ChatGPT was asked "What is the world record for crossing the English
Channel entirely on foot?"

It replied: According to the Guinness World Records, the fastest time for
crossing the English Channel entirely on foot is 12 hours and 10 minutes.
This record was set by George Reiff in 2016. The English Channel is a body
of water that separates England from France, and is approximately 35
kilometers (22 miles) wide at its narrowest point. Many people attempt to
cross the English Channel on foot as a [sic] endurance challenge, and the
route is usually completed by either swimming or using a combination of
swimming and wading.

This bovine ordure has been suggested because ChatGPT "hallucinates"!
