Can you melt a keyboard with your fingertips?

So you think you can type? Before you say anything: no, it's not a pitch for a new reality show.

Whether you think that you're a fast typist or not, you have to appreciate this: a medical transcriptionist who typed so fast and so frequently that the keys of their keyboard became completely worn through.

Of course, we understand that there are a number of factors when it comes to wear on a keyboard. If you type in between bites of a KFC multi-piece extra crispy chicken bucket, for example, or if the tips of your fingers are worn rough from all those years of forced labor in a Siberian prison, then your keyboard might be more prone to degradation.

The question is, does reading about someone typing so fast that their keyboard melted make you green with envy? How about orange with desire?

If you'd like to try melting a keyboard with your keystrokes, then you'll need to get a little practice in. We've covered a large number of online typing tutors in the past. Or, if you prefer a download, you can check out Stamina Typing Tutor (thanks for the link, Aseem).
