Yeah, that used to be my favorite game. I got really far into it, I would start seeing the lines in my sleep.

I keep hoping that I'll see "you've completed the last level" and then I'll be done.

Not going to happen. I got really far, but it just adds more dots.

Oh, and thanks for getting me hooked again, now those dreams are going to start up again.

If Jim completed level 13, then I absolutely have to complete level 14. There has to be at least one thing in this world where I have done more than Jim!

Currenlty on 13.
