Mohammed Khurshid Hussain, 23, of India has broken the record for fastest nose typing on a computer keyboard. According to the article in the Huffington Post, he was able to type the sentence “Guinness World Records have challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time”. He beat the previous record of one minute and 33 seconds, set in 2008 by Neeta, also from India with his time of 47.44 seconds.
It may take up to four months for Hussain’s record attempt to actually be certified by Guinness adjudicators, but in the meantime he will continue to try to beat his own time again. He already bested his own score of 54 seconds from a few months ago.
I’m glad this man has found something to occupy his time. Although this is probably not the most useful record that could be earned, it still is a Guinness World Record, and I applaud his diligence in not only setting the record in the first place, but continually trying to beat his own time. He is obviously very passionate about nose typing, and in fact, typing in general considering he also holds the record for fastest (finger) typing of the 26 letters of the English alphabet, with 3.43 seconds. Hussain must spend a lot of time in front of the computer.
Until next time, and thanks for reading!
