    Marty, Good, since I know sign language. I'd like to have someone who doesnt lie about what you have done to ensure that I cheated,

    Connor, I would always accept any challenge that comes my way from somebody who ACTUALLY knows sign language.

    I love this rivalry heating up. Would enjoy seeing more sign language records -- maybe fastest time to spell particular words/phrases, or Most People To Sign The Alphabet At Once.

    Connor Our moderation team watches all videos that come in and sometimes adjust measurements. That's what happened in the case of Marty's time.

    Your Record says 4.43 but your timer says 5.

    I actually did not skip any letters,if you check again the letter U and V follows T it just doesnt appear like it because of the crappy frame rate, If you put it in slow-mo you would've noticed this. Consider this a challenge, and it has been accepted

    Yes, I beat and submitted it last night. He did not sign every single letter of the ASL alphabet. At the end, he signed T, and skipped U and V, signed X and then Z. Also, many of the letters were not signed correctly. My submission goes along with me saying the alphabet at the same time to ensure I signed each letter. Also, I played the video in slow motion to make sure each letter was signed. The reason that I know this, is because my parents are deaf and I am fluent in American Sign Language.
