Toking and Typing

Over the next few days, I'm going to be partaking in various activities while I'm high and while I'm sober.  The two challenges I've set up--one of which I completed today--are a typing test and Angry Birds.  Go ahead, laugh.  I just wanted to observe myself while doing things I love.  There's a website called www.play.typeracer.com and this is the site I used to track my typing progress. 

Last night, after taking a righteous toke, I sat down with my laptop and headed over to compete in some races.  I won't go into a ton of detail (mainly because there are pictures of my progress below).  I completed fifteen races during one sitting in order to get an accurate average.  My Words Per Minute (WPM) while stoned were 78.  I won 5 out of those races, and ranked within the 90th percentile of typists online--as shown in the two photos below.

The picture above shows my scored for all fifteen races.  As you can see, I maxed out at 89 WPM.

This picture explains my stats on the site.

Today, I completed yet another fifteen races--this time while sober.  This time, my WPM was 81.  Out of the fifteen races, I won eight of them and ranked 93.9% of all users on Type Racer.  You can see my sober results below.

Here are all of the races I completed, with 96 WPM being my highest score.

These are my averages.

As you can see, I am able to type four more words per minute while sober.  Although I had better scores while sober altogether, my accuracy was much better while I was stoned. This is probably because I was much more cautious and knew if I screwed up while typing a word, the whole race would be shot.
I know this is a pretty stupid thing to study, but I was bored, and these kinds of things tend to happen when I am bored.  I'm going to begin the Angry Birds challenge tonight.  What other activities do you guys think I should compare while stoned/sober?
