Meet Khurshid Hussein, The World’s Fastest Nose Typer

Hunting, pecking, sniffing

The skills section of most people’s resumes is a snooze: Skilled in MS Office. HTML proficient. Conversational Swedish. Khurshid Hussein has one amazing skill to add to his resume, though: World’s fastest nose typer.

Hussein just set a new Guinness World Record for typing with his nose a.k.a. hunting and pecking on a keyboard with his schnozz.

To test his impressive, if odd, skill, Hussein correctly entered a 103-character sentence in just 47.44 seconds. To understand how challenging and spectacular that stat is, try tweeting with your nose and see how well you do.

Hussein’s nose-typing feat decimated the old record of 1 minute, 33 seconds, meaning not only does Hussein have a fun party trick, but he now gets the plaque to prove it.
