    Thanks Dan! I tried a bunch of different ways of speaking to see what felt the best, then about 5 serious attempts after that before I got it.

    Cool category, and great attempt. Mike, how many attempts did you take to achieve this?

    Please do Peter. I got really frustrated with myself for not being able to beat Ben with 9 attempts.

    When I suggested this record I was curious to see how far it could go. Comes down to speech speed and mostly lung capacity I guess. My PB is 109 - will have to shoot some video :)

    This is very impressive. I tried to beat it 9 times but failed.
