Pop star

I've certainly been bored enough to surf around the Web looking for something, anything to do, but I'm not sure I would stoop to this: there's a Web site devoted to a game that offers nothing more than the simulated popping of bubble wrap. There's certainly something therapeutic and maybe a little addictive about actually holding those puffy plastic bubbles between your fingers and pressing them 'til they pop, but doing the same with a mouse? The sound's nice, but the little tactile thrill is gone. Normal mode requires you to actually click a bubble to pop it, while "addictive" mode allows you to just run the arrow around the sheet and hear the pops with no additional input required. You'd have to be pretty bored to find that a worthy way to waste your time ... but maybe I'll bookmark it anyway, just in case.
