I must plead guilty to this habit too. Ever since I was about 8, I've been using my stopwatch to time takeoff rolls and time elapsed between wheels up and touchdown. I usually jot them down on the back of my boarding passes and store them in a big box when I get home!
My longest quad engined flight was 15h 10m on a CX 744 LAX-HKG. My longest trijet flight was 12h 12m on an AA M11 LGW-DFW. My longest ETOPS flight was 9h 09m on an AI 310 DEL-FCO.
Shortest flight would be 0 minutes. Aborted takeoff at V1 due to flameout of the #3 engine at LHR.
Shortest actual flight would be a close run between a 22m DTW-CLE run on a CO B1900 and a 22m TYS-ATL run on an ASA CRJ.
