    Teen pockets $25,000 in texting contest

    NEW YORK - OMG! Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pozgar, of Claysburg, Pa., was crowned LG National Texting champion on Saturday after she typed "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins" in 15 seconds.

    "I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes," the teen said after winning her $25,000 prize from the electronics company LG.

    Morgan defeated nearly 200 other competitors at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan to become East Coast champion and then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles.

    She estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.

    Takes me 15 seconds just to focus my sight enough to read the letters... >

    When I was at the Vikes/Rams game my cousin sent me a text message that was a couple paragraphs long about where we should meet at the game.
    It took me like 10 min. to write a pathetic response that was about five words long.
    He sent back a reply that was three paragraphs in perfect English in less than a minute.
    I said fuck this and just called him.
    I don't think I could send that many messages in a month on a challenge.

    People that spend that much time texting should have their hands cut off.... or at least a couple fingers to make it harder.
