Collegiate Massacres/Erosion of Women’s Rights/Continuation of Horrifying War Getting You Down?

posted by on April 19 at 10:52 AM

Before you indulge in suicide fantasies or whiskey shots before noon, please experiment with the rich narcotic properties of Boomshine. (For best results, hit your mute button.)

On weekends, I like to mix it with a bong hit and Sonic Youth’s A Thousand Leaves.

(Thank you, MetaFilter.)

It's no use, I keep failing to achieve my goal of getting 5 out of 20.

Now, where's that whiskey bottle...

57/60 on Level 12! That didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would.

AARGH! I have work to do! David!!!

Posted by Dan Savage | April 19, 2007 11:06 AM

Wow, that's addictive and great.

That's easy to get lost in.

Oh no. I can't do anything else until I get a perfect score.

Posted by Carollani | April 19, 2007 11:38 AM

I could play this for the rest of my life. My final score was 261, which I was impressed with, until I saw the high scores... now I know what I'm going to be doing (while pretending to work) for the rest of the day!

Phew! That was fun. Final score 250, but I think I can do better if I do it again . . . work? What's that?

Instead of a bong hit David, have Charles tuck you in at night and read you a bedtime story from A Thousand Palteaus by Deleuze. Nah, just do some mushrooms and run naked through that weird Cap Hill park that looks like Tellytubby land.

"Instead of a bong hit David, have Charles tuck you in at night and read you a bedtime story from A Thousand Palteaus by Deleuze."

Can't I do both?

Oh myyyyy! Yes! And please bring the Stranger video crew!

Aislinn, I got 261 too. I'm so proud I finished. This game makes me wish I was a pot smoker.

Posted by Fnarf | April 19, 2007 12:40 PM

My final score was 253. Level 12 took 15 tries. I got 53 and 54 7 times.

Thank you. I haven't been able to leave my house, I've been so fucking depressed the last three days, and now I can open the blinds.

Did you know that the sun is out?

Posted by Soupytwist | April 19, 2007 1:12 PM

Awesome! It's like a game version of that Sony commercial with all the superballs bouncing through the streets of San Francisco. LOVE it!

Posted by chrisdiani | April 19, 2007 1:46 PM

@14 I had the same score! I stopped counting how many tries it took to pass level 12. I got 54/55 more than a handful of times. talk about frustrating!!

Posted by Faux Show | April 19, 2007 2:27 PM

Level 12 is definitely the hardest.

Posted by elswinger | April 19, 2007 3:16 PM

I finally got 265. Level 12 is a bitch. It took over an hour, but this game is very addictive.

Posted by elswinger | April 19, 2007 4:19 PM

my best was not that good. But the max possible is 350,if one adds it all up. So what's with the 5oos?

Posted by Tiz | April 19, 2007 4:36 PM

Don't tell Freecell.

Mmm, I love games like this.

It was easy to find strategy in the first ten levels. After level 11, I started planning my snotty "this was cute but it took me literally less than five minutes to beat!" post. And then level 12 brought things up a notch.

I don't think strategizing helps here. I clicked when the balls were mostly moving toward the center of the screen, and when they were mostly moving away from the center. I clicked on the most populated areas, the least populated areas, and right in the middle. I waited for minutes per cycle, waiting for the seemingly perfect moment. I focused on the screen, willed my eyes to unfocus, squinted, focused my eyes beyond the screen, and crossed them to make two images. I tried to eliminate my bias against the less visible darkly-colored balls when making my calculated decision.

And then I zoned out and just started clicking the pretty colors. And THAT's when I got 57/60.
