The YouTube start & stop times are recorded in the data so accuracy is
within 1 second. For instances where the times are very close, the runs
will be timed with a stop watch and the start and stop times will reflect

starts and stops when the player gains and loses control over Chell. This
is based on the rules from the

as you look over toward the TV.
GLaDOS awakens - On my PC version, I lose control
after GLaDOS says "I've been really busy being dead" but I noticed
others lose control after GLaDOS says "when you murdered me" so in
that case I've tried my best to judge when they lose control.
Incinerator Room - Start timer immediately after
GLaDOS says "Here we are, the incinerator room"
GLaDOS lair and Falling down shaft - the screen goes

shooting in the blackness. I decided to stop timing when it goes black
since you're blind which means you've lost control.
