    John- I think you had a second stopwatch in your other hand. If you make the attempt you should have the watch viewable throughout the video so we know you aren't cheating. If you try it again please make sure we can see the stopwatch, because in the video it really looks like you were cheating.

    • The Internet John Acton

      It's next to impossible to keep the stopwatch in the frame with the eyes closed going that fast (I bob my head to keep a rhythm) , but if you time it yourself it's clear that I wasn't cheating.

      But John- In your previous video you kept the stopwatch in fine even with the head bobbing!! Its very suspicious!

    • The Internet John Acton

      In my previous video I was going slow for the specific purpose of ensuring everything the stopwatch was fine because the record was 12 seconds, something I knew I could break easily. In order to break 8.6 seconds, I literally went out and bought a real stopwatch instead of a phone one in order to maximize the speed with which I could stop it when I finished.

      But seriously, if you don't believe me, time it for yourself; that provides incontrovertible evidence that my time is legitimate.

    Ben Sheppard, Im not pretty sure if your eyes were close in making this record attempt. The title says "with eyes closed" maybe it would be better if you submit another video.
