A Whirled Record

Les Stewart created a world record. His world record was typing to one million in words on his typewriter. It took him approximately 16.5 years of typing three pages per day. It was reported he went through seven typewriters, one thousand ink ribbons, and 19,890 pages of paper. The rainforest refused to comment.

He used only one finger while he typed. Initial reports didn't say which one. He is believed to have ten.

Stewart also swam continuously for 30 hours once. He didn't type any numbers or words during the swim.
