How I Roll

At 21h23 last night, Nate Gravelle, a student of mine, commented to let me know he had demolished my Flight Control high score. He attached a screenshot:

At 7h30 this morning, I spent ten minutes of useful prep time digitally fabricating my own high score:

At first he swears I'm lying. Then I dupe him with the screenshot1 and he fumes for a second, then swears he'll top me. I doubt he's looked up from the iPod Touch he's tucked beneath his desk since school began.

Let's keep this between you and me, 'kay?

    Why not erase the number from the original screenshot twice and replace?

    Maybe you’re just going a more artistic route?

    Feel free to delete both as I need no further evidence of stupidity accumulating on the Internet.

    I guess Nate doesn’t read your blog?

    My high score is a pathetic 49. :(

    @Rhett, only a matter of time, I reckon.
