For me, Anton, it's not about looking bad, or trying to keep up, it's simply preferring to see green. Even if I get 10 in 200 seconds, and get a score of, you know, 400 points, I for some reason prefer that over 6 right in 50 seconds for 500. lol. I don't really know why, actually.
Subliminal message being sent. Did it work?
