OK, after successfully wasting about 20 minutes I had a high of 1397 and a low of 45 (the 45 was really, really ugly).

Wasn't Kitty Cannon a porn star in the 70s?


A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Just clicked on it to play again. First hit 2109, and it hit the spikes at the end and I had lots of momentum still going. It seemed like I hit everything.

Yes, I did submit my score. But I think that it must be a static page there and they just typed it in and never changed. SO I am sure there must be others out there that have submitted much higher distances.

Pretty sure 11 is the lowest possible... That is the lowest I could get. I used 10 degrees at basically no power, and went straight into the spikes.

I still liked my 45 from before. It was almost full power at 10 deg, and nailed the spikes at full speed. Ugly.
