See how fast you can type

Post by Mark

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]

Chinese price discrepancies

Post by Mark

Gulf Royal Chinese

I am a big fan of Gulf Royal Chinese Restaurant, you know, the one located in the Marina Mall food court. Anyone who is a regular there recently would have noticed that the prices were increased. A combo before that cost KD1.750 now costs KD1.850. The combo that cost KD2 before now costs KD2.150. It seemed acceptable and reasonable with all the recent price increase in the market.

So this is where the story gets interesting, yesterday I went to Souk Salmiya since I needed to pass by the appliance section in City Center. When I was done I was hungry so I figured I would go have Chinese at the Gulf Royal Chinese located at the Souk Salmiya food court. I go up, I order the exact same thing as I always do (sweet & sour chicken, Kindu chicken and rice) and I give the guy KD2 and he gives me back 250fils. I check out the price on the menu and its STILL KD1.750. So I ask the guy “what the prices are cheaper here then Marina Mall?” and he tells me yeah they are.

I found that odd. Usually when a franchise increases their prices they increase them at all the branches. So how come it costs more to eat at the Marina Mall then it does at the Souk Salmiya one? I am sure it costs more rent at Marina but they also get wayyy more foot traffic. And if you increased the price at Marina wouldn’t you just as well increase the price at your other branches to make them unified? Is it because people who visit Marina Mall have more money? I am not really complaining here but I am curious..

Nike iD

Nike iD

I’ve been searching for new sneakers recently but was disappointed with my usual brand’s new collection. So, I decided to give Nike iD a shot. For those of you who don’t know what Nike iD is, its basically a website for Nike that allows you to choose from a collection of sneakers and then you could customize the colors anyway you want. I managed to create 2 sneakers (pictured above) which I liked but I couldn’t buy because it turns out they require a US visa card for payment. Hopefully once U Shop We Ship launch their virtual Visa card I will order them. The prices are very decent also, a pair of the sneakers above which are customized by me cost only $60. Try it out.
