THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG

What?
If my son could decimate Lego cities with his genitals, I'd be [darn] proud.

This is off my laptop's keyboard (had it for about three years now): THEQUCKROWFOXJUMPSOVERTHELZYDOG

I could've sworn that I've seen a thread about this somewhere before.
I'm a horrible person.

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG

The trick if you don't have a keyboard with no ghosting issues whatsoever is to connect two keyboards to your computer at once, which is how I generated the above. No one said I had to use both Shift keys on the same keyboard!

More seriously, here are the results for several keyboards I tested around my house, sorted by number of keystrokes registered:

HP KU-1060 (stock USB keyboard included with my desktop):

H UCK BON FOX JUMPD OV H LAZY DOG

Built-in keyboard on an Acer Aspire One KAV60 (tied with the HP keyboard):

THE QUIC BROW OX UMPE OER THE Y O

e-Machines KB0511 (PS/2 keyboard that came with my mom's desktop):

HE QUIC BROWN OX UMPE OVER HE Z OG

Chicony KB-2961 (ancient PS/2 keyboard on my sister's ancient desktop):

HE QUIK BROWN FO JUPED OER HE LA DOG

Ideazon ZBoard ("gaming" USB keyboard with swappable key layouts, which was advertised with anti-ghosting features; I got it from a friend some years ago):

THE UICK BROWN FO JUED OVER TE LAY DOG

And with a flawless victory, the Dell SK-8110 (PS/2) connected to my dad's desktop:

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG

Oddly, none of the keyboards tested seemed to have issues with spaces not registering.

No wonder WR makes such long posts.  He has many times more keyboards (and can use multiple at the same time) in his house then most of us have screens.

Warp and Chef' said "JUMPED" instead of "JUMPS" and therefore their sentences have no Ss, so only Ultima Shadow wins the pie.

I just went back and typed an "S" with both Shift keys held down on every keyboard except the e-Machines keyboard (which is connected to a computer in a room where someone is sleeping right now). Your point is moot.
