but you don't use that in proper typing except maybe apostrophies and shift...

and how has it been broken 10 years?

I use left/right index fingers
left/right middle
left/right ring

and still only manage 60-65 wpm. I blame perfectionism.

I should explain better. I broke it ten years ago and didn't get it fixed. It healed, but crooked, and as I grew, it got worse. Its not too noticable, but it doesn't straighten (problem: typing) and doesn't have much strenthg (prblem: piano).

Alright, despite the slower pace, I'm taking the time to type properly now. I'm fucking annoyed reading my own posts.

I would think it could still be worked on to get it back to normal, though.

Actually being sloshed tends to remove those nagging little thoughts.

Maybe. I've never thought of it much. My parents didn't think it was broken at the time, and didn't realize what had happened till I was about 14 and they noticed how crooked it had become.
