Sweater Tip of the Day

You really should wear another shirt under your sweater. Especially wool sweaters

Bonus tip: Did you know, if typing properly (ie. not hunt and peck) that you can type "sweaters" using only your left hand? The same goes for "star wars".

I think my right hand hits the "t" in sweaters

I never learned "proper" typing, and just picked it up through constant use, so my hands just sorta go where they want to go without thinking about it. it's like improv typing :)

Ya, the T does go to the left hand.B is a bit more tricky, but I would vote that on the left hand as well.

I bet that the left hand can type more longer words than the right hand. A, E, S and T are just too darn useful.

Now, for the real tip, did anyone watch that video? It's hilarious!

B and T are both with left hand. I agree that left can do more words than right, but opium is all right :).

yeah, Peter I agree - I usually get T and B with my right hand.

I dont think the proper typing is very efficient. but I guess that's why they call it "proper" I suppose

like how "proper" etiquette usually means you're gonna spend an extra 15-20 minutes per meal picking up or setting down silverware

All this talk of typing reminds me of my favorite game, TYPER SHARK, aka, the only video game I'm good at! This great game tests and improves your typing speed. Type the words on the sharks before they eat you. My best score was 120 wpm. Years of IM'ing and required 6th grade typing class helped me get faster!
