If you speak quickly, you could probably say any randomly-chosen number between one and a thousand in around half a second. Very big numbers obviously take longer to say, so we add half a second for every extra x1000.

    Note: we do not count involuntary pauses, bathroom breaks or the necessity of sleep in our calculation!
