A 16-year-old boy broke the Guinness World Record for speed text messaging this past Sunday.
Ang Chuang Yang of Singapore was definitely “in the zone” when he typed an 160 character message in only 41.52 seconds. The standard phrase used as the sample text in all text-messaging contests apparently is:
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.
In related news, it still only takes 8 seconds to SPEAK that very same sentence.
