Escapa! The Game

My school is probably far from the most technologically advanced but I think it does a nice job. We have a couple of computerized question banks for anatomy and microbiology. What’s becoming common across the country but is still cool is that histology and next year pathology, all the slides are Virtual Microscopy. They’re all on this portable 100 GB hard drive and you can zoom in and take screen shots and save interesting things you find. Below is an example.

The problem becomes when I’m using my computer to study I have a tendency to take “internet study breaks”. Of recent this game is one of my favorite online distractions.

It is tough. I’ve heard some ridiculous times on this thing, heading into the minutes. I don’t know if I believe that. My best time is just short of 25 seconds.
