Website of the Day: Press the Spacebar

It's pretty clear we all love mindless distractions on the computer, so why not have some fun with the keyboard too? Press the Spacebar is a funny interactive site that measures how many times you can....wait for the spacebar.

You select a time frame of either 5, 10 or 20 seconds then see how many times you can hit the spacebar in the chosen time. After a few rounds you can go up against your personal high sore or the all time high for the site. If you're slow I suggest brushing up on your typing skills.

To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

I'll try this as soon as my boss leaves the room (he might look at me funny for rapidly hitting my space bar). I do have to say though, I broke my last laptop on one of these silly games. It was a "Spank the Monkey" game in which you move the mouse to hit the monkey as hard and as fast as you could. I had a touchpad on my old Toshiba lappy and when I slid my fingers across it quickly, it brushed up against the keyboard and the "c" went flying! It was still under warranty, but they wouldn't fix it because it was "cosmetic." I went three more years (the rest of the life of the laptop) without a "c" key...just a little button in it's place :)

That's so funny. I always say that if I'm on a stranded island and had to do work there, I'd find a way to distract myself. Now I know that if I had nothing but a spacebar to press, that would be enough.
