Old Clock Speedrun Planning 36

The third conversation of the game is with Emily. My discussion of the English version is here.

In English, the fastest way through the conversation is to select the first option both times. The first time, you avoid a conversation about insurance. The second time, Nancy's question is slightly shorter than her other question.

Checking the French version, it's the same. The fastest way through the conversation is by selecting the first option both times.

In English, the first choice gives a difference of 5.6 seconds, and the second one gives a difference of .2 seconds. In French, the first choice gives a difference of 5.5 seconds, and the second one gives a difference of .05 seconds. The time difference between conversation options in English is a tad greater than French. I wonder what the time difference is between the two languages, when you take ALL the game's conversations into account.

It's your blog and you obviously will write what you want. I understand this. Personally, when I click on your blog and the content is, 'here's a list of games I'm going to play' or 'here's a list of the books I'm going to review' I find it uninteresting and can't close the page fast enough. What's the purpose of publishing these lists?
Also, what's the purpose of speedruns? Boredom? Just something to do?
I enjoy the blogs where you share your knowledge and perspective on various subjects, always interesting, but these are few and far between.
Think I'm going to have to quit you Michael.
