Pshh, my sister's talked on the phone for longer than that.
 
2003-04-12 09:17:48 PM  
I bet that's some fascinating stuff. Someone should find that speech and post it on Fark so that we could talk about it and be funny and smart and stuff.

I'm surprized it wasn't a Senator in a filibuster.
 
2003-04-13 01:27:25 AM  
i once made a 37 hour speech. it was very interesting.
 
2003-04-13 01:28:54 AM  
I didn't read this headline past the word Guinness... mmmm

"(he) was permitted to take 15-minute breaks every eight hours to eat and go to the toilet."

BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

He's not the real record holder, he should have to continue the speech while on the toilet.

Booooooo!!!

I think the man should get a Hero tag for being from Zimbabwe and making it this long.
 
2003-04-13 01:29:39 AM  
my speech on friday was a minute under the limit, but the prof still wanted to use it as an example of a good persuasive presentation for future classes.
 
2003-04-13 01:30:06 AM  
one word, which is actually a question that stands on it's own...

WHY?!?!?!
 
2003-04-13 01:32:34 AM  
ONLY 36 hours?!! Jeebus, my ex-wife could go on a rant that would (seem to) last 36 DAYS!!!

*grumble*...amateurs...*grumble*

RobbieFal is SO FREAKIN CORRECT!! And possibly related to T-fal?

Get it? T-fal? The cookware stuff?

I think this guy was my Intro to Philosophy professor back in college...
 
2003-04-13 01:42:20 AM  
The topic was "All The Ways Jokestress Is Cool." They stopped him halfway through.
 
2003-04-13 01:45:22 AM  
good at least strom won't be remembered for being the record now
 
2003-04-13 01:48:37 AM  
Damn, I probably don't even talk 36 hours in a week..
 
2003-04-13 01:54:04 AM  
Dammit, Hytes!! I just laughed so hard I scared the farkin' cat.

God help us all if you ever learn to use colors.
 
2003-04-13 01:55:47 AM  
Oh, and 36 hours, blah-blah-blah, phone, blah-blah, mother, blah-blah, ask about her health, blah.

Anyone but me think that some of the guinness records are just plain stupid?
 
2003-04-13 02:02:22 AM  
Was this John Galt speaking?
 
2003-04-13 02:08:07 AM  
I drank myself into Coors Light and had to take a 36 hour pee.

(it's actually a lie...Coors Light = ewww)
 
2003-04-13 02:12:16 AM  
Help me, i'm stupid, and i'm obsessed with Hyte's semi-random bolding. will someone please tell me what it all means? It's starting to stump my friends Simon and Art.
 
2003-04-13 02:16:34 AM  
The Guinness records are pretty damn cool when you're like 13 years old, but the older you get, they more burst they become. I heard recently, and not so recently, that people who are addicted do not mature emotionally, they just get stuck until they sober up. I think this is why Guinness records hold their appeal in Irish pubs. These lads have been drunk ever since adolescence, and are eternally amused by the same lame stunts.

Let me guess, it was Tom Daschle fillabustering a minority judicial candadite, right?

Uh oh, Tom, we can't allow a minority person who doesn't "think right" (meaning isn't brainwashed into being liberal) to succeed, I mean, that would blow your whole lie that minorities must be dependent upon entitlements from the Left, right?

Was he tested for drugs? Sounds like something Ben Johnson would try to get back in the limelight.

Am Donnerstag, ich esse das Baby.

Ja.

One time I farted for 36 hours straight. It was around the 24th hour when I lost my arsehole somewhere. It floated thru the air like a dandelion seed, and I haven't seen it since.

I'm not sure, but I if I know Hytes' sense of humor then it doesn't mean anything. It's just sort of an unexpected and goofy way to mock the article. Your phrase semi-random would appear to be correct. Sorry to disappoint you 'n' the boys.

I dunno. I thought it was pretty funny. My cat's still pissed, though.

omfg Skinink...this stuff is killin me

(course I'm kinda stoned..)

Wednesday night, I was supposed to talk for five minutes as part of a team presentation.

I wound up babbling for twenty minutes.

I think I failed, and if so, I earned it. I really farked things up for my team.
 
2003-04-13 02:55:16 AM  
How does the bold text mock the article?
 
2003-04-13 03:07:24 AM  
DU BIST KRANK POOP-N-SLOP! WAS DENKST DU AUS SCHEISSA?
 
2003-04-13 03:23:32 AM  
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there supposed to be a preacher mentioned recently on Fark trying to do the exact same thing? ... I'm puzzled.
 
2003-04-13 03:25:07 AM  
The GBOWR is filled with useless information. It's filled with the accomplishments only planned while drunk: "Hey Jim, I think I'm the first guy to puke while talking on a cell phone while standing on one leg, while hopping down the road. I wonder if I can get extra points for distance." Stupid people do stupid things to get in the book... nuff said.
 
2003-04-13 03:28:30 AM  
I could easily give a 36 hour speech on tentacle pron.
 
2003-04-13 03:30:41 AM  
Anti_Freak_Machine
...and GBOWR would eat it up. That's the type of crap that they fill their book with. I can probably get the record for holding my balls while surfing the internet.

Ja, ich bin gyle. Ich habe einen Baby, und ich esse das Baby. Am Montag ich trinken das butter. Ja, ja.
 
2003-04-13 03:49:00 AM  
Ja, ich bin corne. Ich habe ein Baby, und ich esse das Baby. Am Montag, ich trinken der butter. Ja, ja.

It's been a while since grade 10 German.
 
2003-04-13 05:54:40 AM  
Poop-n-Slop: Ja, ich bin corne. Ich habe ein Baby, und ich esse das Baby. Am Montag, ich trinken der butter. Ja, ja

You just said, "Yes, I be corny (corne?). I have a baby, and I eat the baby. In morning, I drink the butter. Yes, Yes.
 
2003-04-13 05:56:25 AM  
...of course, that's a direct translation. If I was possibly fix it up...

"Yes, I'm corny. I have a baby, and I ate the baby. In the morning, I drink butter. Yes, yes."

Ok... there's no way in hell to possibly salvage that...
 
2003-04-13 05:58:59 AM  
Grr... Ok, in reply to my second post, change "If I was possibly fix it up..." to, "If I can possibly fix it up..."
