90 is my "high score". How do you do?

It's interesting, when I select the Dutch test (my native language) I seem to max out around the 60 words per minute. Strange.

Tried it once, and got about 50 wpm. IMO, I think the issue is that it is not well formed sentences. I have to think about each word, instead of processing a sentence at a time.

I got 55. Yeah, it's kind of a weird test with the random words.

I just tried a typing test that uses complete articles. I hit around the 65 mark.

Proper sentences seem to make me think about the content too much, I find it easier to "mindlessly type fast" with random words

My first attempt on the Astronaut test clocked in at 62 words; I did best at Wizard of Oz, which gave me 74.

I do better with sentences but only if I can customize how many spaces to use after a period. I use two spaces because I learned to type on a typewriter. The ones with one space are hard to get used to.
