4’33”

Filed under: Uncategorized — dracil @ 10:20 pm

So actually I first came into the concept 4’33” from this game.  The way this game works is that if you’re the only person in the world playing the game for 4 minutes 33 seconds, you win.  If anyone else starts the game up, your game quits.  It’s pretty cool ’cause someone wrote a tracker showing who’s the current leader in the world.  I tried it for a while, but this guy in France kept jumping in and wouldn’t let me win, so I wrote a 3 line python script that restarted the game every time it quit and left it running overnight.  I’d won by the time I woke up.  :P

Then I wondered why it was 4 minutes and 33 seconds.  And this is the answer:

Still confused?  Then watch the orchestral version (with commentary).

Something else I also thought of later.  This game is played on forums all around the world.  It’s usually called something like “The last person to post in this thread wins”
