According to ProProfs:

"If top readers read at speeds of above 1000 words per minute (wpm) with near 85% comprehension, they only represent 1% of readers. Average readers are the majority and only reach around 200 wpm with a typical comprehension of 60%."


So let's do the math:

A typed page has an average of 250 words on it. To break that down it would take the average person 5 minutes to read 4 pages.

Based on this and the number of pages provided by Kavanaugh (548,000) it would take Senators 475.7 days without ceasing for food, bathroom breaks or sleep to read everything submitted already and yet they demand 10 times that for an informed decision to be made. Really? They need more than 14 years worth of non-stop reading material to continue the hearing? And worse yet, we can tell some of these Senators are on the low end of the average reader, just based on them reading their own statements.

Just wanted to keep it real...

    Cruz and Sasse hit it out of the park. The Dems were absurd. Who would vote for such antics? Embarrassing and disgraceful

    I truly doubt that most of these people can even comprehend what they are reading! Which makes this an exercise in futility and totally stupid! ??

    No wonder nothing ever gets done! They haven’t even had time to read the thousands of pages of information they already have. So worried about not receiving additional records. They have ulterior motives for stalling. They were never concerned that we know so little about Barack Obama. Difficult to watch such waste of time! Confirm Judge Cavanaugh ASAP!

    Where were these people with their indignation when hilary was subpoenaed to turn over her documents--they weren't even outraged when she (FINALLY) got around to giving SOME documents, and destroyed others and the hard drives and the phones, etc? Did I hear any outcries? I didn't think so. And, where is their outrage that the DOJ and FBI aren't turning over THEIR subpoenaed documents? Maybe they think, if they wait long enough, the FBI and DOJ would have time to do a hilary cleaning. Maybe Kavanaugh's momma could send in any baby books she has--so they can see what things he said and did as a baby? That way, they could start at the beginning. Oh, and don't forget all his report cards, and any essays he wrote. Or, even test papers so they could see what kind of answers he gave in 5th grade.
