Khurshid Hussain sets world record for typing with nose

Do you fancy yourself a fast typist? Did you believe yourself to be a Mavis Beacon all-star back in the day? If so, it’s time you familiarize yourself with India’s Khurshid Hussain.

The 23-year-old Hussain recently broke a world record by typing a 103-character sentence in 47 seconds using only his nose.

Yes, you read that right.

(The sentence he typed: “Guinness World Records has challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time.” So meta.)

According to the International Business Times, Hussain trained for six hours every day in order to break the record. If you want to see his skills in action, watch the video embedded below.

Hussain is also pretty quick at typing with his fingers, already owning a world record for typing the entire English alphabet in only 3.43 seconds.

I think it’s safe to say Hussain really nose his way around a keyboard.
