    Also, note to Rob and team: the time on my record is incorrectly displayed- it should be 10 mins and 37 seconds, not just 37 seconds. thanks simon

    Now the question is whether you are going to try and de-throne me. Think you can do it?

    Nice catch Simon. Good to see that there are people out there willing to make sure that a record is truly a record.

    This is not a record. You skip number 585. I watched the whole thing. Twice. Then I beat it. Except it wasn't beating it because your record is not a record.

    I agree Alex, discussion on why constitutes a number name should be made.... What happens after 1000 - it defeats the purpose of the record when you say one one twenty for 1120 instead of "one thousand, one hundred and twenty".

    You're allowed one-twenty instead of one hundred twenty (for instance)?
