It's a new day in the world of backwards spelling! An Indian man by the name of Shishir Hathwar now holds the world record for spelling words backwards! Shishir managed to spell 50 English words backward in a minute and 23 seconds!
In the clip below, you can watch as Shishir is read words, which he then spells backwards at an insane rate. Both the reader and the speller have heavy accents, but the words he spells in this clip are: saturate, vagabond, approval, excavate, bankrupt, acerbity, standard, follicle, tapestry, appendix, confront and placenta.
In all, there were 20 six-letter words, 15 seven-letter words and 15 eight-letter words. Amazing! A useless skill, but still amazing!
