What can you accomplish in five minutes, 29 seconds? Dan Feyer can solve the Saturday New York Times Crossword Puzzle. That's right, the Saturday! In case you're unfamiliar, the NYT crossword becomes increasingly more difficult throughout the week — Saturday's puzzle is the most challenging. In fact, most people (not me) give up on completing it fairly quickly.

Feyer won this year's American Crossword Puzzle Tournament and says he completes an estimated 20 crosswords a day (or more than 20,000 over the last three years). Sounds like someone I know.
