping him hydrated and “facilitating the continuous interviews with the media.”
