Post your high score. Take a screen shot if it's ludicrous.
I was rubbish at it when it first came out and I am still rubbish at it now 5339.
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
You see... I do have a lighter side.
Which, (cover your screen Will Aspe - shameless plug coming), I openly display on the Bubblews.
I guess it is my fault for not visiting that site. Otherwise, I would have known.
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.
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!
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.
Ok, but to be fair, I was literally posting the address on this forum while they were shooting at me. Grr! I blew it!
My son called me in the middle and I couldn't find a "pause" button!
Face it, Beth - you are just not earth defender material.
Ive kept her alive for years... while you were sleeping at night... while you were raising kids and making a living.... I was home, defending our planet. You wouldn't believe the atrocities they were trying to commit. You're all lucky to be alive!
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.
Just listen to you two! Here are the results of my first try, while distracted, (having to leave the keyboard several times with no pause), and it's not even my game.
Please let me know if you find a way to pause, btw.
Pay no attention, Beth. An obvious cheater who has hacked the game somehow.
Obviously some sort of comp. programmer who has figured out how to post fake scores.
Yes. If you look closely, only those pixels in the "3" of my photo have been changed. Easy enough with photoshop.
So ignore the imposter. When the real aliens show up overhead, (s)he will be begging you and I for protection whereupon we will put on our best sneer and ignore him.
Be nice or I'll make it a point to carve out time to play uninterrupted this weekend, and post that score. Where will that leave you, mister?
*haughtily* Ahead of the photoshopper, at least in the moral arena.
There I was, having a pleasant conversation with a fellow Defender Of Earth when you distracted me. And now take off on a tangent about Egypt, leaving me gasping for air and completely unaware of any connection.
Help an old Alien Killer out and explain?
But...but...I deny nothing. I admit to being better than Beth at killing invaders. I admit to being better than someone that can photoshop. I admit it all!
Besides, you shouldn't play on words like that: Starting in Devils Lake in Lincoln City Ore, and at 120 feel long (at high tide), D river flows from D lake to D ocean. Nothing about the nile.
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.
How was Xmas?
Im sure you meant me, as I have decided I am your favorite.
Did you have fun? Oddly enough I am reading this book where the woman is talking about vacationing in Malaysia. Weird.
Stop editing. I can't keep up.
Georgetown Washington DC?
(My dryer just went off.)
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.
lol. I had to fold the clothes before they wrinkled... This is as huge to a woman as hearing a click in the engine.
You mean that you do not have self ironing clothes?
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.
I already have scrabble, if I add one more game to my time, I'll never get my book finished or my house clean. Ive found writing pretty difficult with the kids off of school. I can't concentrate whatsoever.
16,420. Not bad considering I haven't played Space Invaders in dog years.
You can get around that. If you clean out your browser cache/cookies/etc. and then go back to the site, it'll let you back in as if it's never seen you before.

Space Invaders Have Attacked My Hubs!First there was EditBot, then came EditBot Comments. I literally feel like I'm playing Space Invaders every time I open My Account now. It's highly distracting, and when I "uncheck" the unwanted corrections, these Robots should Go Away! At what point...

Many people blame parents and society for their troubles. However, once we become adults, it is time to realize that our parents have done the best that they knew how. Furthermore, once one becomes an adult, he/she must look beyond the parental/familial purview and establish his/her...

Do you still have the Space Invaders stalking you?It annoys me no end to see EditBot marring my page under "Accounts". Yesterday I went through each hub [admittedly I dont have hundreds like some of you] and ticked or unticked each 'error' as I saw fit. I still dont think I...
