Teen Breaks Blindfolded Texting Record

Elliot NichollsA world record's been set in Dunedin for speedy texting.

While it's yet to be ratified, 17-year-old Elliot Nicholls could find his name in the Guinness Book of Records for being the world's fastest texter.

With fingers flying, Nicholls texted "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."

And if that sounds easy then you should know that Nicholls did all that without looking at the screen, in 45 seconds, and correctly.

"I know it's going to be pretty hard to beat now, with 45 seconds, so I'm really happy, really happy," says Nicholls.

He says if someone else does beat the record he might try it again, but for now it's back to being a normal 17-year-old and hitting the books for exams.
