This makes me very sad for people who never learned to type correctly. Fuckspasms, the lot of them.
but they're so cute.. I do think they should use this in High School. Unless you're totally under a rock you've learned most of these words anyway. Statistically crime rates go down when a new GTA is released, and I think that graduation rates would go up with this instead of boring Mavis Beacon typing classes.
You can load whatever vocabulary file you like into this, I bet, so they could scale it to a relatively unobjectionable level for high school students.
A few people I know are mildly astonished that I can talk to them and even turn my head to face them while typing. I'm never sure what to say; typing class was mandatory back in high school, all I had to do was pay attention and practice.
Yeah, I decided to take one of those free typing speed tests and I got 81 which I think is pretty good, but I don't have to do it at work because I work in the field and not in the office like I used to (no offense to people who work in an office setting; I wouldn't be laid out like I am if that was the case). But people also wonder why I just talk to them when I'm playing the piano and that's completely normal, to play the piano and sing at the same time. Or talk, or whatever.
There's a double standard at work here: when I was working arts admin I had people who would take two hours to respond to an angry email, not because we were spamming, because it literally took them two hours to respond to how we weren't spamming, that they signed up for it, etc. So I just went over there and did it for her while she talked to me about what I should say. So the piano makes sense: if you want to be a singer songwriter you better learn how to do this shit or else your band sucks. But if you work in HR or you're even a doctor or a lawyer it's perfectly acceptable to type at 5 WPM and not understand the Software because "WTF Computers! I can do brain surgery but I can't type!"
I used to be about 70-75, but I dropped down to 60 after I got my smartphone. Since there are no tactile cues on a touchscreen, I got accustomed to being sloppy. :( I wouldn't consider myself to be a particularly good typist, even at my best, but yeah, I too get co-workers commenting on my typing. I think it's a generational thing: people older than us grew up without computers, people younger, grew up with shitty-ass touchscreens and auto-complete. We are the Greatest Generation (of typing).
Anyways, it's sad that some people never learned how to type correctly. C-O-R-R-E-C-T-L-Y. Easy. You could probably hunt and peck that in less than three seconds.

I had to stop watching after the guy at 2:54 because watching him just stare at the screen with a dull look on his face made me angry.
They should do another version of this, "Young Kids play Typing of the Dead", only the vocabulary will be drawn entirely from Joyce and Nabokov.

We filmed a commercial at an arcade once, and these two old women were playing the Terminator video game with the two rifle like light guns and laying fuckmurderslaughter across virtual hell's half lightyear. Kentucky women.
