Me: 4.3

Girlfriend: 3.1 arghhh

Hmm.

My first try: 20.13 (ok, I was unclear on the concept.)

Took me 5 trys to get down to 3.2

I found it very interesting that I made the same mistakes consistently. For instance:

I always pegged the center of the circle a little lower than it should have been.

In bisecting the angle, I tended to err towards the longer line.

In making a parallelogram, I always made one that converged to correct for "perspective."

In making a right angle, I erred toward making it closer to the outside border of the frame.

Did anyone else notice this kind of uniformity of error?

The fascinating part is that, even when I was aware of my error modes, it didn't help much.

The only uniformity of error I am noticing is that I never get close to the triangle center. It's screwing up my average. I'm gonna have to subcontract that one out from now on.

The parallelogram, angle bisecting, and right angles are a breeze for me. Some of the other ones......not so much.

Some of the high scores I am seeing are amazing........

Wow. I played at least a dozen times and couldn't get below 3.

By tilting my head, I got to 2.9.

When I tilted my head and closed one eye, I got 2.76. The head tilting really helps with the 90-degree figures. The single eye really helps with the parallelograms. Only problem is, I'm dizzy now.

Jim,

You may be an addict. Especially since you are now experiencing side effects.[:P]
