One thing about those Sporcle quizzes: I tried the first one and got a particular time, I figured I could do better so I tried again and got a worse time even though I felt I'd gotten better, then I tried again and got an even *worse* time even though I'd tried even harder.

Turns out, the timer counts *down*, not *up*. You can switch the timer from "Default timer" mode to "Stopwatch" mode, but you have to do that every time before you start the game. I got it down to 1:01, still not as fast as you, but less embarrassing than getting "worse" every time. :P

You're right, it had me confused as well. If you're logged in you see a scoreboard so that's how I know my best times.
