I type pretty fast:
In fact, the speed of 286 wpm surpasses many people, including Blackburn, and even Micheal Shestov. Even a great typer such as Micheal Shestov, who can hit 17 keys per second, cannot surpass the amazing Joe Finkleman. Joe Finkleman typed 396 characters in 13.84 seconds, a speed of more then 28.5 characters per second. This astonishing, and almost unbelieveable speed is more than 1.5 times the speed of Michael Shester, who is one, if not the fastest typist in the world.
I hope you have seen this video, and once you see it, it is unbelieveable how Michael Shester reached this speed, even without a single inaccuracy. No inaccuracies, with over 200 wpm is impressive. But Joe Finkleman's very own record just flattens any other typist' records.
And look here:
Here I, Joe Finkleman himself flattened his own record with this shocking speed. Turning heads around the world, the speed of 1250 wpm shall remain unsurpassed, for the time being at least until Joe Finkleman breaks his own again. The smashing speed of 125 characters per second is just about God's speed, and it is certain that Joe Finkleman will remain the world's fastest typist for some time.
But now, here:
The image shows it all. 5000 words per minute had people all over the world saying WTF..? But Joe Finkleman's friends and family knew better. At 5000 wpm, or 500 characters per second, the speed is almost 30 times as fast as Michael Shester, argubaly the second fast typist in the world, after Joe Finkleman. The domination that Joe has shown in the world of typing is truly unique.
But this image shows the true potential of typing. When Joe Finkleman's hand blurred across the keys, he showed the true potential of what one can acheive.
Thus Joe Finkleman's life is complete, at least with this image. Amen!
This next image shows that it is not only on one website that Finkleman reaches his objectives. On a relativly hard text, Joe Finkleman not only surpassed his record of 10000 wpm, but by a long shot! Thus, there with began the end of his typing career. And for curious souls, here is the image:
So there! Here is the legend of Joe Finkleman, sitting behind this account, and the story of the relatively unknown legendary typer.
