    After several attempts I was able to spank that monkey at 57 miles per hour. Despite the comparatively slow speed my tank did not run out of gas before reaching the final destination.

    I got a few over 100 mph, but my mouse seemed to be off the screen already and the hand hadn't moved. It doesn't seem to respond properly to my mouse. It stalls halfway. Maybe you need a fast connection for it to work right???

    I've come to the conclusion that my cheap optical mouse is incapable of proper function once it has passed the 190mph mark, as it seems to unexplainedly appear some way behind the line at wheich I started.

    Nah, it's the game or connection or something, not the mouse. I have a trackpad, and it's doing the same thing.

    Actually, my trackpad (at least i think its a trackpad. Do you mean one of those little touch sensitive things you get on laptops? fares better, with my record at about 350. I recall having done better witha regular mouse last time i played this. Perhaps I'll have to find one.

    My friend told me of her uncles record- 800ish mph, but knocked the keyboard off the table and hit the dog. Spanking the monkey is fun everybody, but play safe when others are present.

    My Internet connection is a fast one. Methinks my trembly hand is the culprit.

    One of my martial arts buddies got me into this.

    Fastest I spanked was around 380 mph.

    Yeah I think I have gotten into the thousands earlier but I only tried a few more times

    I heard that was just a myth.

    It is indeed a myth. The worst that can happen is hair will grow on palm of offending hand. :biggrin:

    I've wondered why that's happening. :wink:

    I had an idea; it could be a cure for baldness.
    Now, that's using your head !
