How Fast Is Your Reaction Time?

I ran across this addicting web site that measures your reaction time. Call it your mental exercise of the day

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...n_version5.swf

BTW... I'm a bobbing bobcat (.2100 sec so far)
What is your reaction time?

I am an "ambling armadillo" with a time of 0.3722 . It says I need to improve and should have another cup of coffee (I've already had an extra cup this morning, though).

My lousy reaction time is one MORE reason to look for a walkable ER community and cut back on driving!! I had suspected as much. I am 59 and would imagine that my reaction time will worsen in the next 10-15 years, too.

Hey, with a walkable ER - that could be more exercise and quicker reaction times. Retire to what you love and you will be happier and healthier!

anyone else manage to get a 0.000 reaction time? (refer to sheep 4's untimely demise)

My wall is 0.17 seconds for probably 90% of sheep.

Double that and you'll be close. I did however have about 1 hour of practice at shoot-em-up video games this morning before heading off for w*rk.

I'm a consistently a bobbing bobcat. It says to have some coffee. If I have anymore coffee, I'll won't be able to see the sheep.

I got a sluggish snail because of a penalty for jumping the gun. Did again and got the bobbing bobcat.

Your REAL average is .2038.... nobody can do a 0.000 without luck... but you do have a great time otherwise...

bobbing at 0.2614 & i rarely drink coffee. i darted all but one in the same location, so i'm a consistant yet predictable bobcat. i don't know how little bo peep lost her sheep when all she had to do was click her mouse.

My consistent one is about .22 to .24.... but have gotten a good number in the .14 range...

I will put my .058 as luck...

However, does a bad mouse count?? I know I have hit the butten a few times and the sheep just keeps running...

Nah - that 0.000 is skill. The sheep was just a hair over the starting line when I got him. I had twitchy fingers.

After playing more, the best I can really do is 0.17x or so. 5 in a row, all 0.17x.
