Remember the classic arcade game Q*Bert? Well, Ed Heemskerk, who set the marathon record for Q*Bert at 68.5 hours in March, is now going for a 100-hour stretch on a single quarter. Today marks the start of DAY 3 in Ed Heemskerk’s quest. His score right now is almost 24 million points!
He has now been playing Q*Bert for over 50 hours straight and on one single quarter. This guy must be amazing to watch. It takes nerves of steel and a geek passion to win. Will he do it? Hard to say. He has passed the half way point and is going for the home stretch.
I know that I couldn’t play the game for that long. Cheer the man on. It is heroes like this who live out our geek dreams for us. You go Ed. Keep jumping. Keep winning.
