Oh yes, I am a machine.

Except that it's been doctored. I really type around 90 words a minute if I really concentrate. On average I type about 75 words a minute. And I use all 10 fingers. How people can type 125 words a minute is a little beyond me.

What I've noticed amongst all those people who have taken this test is that typing speed has nothing to do with writing output. Some writers who type with only three fingers have written much more than I have. And it just goes to show that writing is all about perserverance. You can have 30 fingers, but if you don't sit down and do it, a 1 fingered person will have accomplished more than you.
