Incidental Intercourse Inversion

I searched the web far and wide but I couldn’t find the phrase “incidental intercourse inversion” anywhere. I’m guessing it’s just a minor f*ck up.

4 Fun Flash Games

These fun Flash games have great time-wasting potential. One game has been a favorite of mine for a few years and it’s fair to say I’ve lost more than a few days playing it. Give these puzzles and brain-teasers a try, you might find a new favorite Flash game of your own.


Net Flash GameNet by Pavils Jurjans

Once I got the hang of this game I found it to be as addictive as simultaneously smoking crack and popping bubble wrap. The goal is to spin as few tiles as necessary so every red device has a path leading back to the center square. The key to getting a high score is to solve the puzzle without making any extra turns (which you can do because every game has a logical solution and you’re never forced to guess). I haven’t found a game that couldn’t be solved yet and I’ve played MANY times. In fact, I’ve played so many times that on a good day I can finish the biggest boards in about 2.5 minutes in “Normal” mode and 5 minutes in “Wrapping” mode without going over the “Minimum Turns”. Can you beat that?

This playful little game is a cross between Tetris and Jenga. The seemingly simple goal is to stack the pieces as high as possible but the 2D physics engine makes it a little more challenging than you might expect.

Flash Continue Time Clock

After seeing the Continue Time clock on YouTube I simply HAD to reproduce it in Flash. As it turns out, Johan Bisse Mattsson already beat me to it and (according to one comment by AM) may have inspired Sander Mulder to build his real-life brass and aluminum version. I like Johan’s virtual Hand in Hand clock because you can drag the hands around and watch them flail about. On the other hand, so to speak, it doesn’t show the hours, minutes and seconds when clicked on like mine does. So I’ve got that goin’ for me. 😉

How Good is Your Eye?

This neat little Flash app tests your ability to eyeball (estimate) geometric angles and distances and then compares your results to the last 10,000 people who took the test.

I got the following results:

Parallelogram 7.6 3.2 6.1
Midpoint 1.4 7.3 4.5
Bisect angle 0.9 4.8 3.5
Triangle center 2.2 1.2 3.0
Circle center 5.1 1.0 1.4
Right angle 5.5 0.6 4.2
Convergence 10.0 2.0 6.4

Average error: 3.90 (lower is better)

How did you do?

Do you think this sort of skill correlates to your design sensibility in any way or helps you perform design related tasks?

ALL CAPS Was My Only Choice!

Ordinarily it’s fun to take a break from a project and help people using my PageFlip files but yesterday was an exception to the rule. You see, yesterday was the day when Ryan Libre decided to buy my Improved PageFlip Flash file. Again, ordinarily this isn’t a problem but, as you’ll soon see, Ryan is an exceptional ignoramus. As evidence of this matter I’ve included our e-mail correspondence in its entirety, not just select parts of it. Enjoy

3 Fun Flash Games

I’ve been playing these 3 fun Flash games way too much! One game is super simple, one game is fairly complicated and the other one is just right.


Chat NoirSwitch

This little gem of a game revolves around the basic concept of collecting dots that are the same color as you while avoiding ones that aren’t. To make things super simple the dots are either black or white and all you have to do is click the mouse to change colors. What could be easier?


Great graphics and fun shoot’em-up gameplay make this Flash action game a sure winner. Roam from room to room acquiring cash and weapons to upgrade your robot and vanquish the baddies. The first 4 levels are free but you will have to pay if you want to play them all.

Spin Black CircleBubble Tanks 2

This game uses the same motion controls as RoboKill, position is adjusted with the keyboard while aiming and firing is handled by the mouse. There are some simple equipment upgrades to keep things interesting but mostly it’s just a fun point and shoot type of game.
