Looks like someone's spent WAY too much time playing Galaxian

Gary Whelan

The BBC writes:

A man who has spent at least two hours a day practising on a vintage video game for the past 25 years has secured what he says is the highest ever score.

Gary Whelan, of Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, has been playing the space invaders game, Galaxian, since 1980.

He said he had set a world record of 399,290 points, beating the previous record held by a Californian.

Mr Whelan said he would not stop playing until he had reached at least a million points.

Playing Galaxian two hours a day for 25 years with no drugs involved whatsoever. This guy deserves respect.
