Typing Derby Paragraph Megathread

I had seen little of Holmes lately. My marriage had drifted us away from each other. My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition, the drowsiness of the drug, and the fierce energy of his own keen nature.

Welcome to Team Fortress 2. After 9 years in development, hopefully it would have been worth the wait. To listen to a commentary node, put your cross hair over the floating commentary symbol and press your primary fire. To stop a commentary node put your cross hair over the rotating node and press the primary fire again. Some commentary nodes may take control of the game in order to show something to you. In these cases, simply press your primary fire again to stop the commentary. Please let me know what you think after you’ve had a chance to play. My favorite class is the Spy. Thanks and have fun!

When misrule takes its place at the eight corners of the world.When the Brass Tower walks and Time is reshaped.When the thrice-blessed fail and the Red Tower trembles.When the Dragonborn Ruler loses his throne, and the White Tower falls.When the Snow Tower lies sundered, kingless, bleeding.The World Eater wakes, and the Wheel turns upon the Last Dragonborn.

Any sufficiently large software project is almost guaranteed to include multiple defects. Finding and fixing defects is one of the main tasks of software development. Therefore, any techniques which can make defect correction more efficient is valuable to a developer. Software defect prediction is the use of models to detect the modules in a system that are most likely to have defects. This allows quality assurance to focus their resources on troublesome modules while preventing resources from being wasted on defect-free modules. Defect prediction is not without flaws. The best models require data from similar projects or earlier versions of the same project in order to train, and most cross-project models do not yet perform satisfactorily.

James Hook, thou not wholly unheroic figure, farewell.For we have come to his last moment.Seeing Peter slowly advancing upon him through the air with dagger poised, he sprang upon the bulwarks to cast himself into the sea. He did not know that the crocodile was waiting for him.As he stood on the bulwark looking over his shoulder at Peter gliding through the air, he invited him with a gesture to use his foot.It made Peter kick instead of stab.At last Hook had got the boon for which he craved.“Bad form,” he cried jeeringly, and went content to the crocodile.Thus perished James Hook.

Hello, how are you doing? Yes, you. The you who is currently typing this paragraph out. You’re typing quite quickly, I see. Would it be wrong to throw in some long words? I’d rather not spontaneously disambiguate the nonsense presented within each concurrent statement made herein, after all. Or would you like smaller words? I do like it when I can type a lot of words very fast. You know factorials, right? That’s where 4! is equal to 4 times 3 times 2 times 1. The result is 24. Well, I’d say that this has been fun. Hopefully you performed well! With that, I’ll see you off.

You wanna know how I got these scars? My father, was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy grabs the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn’t like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and say, why so serious? He comes at me with the knife. Why so serious? Sticks the blade in my mouth. Let’s put a smile on that face! And. Why so serious?

Hey, you. You’re finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us, and that thief over there. Damn you Stormcloaks. Skyrim was fine until you came along. Empire was nice and lazy. If they hadn’t been looking for you, I could’ve stolen that horse and been half way to Hammerfell. You there. You and me – we should be here. It’s these Stormcloaks the Empire wants.

Diane, my recorder is on the table. I’m unable to reach it at this time. I can only hope that I inadvertently pressed the voice activation button. I’m lying on the floor of my room. I’ve been shot. There’s a great deal of pain and a fair amount of blood. Fortunately I was wearing my bulletproof vest last night per bureau regulations when working undercover. I remember folding the vest up trying to chase down a wood tick. If you can imagine the impact on your chest of three bowling balls dropped from the height of about nine feet, you might begin to approximate the sensation.

It’s 3:30 AM, i’m all alone and the only light is the warm glow coming from my monitor. My hand does a repetitive motion approximately every 5 seconds as it desperately summons the warm and welcoming sound of slots. But then a horrifying sound plays, a wheel spins and my attention focuses on the tiny arrow on top. The wheel slows down, teasing the arrow to land on the forbidden spot. My heart stops as the arrow responds to the teasing, i close my eyes as a orgasmic pleasure surges throughout my body. But when i open them, i’m in my bed, it’s 9:00 AM and the sun gently beams through my window. Tears stream down my face.

Ancient Rome was the center of one of the largest and most powerful empires in history.

It reached the height of its power between 100 and 200 AD. Afterwards the Roman Empire began to collapse because it became too big to rule. The West Roman Empire ended in 476 AD when Germanic tribes invaded, while the East Roman Empire continued to exist for many centuries.

Rush - 2112 - [III. Discovery] - 106 Words

Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful. I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can’t wait to tell the priests about it!

“Stuffing your face as usual.” “I gotta have a good meal.” “Garfield you fat cat. You are so big and fat. Why are you so fat?”
“I eat, Jon. It’s what I do. It’s time to kick Odie off the table.”
“Don’t do it Garfield, that’s our pet dog Odie.”
“You’re going into orbit, you stupid mutt!”
“Garfield!”
“Time for a nap. I’m a cat who loves to snooze.”
“Garfield, you lazy cat.”
“I hate alarm clocks. I’m hungry. I want some lasagna.”
“You’re eating us out of house and home, Garfield.”
“Enough with the chit chat, let’s get some grub going.”
“Where are the three cheese pizzas?”
“I ate them.”
“Where are the taco shells?”
“I ate them.”
“You’re such a bad kitty, that’s it. I’ve had it with you, that does it. I’m done, that’s the last straw, Garfield.”

Rush - 2112 - [IV. Presentation] - 72 Words

In the sudden silence as I finished playing, I looked up to a circle of grim, expressionless faces. Father Brown rose to his feet, and his somnolent voice echoed throughout the silent Temple Hall. Instead of the grateful joy that I expected, they were words of quiet rejection! Instead of praise, sullen dismissal. I watched in shock and horror as Father Brown ground my precious instrument to splinters beneath his feet.

Rush - 2112 - [V. Oracle: The Dream] - 103 Words

I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase. I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities, and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things.

Rush - 2112 - [VI. Soliloquy] - 83 Words

I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last. “Attention all Planets of the Solar Federation, we have assumed control.”
