And you wasted your four-thousandth post on this?

Yeah, yeah.  I only managed 13.
I'm not a particularly slow player, yet I don't play fast.  I play half-fast.

I had to stop at 22 because when I missed 23, I suddenly doubled over with a cold sickening wave of shame at having thrown away twenty minutes of life.

Wait a minute ...I feel a little better now. Well, back to it.

The absolute worst part of this game (besides my measly score!!) is in college, my roomates and I used to play this same game with mini frisbees and a fan.  For hours and hours!!!!  Must have been all the "experimentation" that was going on!!
The techniques, though they play an important role in the early stage, should not be too restrictive, complex or mechanical. If we cling to them, we will become bound by their limitation.  Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.

It's a sad state of affairs when getting a "5.9" into the centre of the basket is the best thing I've achieved all week...

11 so far.

This and  http://www.radicalplay.com/madness/]http://www.radicalplay.com/madness/  are absolutely killing any chance at studying I've got for a couple of weeks.

I got up to 32 just now. I probably could have gone further, but towards the end I was blinded by tears of guilt and self-loathing.

33, baby!

Not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed.  Probably the latter...

Is this thing turning me paranoid, or does anyone else get the feeling it tests your weaknesses?

I'm convinced it has A.I.  Once I get into a rhythm the angles I'm shooting at for certain speeds suddenly don't work...

Right, I think the fan is uncalibrated.

At least this one has the decency to insult you, and remind you that you are supposed to have a life!

24 so far....

Edit:  Make that 47! 8)

That one doesn't intrigue me like the wastebasket thing (thank you, God).

I discovered that you don't need to be online to play the wastebasket game, so I've just left it sitting in my taskbar for now. Now and forever, probably.

Yes, I have definitely noticed this as well.

I got 13 by the way.  


Who keeps moving the fan around needs to find a comfortable temperature.

On the fan I got 42, but it took awhile.  Only 15 on the soccer, but only tried a couple times.  Not a big fan of soccer.  I figure soccer was invented by those that couldn't throw a ball  ;D j/k--I would probably pass out from exhaustion if I were to actually play soccer :-X

Okay, Keith - I am totally humidified.  I was awful....I guess soccer isn't my game.
