Fast Thumbs at Timpanogos High

Seems a 18-year-old from Provo, Utah, just set the world record for what’s called “competitive texting.” Ben Cook managed to type out, on a cell phone:

“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.”

That he managed to do this at all impresses me, bcuz whn it cms 2 txt-msgng, im all thmbs. (Or rather, I wish I were.) That he did it in 42.22 seconds — breaking his previous record established while he was a student at Timpanogos High — is astounding. Can commercial endorsements be far behind? (Assuming Ben’s urine tests come back negative, of course.)
