A YouTuber Has Actually Reached The Bottom Of An Excel Spreadsheet

It took him NINE hours.

Ever wondered just how many rows an Excel spreadsheet really has?

Yeah, us neither.

But now a YouTuber from Oklahoma has done the world a favour and spent nine hours at his keyboard to find out that there are 1,048, 576 rows in total.

Hunter Hobbs decided to set himself, what he described as: “The dumbest challenge ever that someone had to do.”

We’re not going to disagree.

The University of Oklahoma graduate also set out some arbitrary rules for himself – no shortcuts, no breaks, and no heavy objects to substitute his finger on the down arrow key.

Hobbs said: “I just wanted to make a challenge that no one else has done.”

With a supply of fruit and energy drinks to aid him in his quest, but no toilet access, this is sounding more like a punishment than an investigation to us.

The video has been viewed nearly 60,000 times since he posted it, and people are already calling it out as a fake (because apparently they would rather watch the nine hours of raw footage than the edited time lapse provided). 

We’ll stick to holding down the Ctrl key thanks.
