    Tried this before with different types of hits and it's always been more time consuming fixing the errors and capitalization than it is to type it out manually. There are free speech to text places on the web though.

    Thanks for the excuse to drink coffee after midnight, Merlamt. Are these gonna have a cap?

    I saw a girl with the same description clumsily spin around and stumble into a wall and it was pretty damn cute.

    This has tested as working, although I will never confirm or deny if I'm using it

    So after a bit of testing - using a dictation website takes me about 2 minutes with this batch, while just typing it while I watch usually < 1 min. Still a good wage either way, just double for me, if I type it straight.

    May experiment with another auto text website. I drank coffee, folks. That happens once a month, if that (I have high blood pressure, so I use it as a treat, special occasion - this is it!). This batch rocks

    Lots of people sneezing and coughing in these, then drinking what appears to be Pepto-Bismol. Also, laughing for apparently no reason.

    I was going to do a few of these until I got too sleepy, now I can't stop.

    I wish I wasn't so tired, been hamming batches for a few hours now. Seems the best batches for me (the $100+ ones) hit this time of morning, between midnight and 3 a.m. PST.
