My Life is Not a Representative Sample

Sometimes, you realize that things you take for granted are actually kind of bizarre subcultural phenomena. I remember this about forensics when I talk to people who did speech or debate in high school, and when I see people online swooning over speed-readers like this one...

...and my first thought is, "whatever, that is not that fast."

The debaters made about as much sense as you could expect from Berkeley and Harvard. What might be fun would be to speed up President Obama's teleprompter and see how well he keeps up.
