    Amazon decided to sign me out at the *moment* I submitted the longest and most complicated hit in that batch.

    Thanks Amazon! Why not give me a paper cut and pour lemon juice in it!

    Had a chance to meet a good chunk of the Globetrotters, as a kid. Absolutely great fellas, saw I was nervous as crap and struggling to come down to get a T-shirt autographed, so one of them ("Hi-Lite", if I recall) came up, signed my shirt, then pointed up at the stands, acting like he was shocked at something, to distract me, and when I looked away, he took the shirt, ran comically-quickly to some of the others, and had them sign it in like 30 seconds or less, then ran it back to me.
    Freaking fantastic guys.

    @Daniel@Daniel Thanks for that! I was able to scoop one. Seems like kind of a bogus psychobabble theory ("I am a perfect blend of my different selves" lol). Rubbish

    11 minutes for me, going at a medium-slow pace.
    Pretty much instant approval, as well.
    Thank.

    I was just trying to figure out how to post this one. Too Slow! :)

    Yeah it was, umm, 10+ min but I had to change two light bulbs so that messes with the timing.

    Seriously, I'm sitting here working. One light bulb (of three) flickers. Then it goes out. Then another flickers. Then it goes out.

    I was half expecting spoopy music next.

    Anyone working on Danna Gurani "Help Us Answer Questions About Images!" HIT? Half the time the images won't load.

    I just loaded one and the image loaded. Really frustrating, too, because the rules demand I say "unsuitable image" but I could actually help this hypothetical person solve their computer problem.

    I loaded a second and the image loaded. Not really statistically valid.

    I sometimes have hits whose images won't load, though.

    Edit: Yeah this HIT has a lot of border cases

    Ehh I got $4.19 just before going to bed, can't be a terrible day.

    Y'all have a successful morning. If I can ever shift my schedule I may see you there, just probably not regularly.

    Good luck!

    Is it just me, or is "Perceptions of Eyewitness Accuracy" a broken HIT? It says I failed the attention check even though I answered everything perfectly

    TO says that the wording is.....awkward. There's a bunch of rejects reported (and a few approvals).
    :(
