So, I love a good after lunch bowel movement as much as the next guy, maybe more. Lately, I've gotten into a bit of a groove where I go after lunch and play Tetris on my iPhone. A full game of 120 or 130 lines usually takes me about 15 minutes, well enough time for me to finish my business.
Tetris has always been my favorite game all the way back to NES days so you can imagine my joy upon learning I could take it anywhere with me and use the iPhone's touch screen interface to rotate and slam down the pieces. But just like the NES version, I was curious how far it would go and how fast it would get. The NES version never had a top out point as far as I can remember. Neither did the Ti-85 graphing calculator version that got passed around when I was in high school. So, I've been wondering what the top-out was for the iPhone version.
Well, today, I found it.
150 lines regardless of your score or if you still have lines to make. I was just now on the pot when I reached this momentous milestone. I was in the middle of kicking serious puzzle ass when the screen went blank and it transitioned to this screen:
I was filled with incredible mirth and like a boy who had made his first doody, I wanted to run to grab my mom and show her what I had done. 150 lines! Haha. Greatness achieved. Such a happy moment!
I shut off my phone and slid it back into my pocket. Then, I looked up and saw this:
I love those moments of extreme happiness paired with instantaneous moments of intense distress. So funny.
I guess the only way I can improve is to get 150 lines but with more points, and that means more disciplined and risky tetris attempts early on in the game. I may have to crap more so I can practice more and everyone in my life is just gonna have to live with that.
