It does not say if anyone stayed to listen. Does not say if anyone was there to listen in the 1st place.

He obviously likes the sound of his own voice.

139 hours on scientific computations?  I practically started snoring before I finished writing that.

If I was his student, i would be thinking "bonus-nap time".

That equates to over 5 days of solid talking, did he not eat or sleep?

I would have liked to be there for the last few hours or so, bet it would be like the ramblings of a madman!

But the really question is....did anyone learn anything? apart from the obvious.....bring sleeping bags to lectures about scientific computations.

Considering the research indicates that when we are largely passive, as in a lecture format, we have a limited capacity to maintain attention. This would be about 10 to 12 minutes without a change-up of activity to allow for recovery. There are better ways to get tenure and foster sound learning.

I think he would be a potential candidate to prove boredom can indeed kill.

Good question. Sometimes there is no "Why", rather, "What the Hell did I just do"
