My God, this might just be the most annoying game ever. My head was spinning after two tries.

I completely don't get it.
Am I supposed to?

yes, guess the # of matches displayed.

Rhap: You guess the number of matchsticks in a very short amount of time -- too short to actually count them. This game is great! I am dubious of the high scores, however. 69006!? I think not.

Hot water burn baby!

friday? I hate how steak n shake servers burgers 24 hours a day , they say "it's always dinner somewhere!". BUT they don't server breakfast 24 hours a day. I mean, COME ON!

I think flash friday is everyday.

apparently I have the idiot part down pat, and I am just trying to master the savant part now.

Not all autistic people can do things like this - in fact, most can't.

I'd bet almost no non-autistic/savant types could..

of course not, silly. autistics count toothpicks, not matchsticks.

having bonnie hunt drop them seems to help, too.

Whew! That takes focus!
