I Tiberius Claudisus Drusus Nero Germanicus. This-that-and-the-other, for I shall not trouble you yet with all my titiles, who was once, and not so long ago either, known to my friends and relativies and associates as 'Claudius the Idiot', or 'That Claudius', or 'Claudius the Stammerer', or 'Clau-Clau-Claudius' or at best as 'Poor uncle Claudius', am now about to write this strange history of my life; starting with my earliest childhood and continuing year by year until I reach the fateful point of change where, some eight years ago, I suddenly found myself caught in the 'golden predicament'.

I made 18 mistakes that i didn't correct immediately but managed to get 54wpm.

It's interesting what happens when you aren't looking at what you type but at what you want to type.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; and then took the other, just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim, because it was grassya nd wanted wear; though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.

I think mine was a lot easier, though. No Latin names, and I was already familiar with Frost.

lol Here's mine:

DOCTOR, The pills are good for nothing, I might as well swallow snowballs to cool my veins, I have told you over and over how hard I am to move; and at this time of day, I ought to know something of my own constitution. Why will you be so positive? Prithee send me another prescription, I am as lame and as much tortured in all my limbs as if I was broke upon the wheel: indeed, I am equally distressed in mind and body, As if I had not plagues enough of my own, those children of my sister are left me for a perpetual source of vexation, what business have people to get children to plague their neighbours?

I was only 48words/min, but didn't make any mistakes. *hugs* How're you going? We still need to go out.

81 WPM, 1 mistake - Dvorak FTW.
Muthengi was fourteen years old when he first saw a column of shining-skinned young Kikuyu warriors swinging along the forest's edge towards the plains, like a ripple of wind across a field of ripening grain, on the way to war. Afterwards he colud<\b> not remember the names of the warriors, nor the boasting words they had shouted to his father as they loped past, nor even the designs painted boldly in black and red on their long shields; but from that moment he became a warrior; his spirit marched with theirs, and dreams of battle filled his waking mind.
