    Time Waster

    Whip me for the low content post, but here is another time wasting link. See how many balls of paper you can get into file 13.

    Great time waster! My best was 8. I'm sure if I wasted some more time, I could do a lot better.
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    That is a mean fan. I tried maybe 6 times and my best was only 4 .

    Enough wasting time on that. Back to posting on Cyburbia.

    My best was 6. The stronger breezes made the paper look like my curveballs when I pitched in high school.
