The New Boredom

Mah and Newer. Manure.

Dammit, Mavis.

I used to hunt and peck with two index fingers up until maybe 10th grade. For the 8 years before that, I never went by those “home keys” rules or anything. I still don’t really do that and I still look at the keyboard when I type most of the time.I tested myself with some online free things and came up with like 65 wpm copying text on average. I think I’d go faster if I were typing complete thoughts of my own? Well, anyways, take that, Mavis Beacon.

An average professional typist reaches 50 to 70 wpm, while some positions can require 80 to 95 (usually the minimum required for dispatch positions and other time-sensitive typing jobs), and some advanced typists work at speeds above 120. Two-finger typists, sometimes also referred to as “hunt and peck” typists, commonly reach sustained speeds of about 37 wpm for memorized text, and 27 wpm when copying text but in bursts may be able to reach up to 60 to 70 wpm. Some gifted people can type upwards of 70 wpm with two fingers.


We get these American Cinematographer magazines at work for free and I vandalize all the covers when I have time. A recent one had Steve Buscemi on the cover for Boardwalk Empire and I drew this pencil thin mustache on him only to realize I had just drawn John Waters.
