YSK you can learn how to type without having to look at the keyboard in about 2-4 hours using a cardboard box & keybr.com (a free touch-typing tool with no account or ID or login required)
Step 1: Cut a good size (about 15" wide x 6" tall) piece of the top of one side of a medium-sized cardboard box with no lid (choose a box big enough to fit upside down over your keyboard). Your wrists and hands will reach into your covered keyboard through this opening.
Step 2: Go to keybr.com and just start typing the letters you see on the screen, and take breaks as needed. By the third or fourth hour, you will know where the keys are and won't have to look at the keyboard ever again.
Step 3: Always be spelling the words in your mind as you are typing. Enjoy your new skill!

LPT Request: How do you end a conversation without being rude when the other person won’t stop talking.
My dad does this all the time. I ask him a slightly open-ended question like, "Why'd you get that model of computer?" He begins answering, never pausing long enough for me to say a single word. He starts sort of on topic, then, five minutes later, he's taking about why you should never lend your friend an automobile. As he drones on, I do my best to tell him with body language that this isn't productive. I stare blankly at him. I look away. I stare at the ceiling and tap my foot. I have even slowly inched out of the room while he was talking.
And in the end, he never even answered the question. Then he sort of wraps up, and turns his attention away with a "nailed it" look on his face, and I'm left dazed and alarmed, knowing nothing new related to my question.
I need to be able to end these lectures before they kill me.
TIL in 1986, when a five year old boy fell into a gorilla enclosure and lost consciousness, a large male gorilla named Jambo stood between the boy and the other gorillas in a protective gesture, even stroking the boy’s back. The incident helped create a positive public perception of gorillas.
TIL In 1965, Andre the Giant received a draft notice for French’s peace time army, but was unable to join as there were no shoes big enough, bunks long enough, or trenches deep enough to accommodate him.
