High School Typing Class

Das Keyboard - The Blank Keyboard for Demanding Users.

They should have had this in my high school typing class. I had a lot of fun in that class. Actually, probably too much fun. I started out at 23 word/minute using a full page typed over a minute for testing. During the class, I made it up to 60 words/minute, using a sentence typed repeatedly over a minute. I memorized the sentence and stared at the keyboard. The final test was the full page test again.

20 words/minute.

But I did learn the important fact that one of those typing pencil-style erasers can be sent across the room if placed into a manual typewriter just so and the H key struck hard.
