Play Snake During Youtube Lags

Have you ever played Snake? It's a very simple game where the goal is to direct your "snake" to the random point in the game field. When you run into the point or dot, your snake becomes longer by 1 unit, thus, making it more difficult to avoid hitting a wall (makes you lose) or running into your own snake (makes you lose). You can move up, down, left, or right and the goal is to make your snake as long as possible. Definitely a time consumer.

When Youtube videos are buffering more of the video, you see a series of dots turning in a circle. That circle of dots will be your snake in one press of a key. Press [UP], [DOWN, [LEFT], or [RIGHT] key to begin your game of snake. Your video will resume like normal, but in the meantime you will have a game to play. What a brilliant idea! Might as well have some fun, as you wait for the video to continue!

Extra Tips for Slow Youtube Videos:
1. press [Ctrl] + [R] to reload the page
2. press the refresh button next to your URL bar.
3. Right click the video and play around or browse the settings, such as, take speed test.
4. Last resort, try a different computer or reconnect to the internet.

Have fun! -Brian
