Spiritual And Physical Preparation (Defender World Record Saga - Part Four Of Five)

Repetitive stress injuries suck.

When I started this experience on Saturday morning (11/16/13), playing the game was the last thing I'd have trouble with. That part was going to be a cakewalk. 

I was extremely good at Defender and had never had a place in the game where I was having difficulty getting myself extricated from. I had "clocked" the score (it resets to 0 at a million points), the Smart Bombs (reset to 0 after getting 256 Smart Bombs), and the waves (reset at 256 back to 0, so the game "starts over") plenty of times so it didn't seem like it would be too difficult. 

My play was good enough to get over a million points on a ship in the 1980s, and nowadays I could do pretty well, so I figured I could handle this. I'd even played a 4.5 hour mini marathon to get my head around what I was up against. No problem. 


  1. Here's where my limited amount of biking expertise comes in handy, my friend. You need a Camelbak.

    1. I thought/still think the same thing, but my mentors disagree. I figure it would be great for fluids but people say the weight isn't worth it.

      Hell I don't have to wear it all the time. It will be a part of next time, I am sure of it.
