This sentence was about 1,700 words long!!
... Only one person actually read the whole sentence out (it took
about 6 minutes).

** Hmm, six minutes at sixty seconds a minute,
three hundred sixty seconds for 1700 words...
1700 divided by 360 is 4.7222...

Close to five words a second?
Golly, it is time to tell the people at Guinness.
