Deeply geeky. As if the nerdy humor and nerdier meta-humor of XKCD weren’t enough, this enterprising coder (apparently with a little too much time on his hands) created an interactive simulation of the raptor attack scenario brought up here and solved here. It takes a little imagination for those squares to look like raptors — although it’s not a stretch for yourself … oh, burn! It ain’t exactly new or groundbreaking, but hey, it’s Friday.

Click here to start and hit F5 or reload to try again. Your square will run in the direction of the mouse. I’ve stayed alive for 2.5000000000000000001 seconds so far, and the creator says he got 2.8. Come on, the debate doesn’t start for an hour, you may as well do this. Tell us how you stack up.
