    An African lecturer has delivered the world's longest lecture after talking non-stop for more than three days.

    But Errol Muzawazi, 20, from Zimbabwe, was talking to himself for the majority of it after his audience fell asleep.

    He talked for 88 hours and four seconds as he lectured on democracy at Jagellonian University in Krakow, Poland.

    Muzawazi was allowed to stop briefly only once every eight hours to go to the toilet, eat a sandwich or take a quick nap.

    DH has the longest lecture in the world! He's really long winded anyhow but when he's lecturering our son, he'll go on for an hour! He'll tell him every story from his childhood whether it had anything to do with the situtation or not. He'll tell the same dang stories over and over and over - it's like the movie "GroundHog Day" - only worse!

    I thought the record was held By FIDEL surely when he corrals the masses & has them stand in the hot sun and harangues He's the world champion !
    My MOM did try to break his record ...but she was much younger at that time....come to think of it wonder if they have a few spanish genes in common? :slap: :razz:
