    Hand-operated stopwatches have an accuracy that is limited by the delay between your eye seeing the moment to start, your brain issuing command to start and your finger pressing the start button. This delay is known as your reaction time.
    Typical human Reaction Time is approximately 150 to 300 milliseconds (or 0.15 to 0.30 seconds).
    Lol okay, let's say 0.3 seconds. It's still well under the specs!
