The Most Addictive Online Thing I've Done in a Long While
I don't know what this flash game is called, and I can't read the instructions as they're in Japanese, but: this little flash game is great. Here's how to play:
1. Press "Start"
2. Wait for the countdown: 3, 2, 1
3. A group of numbers will flash on the screen for just under one second; your job is to try and remember the position of those numbers.
4. After the numbers flash on the screen, they will be replaced by circles.
5. Your job is to try and put the numbers in the correct order from lowest to highest.
After 10 progressively more difficult levels, your score will be tabulated. The lower your score the better. The idea here is that your visual memory (AKA: your immediate perceptual memory) is related to your age, so the better you score, the "younger" your brain is.
The best I can seem to score is 7 out of 10, which is tabulated (depending on the difficulty of the particular level) about "20 years old." Let's face it, though, we're a society obsessed with youth. I'm not going to be satisfied until I score an 18 or lower.
