    I like that you can see the variation in this attempt of over 0.2 in some tries so to get a good stop each time would be all the more impressive

    I really want to see if someone can crack 100 in "Most times to stop a stopwatch in 10 seconds". So start and stop averaging at least 0.10 each stop. Going by this 0.06 it could technically get pushed to 150 times on a perfect run. I think when I used to do it I would average around 70...

    ANDY!! (shakes fist) Also, Peter I thought you would like this record, and I am going to consider hijacking your new record idea before you acquire a stopwatch.

    so stop at 0.09, 0.18, 0.30, etc and keep going until you go over 1 second or 10 seconds...

    Love it Rob... but please submit another category - one I used to do a lot but need to get hold of a stopwatch - how many stops can you get under a minute? OR lowest time after 10 stops - this means you have to be good on each stop and works out an average and leaves more room for the record to be shaved further...
