I got 80 wpm on that Facebook typing test thing. Usually I get between 70 and 75 though.
I have a Korean friend that got 110 wpm and I'm not quite sure how, but I watched him do it and daaayumm.

My typing speed is somewhere between 80 and 90wpm. It's kind of surprising, since just several months ago, I was able to type only 40 words per minute. :/

Typing speed 82.

^ That's my fastest, though my tendency to make mistakes tend to be higher. My normal typing speed is usually around 75.

72 words per minute, though for some reason or another I type faster with my own language.

For me typing speed has more to do with the keyboard you use than anything else. My keyboard at home is much nicer than the ones at school, so I type much slower on the pooty dell keyboards with absolutely no room for my gigantic fingers. Although I hate them, I type a little faster on laptop keys unless I have to type numbers. They're really slow, but I do still love the old old keyboards, something about the way blue light reflected off the spacebar had me at startup. I like the clickie noise the keys make.

I just grabed my old favorite keyboard and I type at almost the same speed!

Right now, I'm around 35 - 45 wpm.  Doing Essays on the computer helps.

The 'new' dell keyboards are pieces of shit, to the max. 

I don't really mind them much for gaming though, since they have specialized edges/sides so you dont rest your wrist on the corner and they have big alt keys.

but for typing, just no.

Of the three times I took the test, two were over 100 and one was at 98.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams it is
still a beautiful world.  Strive to be happy.

First time was 81, second time was 100, third time was 81.  It's the errors that kill me; if I don't have to backspace (such as in the second attempt), I do really well.

Of course, I voted 70-80 in the poll before I saw that there was a link to a test. =P

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.
so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.
