    Found this video on Digg the other day. It's pretty cool, that people were this fast at typing long before they had a screen to look at while doing it. Any way you look at it, THIS is freaking fast. It's a wonder he doesn't regularly break the keys right off.

    You might be right... I didn't even notice. Seems kind of obvious, though.

    Sometime last week, brother was watching me do something on the PC, and rather than typing out a serial code for a game we were going to play multi-player, I copy/pasted it into the box. He said, "Wow, you should be on Real People!" (referencing the fact that I "typed" it super-fast), haha. I couldn't stop laughing.
