    Really not off-topic

    I posting a link to a game which most folks might say is off-topic. But wait. This is a game that tests your skills in common layout activities; bisecting an angle, finding the center of a circle and triangle, determining a right angle, and convergence.

    Give it a try here, but be forewarned, it is very additive.

    I saw this earlier, and also thought it was a good skill exercise. 3.27 is my best score so far, but it took a few tries to get there.

    Click and hold the left mouse button to grab and move the blue square (or line, in some cases) where you think it needs to go. When you let go of the mouse button, the green lines show you where you should have moved the square.

    4.55 standing up cooking dinner not really paying attention.

    But, It looks addictive!

    And do I have the perfect competitive email list to send this too, once I practice a bit.

    Thanks for my little friday fun time waster...
