Oh yeah well I can type at about 100 wpm so BAM. We whipped it out, mine's bigger. Anyway I've given up because I am lazy and busy with school.

Nothing like vodka to help the process. Alcohol - Hemmingwy approved for longer then you've been alive.

Ahmet, honestly the fact your Proud of having a 45 wpm typing speed is worrisome to me. I'm 90 accurately, around 110 when I'm in the mood for it/back in practice. Anything under 50 I assume is a practiced hunt and peck (hunt and peck at over 70 is mastery level, and creepy to watch.) I'm sure any font of words you spewed forth in that manner would make as much sense as most of your post, an lovely train wreck of confusion and strife against itself.

http://www.unhooked.com/sep/writers.htm This is a good article about writers and alcohol. It's from 1989 but it's still good. It's the same thing as crazy geniuses (which is referenced in the article); there's about the same incidence of mental illness throughout the entire IQ spectrum. And, similarly, people who go through bouts of alcoholism or mental illness may find it harder to work during these periods. It's a funny thing, being an artist. Maybe it's good and bad.

Also, 32 wpm with only one hand. So Ahmet has some practicing to do.

I had to find a website to clock myself.
100wpm on average.

LR what could you possibly be doing with the other hand while your typing?

Typing? What's that?

I have my computer linked to my neural processors directly.

Unfortunately, I've not the money to spring for WiFi. I'm trapped here.

Clearly pleasuring myself to how sexually exciting these typing tests are. Actually no it's because I often write one-handed while I'm eating. Which might be more embarrassing. I'm not sure.

I often type with one hand because the other is under a blanket and is too warm to want to help.

I didn't want to find a site to check, but I also took into account the amount of time it would take me to stop and think. To literally type nonstop might bring me a much faster time. I'd also like breaks to eat and defecate if needed.

I'm guessing it's just to keep up appearances.
