I just played the penguin game for like fifteen minutes, during which time I got the famed 207.6 pop fly. I wonder if that is the farthest a pop fly can go. It seems odd that three of us have gotten that exact number and no one has gotten any higher.

My shortest pop fly was 189.3.

Also, I did not once break into the 320s.

I believe the transition from pop fly to the skip is right around 188-187, it's tough to tell since you can only guess where the first skip is. What's the shortest skip you've had? I've got 68.

Hey I found a version of Dual! It's an old tank game where you select the angle and velocity of your tank barrel and then shoot back and forth against the other tanks untill one of you blows up. It's a great game, we used to have it on our old TI-82's in high school, everyone played in class. I'm hoping to find a version I can play online against the guy next to me in the office. There are lots of other small games on the site but I haven't explored them yet.

I was looking at these just yesterday. They would definitely help relieve stress related to inconsiderate people.

Nice work Starbug! :D There is just something about hurling penguins through the air that spells fun. And it couldn't have come on a better time than friday when I needed a distraction.

462.4 is the highest i got one........1386.04 is the most total movement ive gotten......best total score after five throws was 1450something (i restarted through by force of habit before i wrote down the exact number........

there is quite a few alternatives to the penguin game.....there is one where the yeti hits the penguin with a mace and the penguin explodes into a mess of blood......only to get blown up even further by landmines.....

Something completely different, but it fits into the "Found on the web" section, so decided to post it here. It's one of the most sad websites I've ever seen. Really makes you think.

WOW....thats so eerie....I don`t know exactly what to say...It`s so incredibly sad. People had to leave their homes, families, everything behind. It`s as if time stopped and that little corner of the world was left ina time warp. What really, really struck me was everything was left right where it was. Nothing changed. The calendar still hung on the wall, mail was in the mailbox, childerns toys were left in the classroom...it is just so...WOW...Your right. It really makes you think.

This site is really cool. You type in what you want the chicken to do and he does it. It works excellent on DSL or Broadband but if you have dial up like me it is`nt so cool but you if you are ever bored it`s worth checking out.
