Workaholic Intervention (6.11.7)...

Work is too important in our culture. For too long we have worshiped workaholism and put way too much emphasis on work ethic. So to help people break free of the bonds of overexertion. In light of this, every Monday, I will post a video or a game as simple online time-wasters. Something to keep you less productive at work, home, or school, you know, just so you don't work so hard. It's for your own good.

Today we look at the "line rider" phenomenon. A simple game where you draw lines and then send an animated rider to ride your creation. You can check it out here, and be amazed at how quickly you get a God complex in controlling this line rider's universe. Here's a video of what can happen if you let it take control of you.

I think the person who made this has officially been cured of his workaholism (but not of his love for Mario).
