Phbbbt.

I can hold my right hand behind my back and still type "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis"


I was waiting for some doof to pull this, but I wasn't anticipating it would be you.

Actually type, not just hit the keys with whatever fingers are free at the time. You know, with your fingers on the asdf jkl; and your thumbs on the spacebar. People still learn how to type in school, right?
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

DYK,

that in my school, I learned to type, but now type with a completely alternative yet somehow thoroughly efficient pattern?

Also, DYK that the Qwerty keyboard was invented to make typing actually go slower?

Yes I did. The old school typewriters would jam if you went too fast.

Supposedly there is a setting in windows where you can switch the keyboard to the old system. You just have to pop off and rearrange the keys on your keyboard.

Did you know?

The White House, the official home of the US President, was once burned to the ground by British troops. In 1814, during the three-year war between the US and Britain, soldiers from the UK briefly occupied Washington and set the building ablaze.

British troops....Yeeeeeah.


British troops who lived in CANADA, and wee therefore Canadian.


It's OUR glory, don't steal it.


I am aware that Canada was a colony of Britain in 1814, but it still remains that troops from Canada burned the White House.
