Ahh!! Another Fablulous Time Waster!

Supposedly this is based on a test given to Air Force and Navy Pilots. Air Force guys are supposed to last 2 minutes, Navy 1 minute. So far my best is 13.324 seconds.

Enjoy!

I've heard that about non-Marines...

After about 10 minutes of trying (my 1st 5 were less that 1 sec!), my best was 17.688, but most are 10-13. When it kicks into high gear it's only a matter of time!

35.234 seconds... Just goes to prove I play too many video games ... But still not good enough for the Air Force or the Navy...

Insidious!

This is going to take up a lot of time. Worse than Mine Sweeper!

16.86 after about 20 minutes.

My son, 15, just did 19.3 after 9 or 10 tries. Playing video games must help.
