So you think you’re a texting speed freak, eh? No matter how fast you think your digits are at poking them smartphone keys, we bet you’re still a slow bro compared to this dude:
Ladies and gents, you’ve just witnessed the record-setting feat of Marcel Fernandez Filho, a 16-year-old dude from Brazil who has just been crowned the fastest texter in the world!
And he did it not by texting “Eow pouhz, wer na u?” or anything more jejemon than that. He typed this nosebleed-inducing sentence instead: “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.” His time: an impressive 18.19 seconds! That’s a quarter of a second faster than the previous record, correct spelling and all!
