88% -_- I remember when I got grounded for 2 months(well, it was one month, then a day of internet back, then a 2 week trip, then my bike got stolen so I got grounded again, etc....) and I sat in the corner of my room almost every day with a keyboard...and I'd type... (no, it wasn't connected to anything) then my parents got worried and took away my keyboard... I don't think any more info is needed Pfft
