Most people go to great lengths to avoid stepping on their kids' Legos. Not Russell Cassevah, described as a "madman" by ALT 103.7 for what appears to be a (painful) new world record. WAVY reports the Virginia man traversed 120 feet of the sole-puncturing plastic bricks on Sunday, declaring before he started his feat of the feet: "I don't know what I was thinking." His agonizing crossing is shown here, beginning at around 18 minutes in with a test run, with him lamenting he didn't spread the bigger Legos around more because "the smaller pieces that stick to my feet hurt so bad."

The actual record is set starting at around the 37-minute mark in the video, with Cassevah unable to stop at any point if he wants his record to count. He crosses the finish line about one minute and 10 seconds after his start, letting out a primal roar to the camera. "Guinness, we made it," he says (he has submitted the video to the organization for official review). The tootsie torment wasn't just for masochistic personal pride, either: Cassevah did it to help raise money for Fairy Bricks, a charity that delivers Lego sets to hospitalized children. The group had had 2,000 sets stolen from one of its delivery vans in November. (More Lego stories.)
