Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. [h=2]You read 415 words per minute.
    That makes you 66% faster than the national average.[/h]
  2. Tip: It gets easier every time.
  3. I'm interested in learning to speed read, however, if I read porngraphic books, will it lead to premature ejaculation?????????????
  4. You're not supposed to "read" stick books.
  5. You read 1,463 words per minute.
    That makes you 485% faster than the national average.

    The thing is, I actually do read that fast. I will 'do' a page in most books in anywhere between 8-10 seconds. My wife hates it, when I'm sat with her & I'm reading she likens it to someone screwing up sheets of paper for hours on end (I am no longer allowed to read in bed.......). I can easily finish a couple of novels in a night. Funnily enough, our house is full (and I mean full) of books.
  6. Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store

    and then

    Junk Removal, Confidential Waste, House Clearances London
  7. You read 397 words per minute.
    That makes you 59% fasterthan the national average.
  8. 314 26% faster than average, no fingers involved, just had to read it 3 times to get the questions right :)

    You see you lot? You see this? This is you this is.

    3% above average. The finer things in life deserve to be savoured slowly.
