See how fast you can type

Words Per Minute

Back in university I took a typing class (I needed the 1 credit) and I ended up breaking the university record with 77 word per minute (deducting the mistakes). The teacher used to hate me but she couldn’t do much since I just kept typing faster then any of her other students.

Anyway found this cool site that tests how fast you type. I just got such a rush from this since and I am currently pumped full of adrenaline.. I love trying to type as fast as possible I don’t know why. The stupid thing with this test though is that if you make a mistake you HAVE to fix it or else you won’t be able to finish the test. Its really annoying but adds to the challenge. The highest score I got was 84.51 words per minute. Sounds fast until you realize that the worlds fastest typist was an old woman who hit 212 words per minute.. [Link]

Logic Puzzles

Post by Mark

I used to think I was a very logical person until I tried answering these problems.. even the very easy problems are giving me a hard time. I think just hate reading long paragraphs.. [Link]

note:
The lateral thinking problems are more fun [Link]

Color Illusion

Post by Mark

I am not a big fan of these optical illusion stuff you find online but this is the first time I see one that works like this.

“Just stare at the dot for 30 seconds. Then, without moving your eyes, move the mouse over the image. It will look like it’s in color until you move your eyes.”

Basically the black and white picture will end up looking as if its in full color. Freaky. [Link]

Macsaber

Post by Mark

The past few days I was hearing a lot about this application on the Mac called Macsaber that worked with the latest Apple notebooks by replicating the Star Wars light saber sound everytime you swung your Mac around. Anyway I couldn’t try it myself and I couldn’t find any videos or pictures of it in action so I ignored it.. until now. I present you with Macbook Man! [Link]

Arabic Cartoons Theme Songs

Post by Mark

This site is amazing! It has videos and audios of our favorite cartoons from when we were kids including shows like Efta7 Ya Simsim, Alshanakel, Zaina wa Na7oul, Bashar, Flona and Heidi. Listening to them makes me wish I was a kid again on a Friday morning. [Link]

Every 108 minutes, the button must be pushed. From the moment the alarm sounds, you will have four minutes to enter the code into the microcomputer processor. [Link]

(you won’t get this unless you watch the tv show Lost)

I don’t know how old this is but a friend of mine at work just showed me it. Give Stewie from Family Guy a command and he will obey. My favorite is “kill someone” and “fart”. [Link]

fastr – a flickr game

Post by Mark

Fastr is a really addictive game which I have been playing for the past hour.

Fastr is a game that uses flickr images. It loads ten images that all share a common tag, one by one, and you guess what the tag is. When you guess right, the tag will turn blue. Then you can watch the pictures until the next set begins. The faster you guess, the more points you get. The points are reset every five minutes.

In one round I was able to score in the top 5, its really easy to play and its very fast. Type your guess and if it doesn’t turn out right quickly delete your word and try again. [Link]

Video: Fun at Work

Post by Mark

fun at work

Awhile ago I went and got a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi and 1 roll of Mentos to try the experiment I posted about last week. When I got back to the office I called some friends out onto the roof-less balcony so I could show them this cool experiment. Since I didn’t tell anyone what was going to happen they nearly all got sprayed including the cameraman as you can see in the video. The Pepsi fountain hit 3 meters high although it doesn’t really show in this tight shot clip. Download the video and check it out. [MOV 115KB]
