Kate Moore wins National Texting Championship
 :woop:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31395457/ns/technology_and_science-wireless/

Kate Moore, a 15 y/o from Des Moines Iowa has recently won the Nation Texting Championship. She can text the fastest in all the nation.

I personally wish to congratulate Kate on her amazing performance, and look forward to seeing a texting competition at the next Olympics. And hopefully she'll invest that 50k she won into something responsible like a texting training facility. Teaching other girls, and maybe even boys, some texting techniques would be great for them, and would give them all a huge boost in confidence that they can text with a champion. Texting takes a lot of skill, and a lot of creativity. It's more of an art form really.

I can just imagine her life following the path of other famous champions like René Lacoste.[/center]

"liek omg i m on tv"

i can't stand seeing people just standing there squinting at their tiny phones, furiously tapping out some doubtlessly essential and important message, especially at some important event or social situation.  i just want to suckerpunch that person.

I do not want to read the article. I refuse to. This is "it's been a slow news day, so here's a shitty story for you to read" material.

Please tell me that she did not really win $50,000.

“Let your kid text during dinner! Let your kid text during school! It pays off,” 15-year-old Kate Moore said Tuesday after winning the LG U.S. National Texting Championship.

After all, she said: “Your kid could win money and publicity and a phone.”

if you imagine the number of people that text being number 1 is a big deal a guess. it's kinda like being the best at sitting on your thumb though.

i saw a video of some worlds fastest texter vs some morse code dudes and the morse code won. morse code is cool.

Plus morse code will still work when the bombs drop/aliens come. Where will she be when the satellites fall from the sky like pieces of our broken dreams raining down from heaven?
