Nice game, thanks for link!

27.819 s was my personal best at 2.27 am. I suppose the key is to make the upper ball bounce its way as near the center as possible. Easier said than done, though.

For some reason the game worked better on Firefox than on Opera. On Opera, the mouse cursor moved too easily away from the game applet and disrupted the controls.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Urgh.

The belief that you only use 8 percent of your brain is completely and utterly retarded.  You don't evolve a complex, relatively power-hungry organ and use only 8 percent of it.

That said, I'm also quite rubbish at this game.  The best I've done is 31.91 seconds, though my average would be closer to 10.

EDIT:  Haha.  Freudian slip.  Brain =/= game

You just made a strong argument against your own point. ;)

Actually thats incorrect. The actual theory surmises that the CONCIOUS mind only uses 10% (or less) of our brain. The rest is used by your unconcious. Ever had an idea pop into your head? ...yeah

Even then the unconcious mind doesn't use your entire brain. Remember, not all the nuerons are firing at once, often only about 10% or even less are firing at any given time. If they were all firing, well, then all those catscans would turn up bright freaking red.

How are you so coordinated? My best is about 18 :(

EDIT: I mean 22. But it still merits a sad smiley (wtf, "sad smiley"?)  :(

Wow. Irritating is right.

It would be more fun if the physics on the bottom ball weren't so half-assed. You can bounce it by dropping the platform out from underneath it, but not by quickly flipping it upward.

The 90% subconscious part is a myth;  the brain simply isn't structured in that sort of neat division.

EDIT; additionally, whilst 100% of neurons may not fire at once (the effect would be akin to Grand Mal seizure), they are more-or-less all used at various points of time (well, except for a small number reserved for redundancy).  It's, when you think about it, pretty ludicrous to think that the most resource intensive organ in the human body (one our body structure is more or less built around supporting & supplying) would have any sort of unused chunks - natural selection would nip that in the bud sharpish.

Given that the main reason that childbirth is difficult for humans is because of the size of the babies head there would be a huge selection pressure against a 90% redundant brain from that alone.

As usual checking on Snopes is the best thing to do.
