Jetman conquers boredom, occasionally miffs

Adding to Facebook’s status as the world’s premier soul-sucking timesink are “Applications”, which allow users to play some primitive games online. One particularly popular Application is Simeon Dorsey’s Jetman, a simple game of dodging obstacles while flying through space. While at first incredibly mind-numbing and stupid like everything else on Facebook, the game becomes fun when challenging friends in the “Jetman Arena”. Also, the Jetperson can be customized with a few invite credits. Check out this excellent cow theme:

The frustrating thing about this game is that sometimes the random terrain generator comes up with an obstacle that is completely impassible (see below). It puts an aggravating end to your record-setting journey. Despite these setbacks, even the Thumb Butler himself can’t resist strapping on his jetpack and killing a few hours.
