Reading speed!

I posted this link into the HP thread yesterday, and I figured since it wasn't HP related I should put it in another thread...

Anyway, I speed read naturally and I take in all the info. According to this, it's 450-500 words. Actually, it's 498, because I was two words away from the next highlighted section.

There needs to be some kind of tests at the end to see if you actually did take it in...
I got 200-250.

You should be able to tell if you take it in or not. I find that if I try to read faster, i take in less, and I actually end up reading slower. Also, there's another piece of writing for the test. just change the 2 in the URL to a 1. I think it's some speech by kennedy..

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Life is not measured by the amount of times you fall down but by the number of times you get back up again.

You're saying you read at about 2000 words a minute?

Wow...

More likely is that he just didn't do it properly.

If you can read that fast, it's surprising that you can't seem to write.
Not a winner anymore.
