Longest picnic table ever

Alex James, lead singer of the band Blur, stands atop a 90-meter-long picnic table constructed outside London's City Hall on May 25.

In addition to setting the official world record for the longest picnic table, organizers also treated passersby to a free lunch. James held the honor of officially measuring the table, which established the honor in the Guiness Book of World Records.
