World Records You Can Break On Your Lunch Hour

Count to 3. Why you could’ve typed the whole alphabet by now, usurping one Mohd Khursheed Hussain who achieved the feat in 3.43 seconds. And why exactly?

As the infographic below highlights, use procrastination wisely and much like Olympic sprinters and old men found in remote villages sporting ridiculously long beards, you too could become a world record holder – all on your lunch hour.

Along with the Indian speed-typist’s alphabet achievement, others noted in the graphic by Chairoffice.co.uk include the fastest time to eat a 12” pizza (41.31 secs), longest time to spin a basketball on one finger (10.33 minutes), and most spoons balanced on a face (17). So just a normal lunch break then...

Oh, and Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz – needless to say Hussain can rest easy.
