Uh, mebbe 10 minutes is exxagerating, and you seem to enjoy making above-average-size-posts (happy now, not "big", but "above-average-size-posts").

And I highly doubt that DFD can do 200 WPM.

Not to me, I hope. If you did, I'm afraid I'd have to fire you. Wink

Okay, from a recent post on GH, this is his typing speed:

average: 100
top: 250

Then why doesn't he have a multi-grillion $$$ job as some big secretary or sumptin.

I'm skeptical as to whether he did 250. It's pretty muc impossible.

My mom, who actually spent 2 years learning how to type and is an expert at it, goes ~95-100 normally. Definetly posible.

Oh, by the way, I interviewed a court reporter two years ago. She typed at the average of 275 WPM.

What DFD says could be true. Of course, this court reporter has to type super fast all the time, and has been typing that fast every other day for the past 5 years.

For anyone who likes sci-fi I suggest to read Stanislaw Lem's books. They're good. I have read almost them all. (Now I'm reading the last one (of those I know...))

EB posted this on the other page, but I've read it now: Ender's Game. It's just, plain cool. Orson Scott Card is so talented - read anything from him, but especially EG.

Inside the sky by William Langweishe is a good book, explores the psychological effect flying has.

Well the Lem's last book was suprisingly so crappy I decided to leave it there. But all the others were good.

BTW one of Lem's books is Solaris, and there has been made two movies out of it... Though the second and newest was just bullshit!

Tom Clancy is good, but not THAT good. Some of his non-fiction is pure s*** (Into the Storm) while other non-fiction is good (Shadow Warriors). Haven't read all the fiction, but Clear and Present Danger was good, although the movie sucked.
