"It was winter break and I was bored"


Reina Hardesty,
a 13-year old Californian with fingertips of steel, has managed to send 14,528 messages in a single month.

Her dad got a 440 page AT&T statement as a result, and just didn't believe his eyes. "I immediately whipped out the calculator to see if it was humanly possible," said Greg Hardesty.

Here's what the calculator says: it works out to 484 messages a day, roughly one each two minutes of each hour his daughter was awake.
