World SMS Record

A Singaporean student has set a new world record for writing an SMS message in a time of 41.52 seconds, beating the previous mark of 42.22 seconds set in July by an American.

Ang Chuang Yang, 16, was one of more than 300 competitors to take part in Sunday's SMS Shootout, sponsored by Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel). The Raffles Institution student is now waiting for the feat to be accepted by the Guinness Book of World Records.

If you think you are real good at SMS, try this sentence that was set by Guinness to gauge your SMS speed: “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.”

If you can key in the whole sentence and send it out in less than 41.52 seconds, quickly call up the Guinness Book of World Records.
