…The world record for SMSing has been broken?

    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.

How fast could you text message that to someone? If you can do it in less than 41.52 seconds, you may be a world record contender. Sixteen-year-old Ang Chuang Yang recently set a new Guinness World Record for shortest time needed to type that 160-character SMS message, beating the previous record of 42.22 seconds by American Ben Cook. What’s Ang’s secret? Use a mobile phone with larger keys on the dial pad. A simple strategy, yet one that is so often overlooked in the world of SMS messing competitions. Following the victory, Ang was awarded the official spokesperson position for Band-Aid blister treatment.
