And you would have had to have been looking the other way, seeing as you apparently did not catch the reversal of "sentence above".

"Above sentence" is more correct, because otherwise the sentence ends with a preposition.

Neither one of those is what I'm looking for.

Come on: be original! Forget about apostrophes; everyone knows how they are correctly used. It's no fun otherwise. Surely "Grammar Nazis" are supposed to point out the really small "insignificant" mistakes?

Nobody mentioned the run-on sentence in my last post, so there are clearly no grammar Nazis here.

You missed a couple! "mother" should be capitalized, "now is it" should be followed by a question mark, and it should be "an CNN presenter". I think.

Since when is 'mother' capitalised :blink:? I assumed that "now is it" is not really a question, but a figure of speech that seems like a question. I'm not sure why you think 'CNN' should be preceded by 'an'; it doesn't sound right at all...

Hardly, a good ol time, is it. Ofcourse most of this is just nonense, and alot of it is worss.!

I was bored, so I spent a few hours making a Flash version of the game (with online highscores). :)

Fun game per se. Couldn't score more than 170.
