[March 21] NEWQUAY, Cornwall,UK--Ed Byrne, 40, has set a new world record by breaking 55 concrete blocks with his bare hands in 4.86 seconds.

     Im thrilled, said the dad-of-three. I used hypnotherapy and pictured breaking the slabs. The crowd really helped, too. But I might have a red hand for a few days!
