    I haven't tried it, but one thing I've not seen mentioned is the effect of being pumped full of adrenaline.

    0.26 is not bad. Average reaction time is around 0.25 for a visual stimulus. That suggests anything less than 0.2 is possibly a jump start or a fluke.

    I'm getting better with practice and can manage a run of 0.27's and a best of 0.256

    The best time was 0.158 ... although the majority fell into 0.27-0.31 range ... quite a few jump starts, I suppose I can blame three pints of APA and a big meal at The Smoke Pit (wife's office do) he-he :thumb:

    I guess this just proves it is possible to get lucky. Genuine - no photoshop or trickery!

    0.198 for me. Quite pleased, not too bad for someone approaching 80 years old.
