I would expect the median times to settle out for each puzzle, and I would be surprised to see that much variation for a single puzzle. It would not surprise me to see that much variation on a puzzle story.
That's a good point, I was taking it to be for each 'story'. The little bit I have tried to correlate the same puzzle, on different attempts, was that it looked the same with only a slight adjustment at clues.
