Yes, that's right, not only was there a text messaging world record, but now it's been broken. Obviously by someone really, really bored or just unable to speak words to other human beings. Whatever the case, Kimberly Yeo, a 28 year old Singaporean business student has smashed—yes smashed, I say—the Guinness World Record, making the new record 26 words tapped into a mobile phone in a stunning 43.24 seconds. And you know what that message was?

"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 includes proper punctuation and all the right upper and lower case letters intact. Bitchin' Kim. The prize was around $10,000, so hats off to the speedy and obviously very quiet lady—who claims she sends an average of 1500 text messages a month.
