TypeRace is a site that's an online typing competition. It pits you against other people by typing quotes from books, movies, and songs.
But it's not only a game. It actually improves your typing speed, some say as much as 50 words-per-minute. So I decided to give it a whirl.
For my first go around, I played against 2 others. The site chooses who and how many you play against. The text was taken from The Thermodynamics of Pizza by Harold J. Morowitz. I came in first place at 92 WPM. Since I was a little champion, I decided to do it one more time.
I should have quit while I was ahead. I came in 3rd with only 80 WPM typing a quote from the movie The Dark Knight.
Go ahead and pop over there. It's super fun and it's free. And if you're brave enough, let me know how you did in the comment section.
