Today’s fact of life#29


People read faster or slower depending what they read from.  Not only do you blink less when you’re on a computer, but reading from a screen also slows you down. On average, people read 10% slower from a screen than from paper!  As for the blinking part, did you know that during everyday life, people normally blink at a rate of twenty times per minute?  But put them in front of a computer, and that number drops way down to seven times per minute!
