Phun is fun. It's a 2D physics program, and it's geekishly addicting. You can do pretty much whatever you want. Create matter, command friction and gravity, use hinges, motors, and springs, ect. Today I made a motorboat and the Trojan Horse.

Oh I can't wait to use this! It looks so cool!
One week left of term one schooling and then free time for two weeks to devote to the swede's phun!
Ho! Ho! Ho! to the gameboy I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe.
Rain may fall and wind may gale,
But my battery is yet to fail.
So in a dank corner I will lie,
And watch the hours go sailing by.
And while I lie in this nintendo-induced trance,
I decide I'll give Pokemon Crystal a chance.

what's the point of a physics engine without lots of explosions? I don't see this taking my attention away from Smash Bros. Brawl anytime soon.

That may be true, but for those of us who lack a Wii or friends whom to which play Wii with, not to mention lack SSBB on top of that piled mess, ... yeah, I'm still not downloading it. I mean, it looks really, really cool and all, hats off to dem Swedes for making a physics program that's simple and floors any American endevours (America: second or third best for the past how many decades ), but, wait, was there a point to my pointing out stuff?
That demo vid blew my mind, tho'. I mean, liquifying an object? That's just wicked awesome.

Or those of us in Europe...
As soon as I have hours upon hours to waste, I'll get right into this.

Hours and hours are something I do have. I finished high school last Friday, I don't have a job yet because Michigan sucks, and college classes won't start until the 19th.
And today I made... war. I cloned towers,catapults, and robots of death. And some moats to hinder said death robots.
Natural selection saw to it that professional heroes who at a crucial moment tended to ask themselves questions like "What is my purpose in life?" very quickly lacked both.
