Indian man sends 182,689 SMS messages in one month

Read this one on Engadget (Technorati's 2nd ranked blog) and was surprised to see this one on the Guinness Book of World Records.Sometimes, I feel people have ample time to do such crazy things but there is no other way to get into the Guiness Records

A small preview of the story:

The person has sent 6,100 messages/day,253 an hour, 4.2 a minute, or a new one every 14 seconds which amounts to 182,689 SMS messages per month.
Now I really feel that mobiles have become very cheap in India and such a record can be created only when SMS'es are free....The question is who was the service provider for this guy?

Utterly ridiculous! I'd be embarassed to be in the book of records with that statistic!

Interesting post though.
