    Forum challenge.

    Post your high score. Take a screen shot if it's ludicrous.

      A pox on you for this link.
      I am too weak to resist - but have much better things I should be doing.
      Now I had to waste valuable time just to beat wilderness.
      Although my attempt at a screen shot failed...

      I did score 25,780

      ... and I shall never click that link again. (maybe)

        That is the first time you've spoken directly to me, I do believe.
        With all the serious subjects you comment on and all your serious comments... and you spoke to me b/c of a Space Invaders link. lol
        That's funny.

              Now I am deeply wounded. All this time I thought I was a big shot whom everyone had checked out.

              I mean who could doubt that the author of such monumental pieces as Why Goats Don't like Rain, or my published scientific piece on What is the Scientific Method, and Who Created Science? - had a lighter side?

              Since you were not aware of these literary accomplishments, it can only mean you never visited my profile, which in turn can only mean I am just a tiny fish in a very large pond.

              I was sure my made-up data and faked images in Baltic Sea Anomaly Details: Is it a UFO or Hoax would surely have gotten me a mention in Nature, but did it? Noooo!

              ps. don't bother checking me out now... the damage is done. My bubble is burst, my parade has been rained on, my cheerios have been peed in, I am forced to admit I am a worm. I am not worthy.

              Thanks, Bess73

                lol... if it helps, Ive checked out your HPs account. Will told me the bubble was bad and so I don't go there. Not that I knew what I was doing when I was there, I found the whole thing to be very confusing. I will ask Will if I am allowed to come visit you, (if I can remember how to sign in). I do whatever he says.

        If you're having trouble with a screen shot, check out the snippet tool - I think it's part of windows 7, but you can google it.  I use it quite a bit for posting here or FB.

        And, of course, it would go a long way towards supporting such an outrageous claim! big_smile

          I use Pixel Grabber - Grab it! in Firefox, and it usually works great, but in this instance it did grab the screen, but everything inside the black game area was - just black. It may have something to do with capturing a flash image. Oh well.

          As for validation... no need. I am sure your next effort will top the measly 25,780 I scored.

            Unlikely.  It's asking for my email before it will let me play again.

            I don't need more spam, so your record will probably stand.

              Perhaps.  But that was years ago, wasn't it?  The skills, once second on the planet, have faded to a mere shadow of what they once were. 

              But cheer up - you do still have past glories to revel in.  I expect to be in the same sad state by the time I hit 100. smile

    Wow! A game where having any kind of cognitive function is a disadvantage. Cus first you get bored (3 secs) then you want to die (6 secs) then you notice that the dead fly on the monitor is actually quite entertaining (9 sec) then you accidentally hit the backspace (12 secs).

    I did notice I scored 320 before I came back here.

        I only got off the mini bus an hour ago. I still cannot straighten my legs (the seats are made for very small people. Or perhaps teddy bears).

        Growled at the cats. Then came straight to see how everyone is.

        Noticed the inevitable decline in standards. Now need more tea.

            All I really care about these days is food, to be honest. And Georgetown has great Chinese and Indian food. Also everyone speaks English, which helps. I could live there if it was a little less expensive.

            George got around a bit. There are rather a lot of Georgetowns.

            Dryers are woman stuff, so I have no idea of the significance of what you said there. Hope it is not life threatening.

                  I have found there are degrees of self ironing clothes. Or... iron-free... or no wrinkle, or whatever we call them.

                  I just hung up two "wrinkle free" shirts. One looked pretty much perfect, the other looked like... it basically needed to be ironed. I haven't figured out yet how the second group gets to make the same claim as the first.
