Sand, Hell and Kittens

I was very upset to find that my job was to help the souls get to heaven. I thought I had been given a whip to beat them with.

And I couldn't figure out what the Hell was the goal of the Sand ones, but they were cool. Plant eats water, Fire eats oil quickly and wax (cera) slowly, salt saturates water, ??? eats everything...

They are just toys, really.

The moving thing at the bottom is supposed to be a slug. Water makes it grow, salt kills it.

Cat sledding is great fun!
The others are cool too. Thanks.

More proof that at any given time there are only like five or so interesting web pages on the internet, and they just make the round between all the major link sites: previously seen on Fark, Digg, and Linkfilter.

Oh hell, it deserves it anyway. For the sand game especially.

Under the right conditions, you can make a giant, flaming "slug" in the Hell of Sand game.

I've always wanted to make a giant, flaming slug.

I'd say there are probably, on any given day, five or six sites that are interesting to a broad enough segment of the population to 'make the rounds' of the major link aggregators.

There are lots more that are plenty interesting to specialists, though, like the 'favorite fonts' page a few links down. I think metafilter should have a little bit of both, personally.

Spoilers: A "sledge" really is just a "sled".

Here's a better version of the World of Sand. Gives a much bigger play area.

Shamelessly stolen from

Ah, I was wondering what the moving thing in World of Sand was, and why ceramics - "Cera" - was burning. Thanks. :)

No, I'm not opening that World of Sand link again. Last time I opened that I was there for three days.

When the slug thing goes nuts, apply salt just above its center point. That'll calm him right down.

addyct, in that version its not nearly as fun to play "big slug, little slug".

great post
