If they are, they are just making themselves look big; personally I don�t see that being a problem if used in appropriately. That is after all human nature, and who is to question it, are the most successful species on the face of this planet living in one of the richest countries; we must be doing something right don�t you agreee?

I'm a little curious about that myself. Even on the obvious ones, for example I got apple as one, I still had two seconds tick off the clock so 38 points for that one. To get 397 you would have to answer 7 of them before any time ticked off the clock and you only get one second for the other three. Unless I'm missing something.

If you type 110 wpm, that's less than a second per word; and if you're a teenager with lighting-quick reflexes, you could get started in less than a second. All you have to do is eliminate the "thinking" part, and that's doable: if you play several times, you'll notice search terms you've seen before. If you play enough times, I imagine you'll know all of them. Then it's just reflexes.

Ok, I actually got one right with 20 seconds left on the clock. I finished typing before all the pictures came up (as they are revieled from top to bottom). So appearently it is possible to get 397, but I don't see me doing it in this lifetime.
