Time to Kill???

Les Stewart from Mudjimba, Australia, holds the world’s record of typing all numbers from one to one million in words (not numbers). He began in 1982 and finished with the entry "one million" on November 25, 1998.

The feat took him seven manual typewriters, 1000 ink ribbons, 19,890 pages, 16 years and seven months to complete - he finished with the lines "nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine, one million." Way to go Les!
