Are You a Genius?

I can't tell you how much time Andrew and I wasted on this game tonight thanks to Laurie. He wouldn' t give up until he got to 18 seconds, but he stayed at it long enough to compose his own theme music for the task. He's got a gift, what can I say?

It says if you can make it to 18 seconds you're a genius, what does it say about you if you spend two hours playing it?

What was your time?? I made it to 7.4 something and then made myself quit...why did you have to let me know about this on a night when I can't sleep?? :)

I got to 19.7 seconds on my 4th try! 14 on the first. I will have to test Joshua on this one he would probably go for 2 hours if it took that long to get to 18 also though.

Maria said...

I say you're a genius if you can understand the instruction "click onto the red block with jump over it". Am I reading it too late at night, or is that not comprehensible?

scribbit said...

Yup, instructions were obviously written by someone with English as a second language. You have to click and drag the red block and avoid touching the blue blocks as they zoom around you and avoid touching the black walls.

Oh my goodness! I found this someplace too and I am terrible!!! What I read is that they test fighter pilots with this. I actually am a pilot, however I guess I would make a TERRIBLE fighter pilot!

Chris said...

Now why did you go and do that? You know I'll be up until the we hours trying to beat the time. I better make sure I have a lot of coffee on hand for tomorrow.

kailani said...

I couldn't even understand the directions! LOL!

Kristina said...

OMG, that is addicting. I'm finding it to be harder with this laptop pad thingy than a mouse, though. I need to boot Hubby off the PC so I can use the mouse! Thanks for the link, this is fun. (and yeah, the instructions are less than clear)

44.5 seconds on the third try. Tell Andrew to chalk one up for the engineers and $400 Dell desk tops.

Yuva said...

24.55 my best time ever, but I've played before, normally I'm in the 12-15 second range.

FYI, if you move up to the top left corner after the larger bar moves away, you can let go of the mouse buttons and still get 11.9 seconds.

That is freaking addicting!

My husband will have a field day with this one.

Kurt Schroeder said...

I would say that anyone saying they got over 30 seconds should put a screenshot on their blog. Just hit print screen, paste to MS Paint, save as JPG or BMP, and upload. Vidcaps are better.

BTW I got .3 seconds on my first try.

Geekwif said...

Well, I'm no genius. My best was 6.5 seconds. In my defense though, I only played for 2 minutes and all I have for a mouse is my trackpad on my laptop.

Lisa Milton said...

No genius here this morning, but I know I will play with it again later. My husband will be compelled to reach genius level AT ALL COSTS. =]

I'll have to see what the kids can do.

Mamma said...

I haven't even clicked on the link yet, but I know this is going to suck up my whole afternoon.

Thanks a LOT!!

I got to 13 seconds, but I quit after about 2 minutes. Stupid job wanting work out of me.

clipgator said...

Thanks for the tip, odat_kim! I guess being a "genius" is less about playing the game and more about figuring out the patterns!

Cool game!

MC Milker said...

LOL - what fun- I would say you have a great reaction time, not that you are a genius..do they go together?

Tracy M (google won't let me sign in)

I got 48 seconds on my third try...

Melissa R. Garrett said...

21.297! Those blocks really start to fly, don't they?! It's very addictive!

Amy W said...

I made it to 13.675 on my fifth try! Thanks for helping me waste my last 30 minutes at work! :).

Kurt Schroeder said...

Yes that makes a lot of sense. The military trains their pilots and then vets them through a flash applet. I think the genius is the person that sees that and chooses NOT to play. Yeah, I'm kind of a dick today.

Pendullum said...

Ohhh.
I would be killed if I pick up yet another nasty internet habbit...

Heffalump said...

I think its safe to say that we all have our moments of being a genius...and we probably all have our moments of being...less than genius.

Miscellaneous-Mum said...

I don't need a GAME to tell me I'm a genius ;) ;)

Coach J said...

Oh, I like that comment by misc-mum. But getting a 28. something on try #1 really doesn't hurt the ego!!

Leslie said...

After losing way too much of my life on the Monty Python Spamalot game, I only allowed myself to try it three times and the best I did was 5 seconds. Clearly, I am no genius.

Stine said...

hahaha - the answer is no!

Lauri said...

Sorry about that. Don't let him try Planarity!

Mikala said...

I got to 23.42 seconds on my 3rd try...

JC Thomasin said...

ah! I didn't get that you could click and drag it! *goes back to try again*

I wonder what this means on my genious rating...

*grins*
