Spods, prepare for hyperdrive.

GCHQ aims to recruit computer hackers with code-cracking website. Government intelligence service targets 'self-taught' hackers with cryptic website that features no obvious branding:

possibly the most irritating game i've ever been sent:


http://www.foddy.net/Athletics.html

I've managed 9.6 meters so far but it was more of a crawl on the knees than a run.... I have also managed an unintentional minus 2.2 meters.....

arrgghh, I will complete the damned race.

Love how you can see the infiltration of the celts over the borders, particularly on 2nd/3rd most popular surnames :D

I figured leaving the page was cheating, but moving around looking for street signs was within the rules :)

geo guessr 8352 - it helped that one sign gave me a at least the right country and then got lucky with the placement to within 18km! Along with that there were 3 in a row where i was around 18000 kms away.....

good game - how far are you willing to follow the road!
