In his relentless quest to achieve eminence through hyper-specialization, Dr. Ross D. Martin, MD, MHA, FACMI*, President, Founder and Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatimusicology (ACMI), has been officially recognized as the world record holder in over-the-thumb pen spins in one minute, completing an astonishing 48 spins in a minute on August 26th, 2008, hereinafter known officially as Dr. Ross "Pen Spinmeister" Martin Day. A video of this monumental achievement can be found at the Universal Record Database website at http://urdb.org/wr/over-the-thumb-pen-spins-minute.
Dr. Martin is equally proud of his son, known to the blogosphere as RobotBoy2001 for setting several records on that very day, one of which has been officially recognized by the officials at URDB: Most bounces on BOSUs by Two Boys in One Minute. Other RobotBoy2001 records are currently under review.
Greatness clearly runs in Dr. Martin's family. Someday, perhaps, his son will follow in his footsteps and become a great informatimusicologist like his father. The world waits with great hope and anticipation for that day and will rejoice should it come...
