    Text Message King Wins Again

    DENVER (AP) - July 31, 2006 - Tell Ben Cook he's all thumbs and he'll take it as a compliment. The Utah teen is once again the speed text-messaging king of the world. His thumbs flew through a 160-character standardized message in a little over 42 seconds. The text contains words that aren't just tough to type but difficult to pronounce as well. The text-off was sponsored by Jump Mobile and will be submitted to the Guinness record people. The 18-year-old Cook had set a world texting record in 2004, but lost it to a young woman from Singapore.

    I would love to have a completely useless talent could that I could to compete in. Unfortunately, all of my talent is completely useful and there are no competitions to enter.

    My phone is pretty fast, you just have to get used to how your phone works then you can get faster. My mom always yells at me for texting like a really long text while I'm not looking at my phone and it doesn't take me that long. It works good for when I'm at school haha

    It might take her a while. Esp since she can't use her camera phone and text at the same time.

    No camera, just phone cameras around here. I could text on my phone and use my mom's phone to film it.... hmmm.. And If I can't beat the record, I for sure know some kids that could get pretty close.

    Well, which is it? Can you or can't you? Perhaps you spoke a little too soon?
