Here's Your Chance to Destroy the New York Times, One Page at a Time

Posted By on Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 1:21 PM

The New York Times published a fascinating article today on silly, simple, time-wasting games that have become absurdly popular in the smartphone toting, hand-held gaming world we live in today — think Tetris, Angry Birds, and Fruit Ninja.

But the best part for those who are as easily distracted as I am (cursed Internet!) is the silly, simple, time-wasting game they embedded at the top of the story, which gives you the opportunity to destroy every element on the page in an "Asteroids"-like frenzy.

I've seen similar web applications that allow you to do the same on literally any page you wish, but the fact that NYT has run with this is kinda cool.

Read the story and play the game here.
