Default Interesting Flash site

This Flash site has some interesting things:

At the very least, please look at "The Economists." It is in the Amusements menu, third square from the right end.

There is one of the disadvantages of Flash. People get so darned creative you can't move around in the site. I could not find the Amusements menu.

Easy to miss the first time.

Go to the site and then just wait about 15 seconds. The Amusements menu will materialize on the screen. Then point your cursor where the hand is pointing in the attached screen shot.

What a hoot! I love how the Economists can't handle any drops in the line. <g>

I also had fun with Bughunt. Will bookmark that site for next time I'm stuck waiting on the phone. :-)

It's the subtle little stuff like that that makes it funny. They smile as the line rises, then go from neutral to slight frown as it drops.

Yup. It's those faces that crack me up. And the way they huddle close and move side to side.

It might not be the most difficult Flash done there, but the result is great.

Here's what I sent to the Usual Suspects list that has sustained me through many a bad time and made good times better:
