61,500 on one computer and 53,500 on the faster computer. I shoot
get to popping too fast toward the end and shoot the hostage a lot.
Like on the 61,500, I had 71 hits, but the net dropped on the
hostage hits. On the faster computer when you get around 50-60 hits
he starts bobbing faster and faster . . . no way to even swing the
gun sometimes. 'Course I never excelled at computer games . . . the
grand demons always beat me.

LOL, don't worry about it Jim. The "hostage" is actually a terrorist in
disguise.

Shoot him only to get a -20,000. The computer speed has a lot to do
with the score, too. I keep getting a little better. It's getting
old, though.

Hostage is EXPENDABLE!

46,000 my first try. I would have done better, but that damn hostage
kept jumping up in front of the bearded one as I was slacking out the
trigger.

I can definitely see how a faster computer would make a different. This
one is 1 GHz, and I couldn't keep up at the end -- the best I could do
is wait for him to pop up in front of my sights.

It would be a tough game on yours. Mine is only 600 mghz. (did I get
it right?)

What's amusing to me is, I've played a few times and get a much higher score
if I take out the hostage in this situation with a double tap to take Osama
at the same time.

I tried a slight delay in pulling the trigger in case the hostage popped up,
but that let Osama get away and I ended up with a much lower score.

So in this game, but hopefully not in real life, take out the hostage.

There are those who say you SHOULD take out the hostage (shoot them in the
leg?):

1. It gets the hostage out of the way,
2. It confuses the criminal because your action is totally unexpected,
3. It will almost always save the hostage's life,
4. It will almost always end the criminal's life.

Bad Idea. Where is the Femoral artery? Who says this? What are his
training credentials? What anti-hostage group uses this tactic?

>1. It gets the hostage out of the way,

But it can use up body bags.

>2. It confuses the criminal because your action is totally unexpected,

You could also shoot yourself, that would be really unexpected.

>3. It will almost always save the hostage's life,

If he doesn't bleed out from the served femoral artery first.

>4. It will almost always end the criminal's life.

Maybe.

A small question for you, why is the use of a firearm called the use
of deadly force?

Processor speed makes no difference on the web version. Only the line speed
can affect the play. Slower line speed....slower play speed.

(1) The femoral artery is located in Femoral Texas.
(2) President Bush regarding hostage-held airliners.
(3) Unknown. Probably none. He does have advisors, but they probably don't
have advanced hostage-negotiating training either.
(4) None that I know of, but I wasn't thinking of a hostage rescue team
being involved, just "You and Me and the Baby Makes Three."

That's true. I think body bags are reusable, though.

That too. Or challenge the criminal to a game of Scrabble: Winner Take All.

Assuming you meant 'severed' rather than 'served' ("We'll have two femoral
arteries, medium, and two Cokes please")You're right. But, hey, severed
femoral arteries happen every day.

Correct. That's why I said 'almost.' There's always the unexpected.

Uh, I dunno. If I had to guess, and remember I didn't write the law nor
interpret it, it kinda means something like: 'Any force, the application of
which is designed or used in such a manner as to reasonably be expected to
cause death or serious bodily injury.'

Mularkey! If that was true, my wife would not have scored 91,000 points on her
fourth attempt on a P-133 all the time playing on a wireless hookup.
