"Permanent glasses."

Again -do I get glasses tattooed on my face before or after the job interview?

The pyramid swing is hilarious.

David

It is rather fabulous and it would add some class to the pyramids. As one commenter points out, “I really like the idea of being swung out hundreds of feet in a large, heavy car attached to a 4500 year old structure.” Though I suspect the Egyptian government might have had one or two reservations.

Here's one.

"As the dieters queued to see how many pounds they had shed, the floor beneath them in the clinic in Växjö, in south-central Sweden, began to rumble... "The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls," one Weight Watchers participant told the Smålandsposten newspaper. Soon, the fault lines spread around the room, and other sections of the floor gave way. Luckily, all of the dieters escaped uninjured and managed to move the scales to the corridor, which was not damaged in the accident, and were able to complete their weekly weigh in. The cause of the floor's collapse remains under investigation."

The first-person Tetris was a bit ... nauseating. Low vertigo threshold, perhaps. Could be useful as a good first-cut filter for test-pilot candidates.

But hey, that's why I keep coming back here ... for the nausea ;)

David

Dutch,

Actually, I was surprised how quickly you can compensate for the disorientation. But then I have played an awful lot of Tetris.

Franklin

First-person Tetris was astonishingly cruel. Loved it.

Anna

Bricks rotate you. It's the Russian way.

David

Franklin & Anna,

I take it you’ve tried playing in Night Mode...

Anna

Aaaahhh! :D
