Please sir, I appear to have lost the will to live

From the BBC:

An Indian has taught a marathon non-stop, no-sleep English grammar class for three days to 60 students in the city of Mumbai (Bombay).

Sanjay Kumar Sinha taught for 73 hours and 24 minutes in an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records for the longest lesson.

Three days? We used to measure out Latin lessons in decades.

I see Mr Sinha also has the Indian record for quickest lesson taught.

I guess the kids who volunteered for him last week were disappointed when they turned up in class to learn that he wasn't trying to better this record but in fact go for the longest lesson.
