Just For Fun

A Surprising Test

Hugh sends us this:

How well can you do on this test? We all should pass (24 out of 30), but you may get a lower score than you expect. I did!

Supposedly, 96% of all High School Seniors FAILED
this test. If that's not bad enough, 50+% of all individuals over
50 also failed.

Take the test. You may be surprised. If you know how
many stripes are in the American flag, you are sure of
one right. In California, the source of the test claim
some people scored zero while over a thousand
scored 100%.


Check out this fun video

Aunt Pat passes along this video link that's circulating on the web. The video was made in the Antwerp, Belgium, central train station March 23, 2009. Some 200 dancers participated in this performance/stunt, to the bemusement of the crowd waiting for trains. Apparently it was a promotional stunt for a TV show.

Feed the fish

Click anywhere in the tank to toss in a pinch of food.

Notice how the fish move toward your cursor, hoping you'll drop in some food.
Don't disappoint them!

Watch the Penguins

They don't really do much, they just... waddle around.
If you click on one you can move it.
If you move the cursor around the screen, they'll follow it.
It's fun, because...
They're penguins.

Shall we play a game?

Play a game of hangman, or two... or twelve...
