The other day I was perusing dig and I saw that title. Skeptical, expecting some lame tips or tricks, I clicked it anyways. I was very surprised with what was on the web page, a simple java applet that lets you read anywhere from 300-700 wpm, if that's physically possible. I've definitely found something new for reading web articles and whatnot. I haven't tried it with a novel yet, and don't think I will, but I can see it coming in handy for textbooks and studying when the school year rolls around. Check it out!

Thank you but I have a Russian bride who does all my reading for me while I smoke cigarettes and enhance my maleness. Can you refinance my mortgage?

What good's the Russian bride if she can't do that for you?

Does anyone actually think those male enhancing things WORK? They're even on TV now...

I think some of them might enhance your maleness in much the same way that some attention from a significant other might. Temporarily. In fact, I'm reasonably certain that's the fallback position one prominent advertiser is going to fall back on when they get sued for false advertising. "We just said it would increase the size. We didn't think we'd have to explain we meant it would be the same size increase you get anyway from 'at ease' to 'attention'."

BTW, that spreeder thing reduces my comprehension even though I can force myself to read really fast by putting it on a high words per minute setting. I can also force myself to read faster just by concentrating on doing so, but that also reduces my comprehension.
