Here is the link to the previous years thread:
1. a. A few months ago i went to princeton university to see what the young people who are going to be running our country in a few decades are like.
B. I would go to sleep in my hotel room around midnight each night, and when i awoke, my mailbox would be full of repliessent at 1:15 a.m., 2:59 a.m., 3:23 a.m.
C. One senior told me that she went to bed around two and woke up each morning at seven; she could afford that much rest because she had learned to supplement her full day of work by studying in her sleep.
D. Faculty members gave me the names of a few dozen articulate students, and i sent them emails, inviting them out to lunch or dinner in small groups.
E. As she was falling asleep she would recite a math problem or a paper topic to herself; she would then sometimes dream about it, and when she woke up, the problem might be solved.

2. a. To avoid this, the qwerty layout put the keys most likely to be hit in rapid succession on opposite sides. This made the keyboard slow, the story goes, but that was the idea.
B. A different layout, which had been patented by august dvorak in 1936, was shown to be much faster.
C. The qwerty design (patented by christopher sholes in 1868 and sold to remington in 1873) aimed to solve a mechanical problem of early typewriters.
D. Yet the dvorak layout has never been widely adopted, even though (with electric typewriters and then pcs) the anti-jamming rationale for qwerty has been defunct for years.
E. When certain combinations of keys were struck quickly, the type bars often jammed.
