Why, Buddha, why... Why did you find it necessary to ruin what had been a tremendously productive day? I'm at ~385 tops. Who's done better?

395.4 so far. I'm playing until quittin' time or I hit 400.

ufez jones just got 402.5, which must hurt Terry Armstrong quite a bit.

400.1 - What a way to kill a Friday afternoon, thanks FB.

410.4, Fresh for you suckas.

Bah, best I could get before giving up was 396.6. So close, yet feeling kinda loserlike after spending about 1/2 hour on this game.

Excellent, I was wonder what happened to this site, it was posted on MeFi awhile back but with a different url. I love the other games too.

Oh man, this thing is killing me. Best is 389 or something. You really have to CLICK the mouse hard to hit the strength and accuracy just right. My colleagues are starting to wonder if I'm nuts. Guess I better go now.

Four Hundred and Eleven Yards Awwww yah! (does victory lap around the office) (proof by picture to be posted later) Hint: if you are going to miss on the second click, miss on the right side instead of the left. It seems to carry a bit further if you slice instead of hook. But my shot was DEAD centre of the white area. I'm not sure how someone gets a longer drive that I did, but I'm going to retire now.

Read it and weep! I also hit the baseball 548.5 feet, but I didn't have a chance to take a picture of that before it reset itself.

New challange! Try hitting it BACKWARDS!

posted by grum@work at 06:17 PM on April 11, 2003

Damn, grum you must have to click fast like a mofo to get it to go backwards. Anyway, I finally broke 400! 401.9. Wow. I can quit now.

posted by worldcup2002 at 07:30 PM on April 11, 2003

Finally! I hit 400 even. That's it, no more. This time, I mean it.

fuck you, grum. twice. you beat my distance record, and my negative record was around -36.4. You are now my mortal enemy.

It was easier to click fast than to time a click for me.

posted by corpse at 09:01 AM on April 12, 2003

Something is really fishy about this game. If you just tap the swing button once to start it and don't tap it again (let it do it itself), you don't always end up with the same distance each time. So there is some random factor that is being added/subtracted each time. That said, I don't think I'm even going to be able to come close to corpse's inverted driving record. I bow to his excellence. Ufez: I have a mortal enemy? Cool. Am I supposed to taunt you on a regular basis? Or do I just laugh maniacally every time I beat you? I'm new to this whole "mortal enemy" thing. Does this mean you are my mortal enemy too? Or can I have someone different?

posted by grum@work at 10:16 AM on April 12, 2003

Damn. I was sort of hoping to have grum as my mortal enemy. Best of luck to you, ufez. Looks like I'll have to pick someone else. Oh, who am I kidding - Succa's been my mortal enemy since last year's NHL playoffs. And just so you all know, succa shares his real name with a male porn star. A gay male porn star. I googled it (succa's real name, not "gay male porn star", smartass).

Hey, i just hit 413.2 yards! It asked me to submit my name, but it's not on the high score list- presumably because it's tied with those other two guys who had 413.2. Crap. Guess I gotta shoot for 413.3 or higher now... :(

I'm sure it's a lovely photo, squealy. However, I can't seem to load it from my end. The place that it is hosted on seems to require a password, so I think you'll have to post it somewhere else for everyone to see it.

Drat! Anyone got a cracked copy of Flash FXP? You'll just have to take my word that I drove an astouding 413.9 yards for the moment. Honest.

posted by squealy at 03:45 AM on April 14, 2003

OK, let's have another go at posting that pic.

posted by squealy at 02:35 PM on April 14, 2003

I just want to point out ... I was trying to do this on a Mac. Akin to trying to score with Julia Roberts with your zipper wide open.

posted by wfrazerjr at 09:13 PM on April 15, 2003

Yeah, like you would have had a chance with your zipper up. Good day, sir!

For God's sake, if the woman hooked up with Lyle Freakin' Lovett, my chances can't be all that bad, can they?!?
