The Simpsons 500-Episode Marathon Challenge – why am I not doing this?!

Apparently in building up for the show’s 500th Episode airing next weekend (Feb. 19th), FOX is hosting a 500 Episode Marathon for its biggest of fans out in Hollywood that will pit 60 fans drawn at random against some 200 hours of television for a chance at $10 grand and of course, bragging rights that they’ve actually watched every single episode of The Simpsons back-to-back!

Just for comparison’s sake, the current Guinness World Record for continuous TV watched is 86 hours, and the longest science has measured someone going without sleep altogether is 264 hours. But that was back in 1965, and TV has gotten a lot better since then…

Best. Marathon. Ever.
