try keeping up with shorthand. I care no how fast you can type you will
be left in the dust. If you don't like to write it then you can learn
like the court stenographers. they'll also leave you in the dust.

A keyboard is fast because you've never tried to do something else.

far along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
