How do you specify that you've found it?

Click on it. But it's a wee bit clunky.

Damn, some of the high scores are crazy-fast. Cool find.

If you go back and then forward you get the same place but with the clock back to zero so you can whittle you time down.

What am I missing? How it is possible to find, say, "Birthplace of Mary Shelley" in 1.82 seconds?

Or has this simply been hacked already?

I was looking for this just the other day and I assumed that I'd seen it first on MeFi but wasn't able to pull it up with a search. Now dang it, where did I find it originally?? But thanks, no less.

Don't tell my girlfriend, but I've got the record for Boston Commons (at the moment). It could upset the balance of my "New York >> Boston" relationship with her. (Either that, or she'll go, "awww... you learned Boston geography for me")
