0.221 average on the first try.

Figure that's good enough (at least until one of the whippersnappers puts up a better score).

I got sick last week and I'm still on some medicine, my head feels three feet wide and I swear I did not drink anything (oh, generic Nyquil does have alcohol in it, right?) I got a 0.3012

My accidental 0.03 may have had some thing to do with that.

My best individual time which I got three times in two five turn tries is .219. If I remember correctly that is about what I got in my high school drivers ed class where we did it with our feet.

I remember at the time our ancient teacher beat all but the very quickest of us kids. (He must have been at least 50).

Just did two more sets of five. The first was slow. The second with more fierce concentration netted two .219s and one .218. That seems to be right about my best capability.

Great post, I have sent the link on to a couple of teachers I know.
That should keep the young learners busy for a while.
Maybe some one could try it after a night of drinking just to see how much they degrade.
