I copied a bunch of stuff I said in a Facebook chatlog and checked the informal side.

Code: Select all

Genre: Informal
  Female = 611
  Male   = 530
  Difference = -81; 46.45%
  Verdict: Weak FEMALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.
Tea and crumpets are starting to sound kind of good, so this revelation may be unlocking my inner Brit.

Test how fast you're typing here:

My best is like 75 words per minute. I can't imagine how those who's time is above 100 words per minute can type that fast.

I got 97 WPM with zero errors (I corrected all typos before moving to another word)
I'd mostly attribute that to my very good mechanical keyboard, I love that stuff. Feels otherwordly and definitely has a better response.

The funny part is, I don't even type with all 10 fingers... :p (unless using my right pinky purely for holding down shift counts)
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.
