How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
This is pretty crazy.

Afro Mexican then. I should have got it correct, but I’m not sure it really matters for the point I was trying to make.
Just a quick thing about Leonardo DiCaprio not winning the Oscar for best actor:
He didn’t fucking deserve to win. Both Matthew McConaughey and Chiwetel Ejiofor were far superior in their roles and by moaning constantly about DiCaprio not winning an Oscar you’re devaluing the success of the people who did.
I haven’t seen one post about the people who actually did win Oscars, including Lupita Nyong’o who became only the second African American women to win an Oscar for her debut film.
So shut the fuck up about DiCaprio and maybe appreciate the people who actually did win. He’s a great actor but he didn’t deserve to win the Oscar this year. End of.
