    OMG girl from Des Moines wins National Txting Contest

    That's text-erity: Iowa girl all thumbs, wins national title - CNN.com

    Kinda sad that txting is becoming a competition, but there were some funny parts to the article

    The fourth place finisher "Rowe failed to accurately text "Which wicked witch wished which more wicked witch in the well?" while a human emoticon talked trash about her sister." I wonder if it was jimlad?

    Also the interview at the end, while rather sad... is kinda funny (Yes, she granted an exclusive txting interview with CNN )


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    It'll probably be a new course in Phys Ed in a few years.

    They can have them run the txting obstical course

    I'd say they'd have the trash talking emoticans, but that'd be harassment and bullying

    Re: OMG girl from Des Moines wins Natoinal Txting Contest

    I caught the middle of an interview (texting the alphabet with a blindfold on) with her on the Today show (or one of the other network morning shows). Didn't realize she was from DSM.

    Re: OMG girl from Des Moines wins Natoinal Txting Contest

    Good God, I literally spent 12 hours in the car on vacation texting the entire time and could barely fire out 500. That's her normal day.

    I don't think I've ever done more than 1,000. Now that I can text Verizon for free I text more but I can't imagine firing that many texts out.

    What is so important to say that many times a day?
