If you had told my younger self that we'd be using the latest and greatest in computer technology to broadcast people playing Asteroids all around the world, I... well, I would have felt that maybe my life had meaning. Not that I was ever especially great at Asteroids.
But one John McAllister is doing exactly that right now, and it sounds like he's closing in on the game's world record. He's currently over 41 million points (which doesn't show properly on the game, as the score rolls over at a certain point) and he's still breaking the big rocks into little rocks.
Somewhere the 9-year-old me is completely losing his mind over how awesome this is. 34-year-old me is pretty into it, too. If the chat room dwellers are accurate, he'll be crossing into world record territory later tonight... provided he can keep it together, of course.
You might tune in and see no actual movement. That just means that the guy's taking a bathroom break or something.
UPDATE: 41,338,740 is now your new Asteroids world record, provided everything is properly verified as legitimate. Assuming it is, John McAllister is now the King of Asteroids! This beats the previous record of 41,336,440, set in 1982 by Scott Safran. Safran passed away after an accident in 1989.
