Did your 80+ meter toss have a double Loop-de-Loop over the chimney?

The best shots clear the chimney high and don't do loops.

I've played this game much longer than I care to admit... I think I sent it to GP long ago. The strategy... drag the plane to the top left hand corner so the plane "sticks" to the corner (no longer receiving mouse inputs), then move the cursor around to the other side of the window and play with the exact height release point. As soon as the applet realizes that the cursor is in the window, it will register this motion as instantaneous acceleration. In the right place, you can easily get HUGE distances. Cool

Edit: Ahh, look-- there is a youtube video for this. Woops. Suppose I should read everything before I post.

The rank must be based off from whole meters, not portions of. 114 has a ranking of 6779...

My 114.69 just gave a place of 6804, so it is all being adjusted someplace. Maybe we were just bumping each other for that one position. Very coincidental, but maybe....
