World Record: Fastest SMS

Friday, November 19, 2004

A high school kid in Utah. USA broke the world record for fastest text messaging yesterday (again!), key-pressing the official sentence provided by Guinness to judge these things. ”The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human" (no predictive text or QWERTY keyboards allowed). He keyed this on his mobile in just 57.75 seconds. I've tried this using my mobile and had trouble remembering the spelling of PYgocentrus and Serrasalmus hahaha.. took me a little over 3 minutes to complete the sentence. Give it a try and see how you go. ;)
