160-character text message in two minutes?
An Ohio girl won $5,000 this week by typing out a 160-character text message on a cell phone in two minutes, 23 seconds.
Troy Field, 17, had hoped to set a world record with her flying fingers, but fell short of the goal set by competition sponsor Alltel. A woman in Singapore holds the record at 43 seconds.
For the competition, the five finalists in the contest had to write out:
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.
Yeah, this is nuts. Just try it on your own. I mean holy crap these guys must be fast. I wonder what phone they require them to use? Can it be anyone they choose? Do they use T9? Hmmm... regardless, its fu*kin hard to write those two sentences. Article here.
