Idk about y'all but I'm typing pretty fast lying on my bed too.

My typing gets better the warmer my hands are.

Fingernails part is true. When mine get even slightly too long it starts screwing with me and makes typing feel much worse.

Warm hands are absolutely essential.

Definitely! Cold hands relate to stiff muscles, which is why I can't type well in the mornings. Or in the winter times, really.

Cold hands! No way you're getting your top score with stiff muscles

The short fingernails one hit too close to home.
