A Birthday Poem for PZ’s 50th?

Nah, I’m not waxing poetic after today’s meetings.
Rather as an appropriate birthday piece I’m going to reprise part of a 2004 post that also spoke to PZ:

But, just to show that withdrawal was not complete, when I saw this guy:

I couldn’t help but think of PZ Myers.

I suspect most of you have a bit more bandwidth than you had in 2004 so click on that fellow (176 KB) and get up close and personal just like you know PZ wants you to do!

Happy birthday, PZ!

Keeping the Line Rider Upright

Well, there are a lot of ways to pass waste time with Line Rider.
It is easy enough to make a wall to smash him into or a jump for him to fly off of into infinity.
I thought I’d try keeping him upright, traveling at least 2/3 of the way across the screen on his first run and then stopping would be fun. I didn’t quite get him to stop at the end of the run and he’s still going after about 15 minutes now and hasn’t quite stopped. Will he fall over when he comes to a complete stop?

I’ll check before I go home to see what has happened to him.

Update 4 hours later: The line rider is upright and stopped on the line about half way across. Experiment terminated.
