Frenchman speaks nonstop for 124 hours to set speech record 4 hours ago PERPIGNAN, France (AFP) — Frenchman Lluis Colet broke the world record for the longest speech after rambling nonstop for 124 hours about Spanish painter Salvador Dali, Catalan culture and other topics. The 62-year-old Catalan and local government worker spoke for five straight days and four nights to set the record in the southern French town of Perpignan. Three notaries were on hand to recognise the feat which allows Colet to enter it in the Guinness Book of Records. The previous record was held by an Indian man who delivered a 120-hour speech. Colet began speaking at Perpignan's railway station on Monday by reciting the works of famous authors or using some of his own writing. He also spoke profusely about Dali, a painter he admires, and Catalan culture. Large crowds turned out in support of Colet, who received a rapturous applause at the end of his speech. "This is a big day for me and I dedicate this record to all those who defend Catalan language and culture," he said, his voice fainter after five days of nonstop talking. Colet had set the record once before in 2004 when he spoke for 48 straight hours.


Lol I wonder if anyone's going to put the speech to paper.

I'm surprised it wasn't an Asian. Probably because they are too efficient to waste time talking for that long.
#6
Do you think he repeats any of the stuff he said?
Even after an hour of talking I tend to run out of stuff to say
#7
I've heard longer speeches. They usually start with "Oh! And let me show you pictures of the kids..."

I lol'd. Well, not actually 'lol'd', but found it amusing. It is a generic stereotype, but not one I've ever found all that offensive. I'm not Asian though.

His statement seems more like a compliment to Asian people. I would love it someone told me that I used my time efficiently.

Awake? How did he eat/poop/pee/drink while talking? I mean to talk without stopping means he had to **** and be speaking as every single poo comes out. AND he had to talk with his mouth full.

well, he could probably take sips of something here and there....probably coffee to help with the awake thing....

...as far as poop/pee, I'm not too sure on that one.....maybe he WAS Asian and is just highly efficient that way
