Indian man sends 182,689 SMS messages in one month

This is a pretty silly Guinness Record; you’ve gotta read this.

Engadget reports that an Indian man, Deepak Sharma, went on record with the Guinness Book for having sent the most SMS messages in a single month: 182,689. We’re not sure if that’s total, or unique messages, but if you’d like us to break that down for you, that’s about 6,100 messages a day, 253 an hour, 4.2 a minute, or a new one every 14 seconds or so.

So basically this guy gave up a month of his life sending texts—way to go, dude. His other reward? A 1,411 page bill (don’t worry, he has an unlimited texting plan)—compare that to, say, Joyce’s Ulysses (speaking of Guinness books… aw come on!), which is a mere 780 some-odd pages, though every bit as difficult to read through.

Update: Deepak Sharma aims to increase the number to 300,000 in the coming month.

Crazy…isn’t it?
