I just starts from H and then check the length of the names mentally. I was so freaked out when I reached the lanthanides; they are where I often get confused. Luckily still got all with 2:38 left.

weird how low radon is, you'd expect it to be close to xenon and argon. Boron on the otherr hand is much higher than I expected (but I guess that is because it is closer to the start of the periodic table)> My thoughts went, metals, noble gasses.. what else am i forgetting...
