I got my new ergonomic keyboard at work today and holy crap, its gonna take a lot of getting used to. But I know when I do, it's gonna be amazing (and good God, I apparently type really wrong).

 

Weekend:

 

What team was Wrigley Field first built for?

 

 

Monday:

 

Can you name the three former Cubs pitchers that have won the AL Cy Young Award?

Early bird does not read question correctly.

 

Change that Maddux to a Jenkins, please.

 

It's all 31.

Whales is right, Hernandez and Eck are right.  You fail for saying that Maddux was in the AL.

Dick Tidrow got the FUCK YOU CY YOUNG award for all four Chicago and NY teams so therefore he wins and we all lose.

Wait, you type the y with your left hand? That's really weird.

I have no idea idea and didn't realize it until this morning. That and I typed the N with my left hand as well.

My 8th grade typing teacher is rolling in her grave (if she is dead, that is)

The N thing is weird, because it's really close to the right hand, but I think I sometimes type Y with my left hand depending on what other letters are in the word that I'm typing.  Obviously, I don't use the right keys at all, but I think I'm an okay typist.

I'm afraid poor old Mrs. Matthews is long, long gone. That was 10th grade for me and I was the only guy in the class.

Yea, if you're typing the N with your left hand, I think you may be risking some serious injury.

Probably and my left wrist has been a bit sore the past 2-3 months.  With the ergonomic keyboard its a moot point, I have no choice but to use the right hands. 

 

Interesting observation today, it appears to depend on the word.  For 'remember' I used my right hand to type the 'b'.

We're talking about typing class, not telegraph class.
