Preparing for the trip to Texas on Sunday hasn’t left much time for surfing.
Dungeon Escape! (games, fun, funny, flash, stick)
Just like that old game “Dragon’s Lair.” Goofy clicking fun.
Wizard of Oz/JesusDressUp.com (religious, humor)
What would Jesus/Dorothy do? A little irreverence for Good Friday.
The_latest_works3.gif (GIF Image, 809×596 pixels) - Scaled (85%) (graphics, illusion, weird, wtf)
That image is not animated, it’s your brain doing the work. Neat optical illusion. When you move your eyes, it looks like it’s changing.
Daily Set Puzzle (game, puzzle, cards, fun)
The non-computer version (of the game “Set”) is becoming popular at our house, so this is a great brain exercise! For the visual and the logical. The online version has a new set of 12 cards every day. If I get better at it, maybe I won’t be so embarassingly bad.

BONUS: Firefox Commercial. Yeah, that’s pretty much how I view Internet Explorer.]

Enjoy your stay in the Sovereign Republic of Texas. Come back well.
"Sets" are what kill me in IQ tests. It took me 22 minutes to solve today's puzzle... but at least I solved it. :)
It took me 4 minutes, 13 seconds. I didn't know it was keeping track for me. :-P I'm going to have the girls do it. They're pretty good at Set.
Happy Bunnyween, everybody. :-)
I got my birthday time of 11 Mins, 21 Secs. Yikes.
I did it in about 11 minutes. I didn't know it was tracking me, so I did other stuff while I was at it.
I also did the Exactica puzzle as well.
Just under five minutes this time... because I practiced a little this weekend, and I worked faster because I knew I was being timed. :) (The 22 minutes last time did include the time it took to do the tutorial.)
2 minutes, 42 seconds today. That was an easy one because of what was missing -- most of the sets had to be of a particular kind, but I won't spoil it for anybody who's going to do it.
I thought it was easier this time, too. So it wasn't just my imagination?
I don't think so. You can look at the cards and eliminate possibilities. For example, if there are no sets of two of a particular color, you can eliminate the possibility of sets of two of three different colors, also sets of 1,2, and 3 of three different colors. (So all sets of 2 and all sets of 1,2, and 3 must be monochromatic for the other two colors.) That works for everything, of course.
