    Actually I should modify that. "That proves that I was at one point capable of getting a score under a minute on the intermediate setting on this computer using the equipment as it was at the time I achieved that score."

    I probably didn't cover all of my bases but I realized that just because I got the score once doesn't mean that I'll always be able to achieve it.

    Yep. Perhaps you could recommend it as a course of study to all these people who think correlation = causality and that data proves things?

    Oh I know I can. But the data didn't prove that I could do it again...

It depends a bit on one's philosophy of measurement, I suppose.
