You played the game for more than 2 hours?!?

Um, no. That's 2 minutes and 47/100ths of a second

And there was me about to take back everything I'd ever said about decreasing attention spans.

Just a comment on this little bit of a way to waste your time: The Game:

All mice are not created equal. My left-click button on this laptop is rather stiff--if requires a lot of pressure, comparatively speaking. And it has a touch pad instead of a mouse. So, when I played the game, I played with a fake mouse.

Now on to Modgod: I noticed, while playing, that as the seconds played increased--and I was madly trying to fill in those circles with dots that were quickly disappearing--that the disappearance rate of dots disappearing increased as I increased my speed of moving from pulling man to pulling man. Your own admission that you dropped out and just let the game finish itself out intrigues me. I wonder whether the fact you dropped out early due to boredom left those men losing dots at a very slow rate thereby increasing your time to over two minutes without doing anything at all. I'm intrigued enough to go back to the site later today and see whether that lazy-bones strategy would work for me,too--not that it was actually a strategy for you, but.

Well, Rhubarb, I had fun playing it two times. Sigh. You win some and others spin out all squirrely...

No, no. It was a typo. What she meant to type was "Now this game is dum!"

Sorry, WW!
