Think paper-wad basketball with field goal kicking practice with windspeed on in Madden, and you've got this time-waster brought to you bah the BBC.

I can't believe that someone not only made 3,502 in a row, but sat there and took the time to do it.

If you think 3502 in a row was a waste of time, just wait a few days and see if this thing catches on. If it becomes popular, you know there are enough losers out there who will say to themselves "I gotta beat that record" and drive the number ridiculously high.

How mad do you suppose the guy was when 3503 missed?

You ain't kidding. I got pissed enough to stop after mastering...12...in a row. I feel accomplished at that number.

Not half as pissed as the NEXT guy who misses on 3502 will be

I don't think they did. It's not an official bbc.co adress so I guess its just a parody on their learning zone stuff. Could be wrong.

EDIT: My bad, it would appear it is owned by the bbc and they're using it as a vehicle to advertise some of their programmes (The Office etc.)

Just hit number 12, and realized I am now out of computer paper! If I go to the store do I continue from where I was or do I have to start over?

I find that if you can visualize the paper going in the bin beforehand, it improves your numbers dramatically.

Just went unconcious, hitting 53 in a row. My previous high of 23 was shattered. Nowhere near the world record, though. Eh, good enough for me.

On my ISDN connection here at work (don't ask) the game was slowed WAY down, so much so that I easily hit 22 in a row when my previous high at home on my cable internet was, maybe 11, so I guess I could see how without a time limit someone could hit 100, then walk away, then do 100 more and get up to 3502, though I rather think they put that there to make people addicted to the game trying to reach that impossible score.

A similar game that I think is much more satisfying.

TEN THOUSAND?! I can't even get 1000!

What are the planes for? Do you catch them? Do you throw paper at them?

You throw paper at it and if you hit it you get 400 points.

Throw paper at them, and then try to catch it on the way down, then shoot it at the basket. You also get point modifiers for consecutive shots made. My high is 1400.

The throwing mechanics frustrate and eventually anger me. Glad you guys are having fun with it.
