Fun Links

Here are some links to some fun stuff.  Some of them will keep you entertained for hours.  OK, maybe just a few minutes but I found myself addicted to the simple game of Smack the Penguin.  Don't link to it if you don't have the time!

SodaPlay Design your own contraption and make it do things.  I can lose myself for a long time here.
Smack the Penguin See how far you can smack him.  Click once to drop the penguin and another time to get Yeti to swing the club.  My highest was 587.1.  There are many variations on this game.  Check out some of the rest at http://penguin.omnihosts.net/.  My favorite alternate is the Gory Version.  Be VERY careful that you don't start this without having some time to feed the addiction!!!
Orca Slap The Yeti and penguin are back at it.  This time you have to hit the penguin with a snowball and force it into a target.  Harder than Smack the Penguin.  Your cursor aims the snowball.  My highest total on this one so far is 581.8.  Here is another link to a smaller and faster file.
Box Game Such a simple game yet "most addicting."  Such a moron I am for not even making it to 10 seconds...
Putting Alright.  This one got me addicted too.  I finally got 5 in a row but it took a while.
Marble Mayhem Another HUGE time waster when you have nothing to do.  Takes a little time to load.
Pen Tricks Just like it sounds--pen tricks.  Do tricks with a normal pen and just one hand.  Be sure to click on the video section for great demos.

Pen Tricks is part of a larger group of known as Superhandz.  Check out some of theirs stuff too for card tricks, coin tricks, etc.

Speartoss Here's another time waster.  Hold down the mouse to raise the spear, then let go at just the right time for distance but don't go past the rocks.  You don't have to log in to play.
Drifting Game Addicting car game in flash.
Microgarbage Some really cool stuff here.  Click on the squares at the bottom for each time waster.

Subservient Chicken Continuing on the Burger King theme (what do these guys do when they're not flipping burgers you might ask?), type in a command and watch the chicken do what you ask!  I tried "jump on one foot" and a few others.  He's a pretty literate chicken.

Solving the Rubik's Cube for Speed

Speed Cubing World Championships

When the Rubik's Cube first came out I studied how it all worked and wrote down every combination that made each square move to a certain spot. After several weeks I finally solved it. I then got faster and faster using my own algorithms. Then some books came out on how to do it and they matched what I already had. Dang! Why didn't I think of that?

On January 17, 2006, a guy solved it in 11.13 seconds--A World Record!

Here's a video of a guy doing it in 13.41 seconds
