This Fifth Grader Can Type Faster Than You

This cute fifth grader is named Mackenzie. She types at a rapid 119 words per minute and makes the rest of us look pathetic.


I'd be happy to just plain stop making typos and maybe type a little bit faster, but Mackenzie won't rest until she reaches a 200 WPM pace.

Geez, these overachieving kids nowadays. [Mashable via Boing Boing]

I suck. I can only do like 30 WPM because I peck with only 2 fingers hehe.

But seriously though - QWERTY was designed to slow people down. 120 WPM by a 5th grader is pretty incredible, but I wonder how much she would blow people's minds with something like a Dvorak layout.
