Timed Practice Super Glitch

I was doing the timed practice for (It doesn't matter) all the lessons and my tactic for timed practice is skip the long sentences, so I pressed skip then enter immediately after, (I did this a few times) and then I got 46361245.05 seconds on the clock. This didn't happen again, and the computer froze for a little bit afterwards. This was a cool glitch and all, but I just had to make a discussion about it. Also, by now tons of people are trying this aren't they? I knew how much time I got because I took a picture. I wish I could put the picture in here, but I don't know how.

And another thing, wouldn't people be interested in a post named, TIMED PRACTICE SUPER GLITCH. I mean, you're the only person that commented.(as of 10:39, AM 2/3/14)

Yeah, I dont know. I think maybe it's because people tend to look at most popular discussions only? Also, I noticed one thing: the glitch occurs on "type what you hear" questions.

Yes, exactly same thing happens to me, everytime I learn in timed practice. Makes this mode pretty useless for me. Definitely should be fixed.

I tried to do it again, and it did the same thing. I wonder if maybe it's supposed to be a secret code or something used by Duolingo employees to test out timed practice for bugs.

On the bright side, it repairs all of my skills. I was able to watch a movie and finish it to test how much time it gives you.
