Fastest JetPunk Times

What's the fastest time on the Countries of the World quiz? It's a question that many people have asked, but I couldn't answer. It's really easy to cheat so just looking at the stats isn't enough.

Now there might be an answer. USAsoccer9876 has posted a video of completing the quiz in just 2:58. While this is far beyond the range of most people's typing ability, there is still room for improvement. Can anyone else do better?

See the video here.

Edit: Another user has posted a time of 2:48.

Edit: The record is now 2:44.

Edit: As of July 2019, the record is now 2:33, held by rawe!

Edit: February 2020, the record is now 2:17.

I never tried to set a speed record but looking it up now my fastest time is 5:42. I think I could probably shave 2-3 minutes off that with practice. I'm confused about the "USA" in the members username, though, as this contradicts the popular prejudice that all UnitedStatesians are ignorant of geography. Could the QM consider editing the member's username to avoid offending non-UnitedStatesians, please?

I don't speak whatever peculiar language it is you are writing in, but anyway if I get the jist: I'll stop pointing out that bigots are bigots without any basis for their bigotry as soon as they stop leaving bigoted comments at every opportunity.

But nobody was bigoted, you just projected bigotry onto an empty thread. Anyhow it's just a stereotype, we all live with them wherever we're from.

I don't see anything wrong with their name having USA. If there was a very popular quiz about lucky things and some with the name of BlackCat made the record, and you were the quizmaster, would you make them change their name?

I'm actually curious if copy/pasting is allowed, I mean if I paste a country lik equatorialguinea or dominicanrepublic it'd save a couple seconds from my time. But yeah you could only paste one country, if allowed :P

Hi! Thank you for including my time! It's such an honor to have the current record, it took a lot of practice. I started trying this around July of last year, so it was a long way until I could reach 2:48 :) Yeah my video has 2:49 because it's the final time of the manual timer, but I agree the official time should be 2:48, since it's the in-web time. Sorry if this sounds braggy, but it'd be nice to have my username added there as well, it feels like ''oh btw someone did a 2:48'', but it's fine if it stays like this :P

Hi, thank you! Yeah I split them manually, I'm so used to doing it that I barely lose time on it anymore, for example I always type ''argentinaENTERaustralia'', at most it loses one second, but having splits helps me see where I should practice, where I can improve and it also ''double checks'' my end time.

After some time quizzes are automatically approved. Essentially it prevents people coming on and abusing the site, but allows those that have been here a while and made several quizzes post and update quicker. (Essentially reduces the number of quizzes to be moderated once a user has been trusted)

Hey! We have a new record holder now! Found it while surfing on JetPunk. It's by user calledcoronavirus! He did it in 2:05 (Although he claims he had better record but no proof for it). This is his video of doing it.
