Watermelon Thump Luling Texas - Guiness Book of Records Watermelon Seed Spit Record (http://www.watermelonthump.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=55&Itemi d=1 - broken link)

The Guiness Book of Records Watermelon Seed Spit Record shot the seed 68 feet 9 1/8 inches from the starting line. The championship waterment spit record was set in 1989 by Lee Wheelis. Luling offers hundreds of dollars in cash prizes to anyone who can beat the record during the Thump Spitting Competition.

How can you spit a watermelon seed 68 feet??? If I could do that I'd deserve far more than "hundreds of dollars"!!!

Well, pardon me for a minute while I drag out my already worn copy of Texas Monthly (which by the way I would never be without a subscription to)...I need to check out that diagram....
