DS Fanswag: Brain builder blowout

Are you feeling mentally down? Does calculating the cost of your groceries at your local supermarket taking you longer than usual? Well, we might just have something that can help you get mentally fit again. Whether you're 88 or 18 (sorry, if you're under 18 years of age or live outside the United States, you are not eligible), everyone can always use some extra mental exercises to help them get fit again.

What will you win? Well, that's simple. One grand prize winner will receive a copy of Brain Age 2 (valued at $20), Picross DS (valued at $20) and Brain Buster Puzzle Pak (valued at $20). With all those puzzle titles, you should be as mentally fit as a young Albert Einstein.

So, do your brain a favor and make a comment below. All we're asking is that you tell us the last time you were feeling mentally sluggish. Hey, we're all friends here, no need to feel embarrassed when you had some difficulty adding and subtracting with The Count.

Before you do that, though, make sure that you read the official rules before entering. The contest will be open from Wednesday October 10th, 2007 9:45am EST until Sunday October 14th, 2007 11:59PM EST.

88. I'm always mentally sluggish in the morning at work, I open doors without using my pass card a couple of times (which sets off an alarm). Also you say as mentally fit as young einstein but young einstein failed math.

89. Probably when I was playing a quick game of solitare on my laptop, and lost.

90. I'm going have to say right now. The kinda mental-numbness you get when you find out you never win these type of things and wonder why the hell you even try. =)

96. I am a little bit of mentally sluggish even if I don't admit to that.

97. I feel pretty sluggish now, but one of the sluggishy-est moments I've had recently was when it dawned on me that I had to turn the knob on the faucet instead of pushing it. (In my defense, it looked like a big flat pushbutton, the arrows on it had faded off, and pushing it DID yield SOME water flow. :) )

98. Staying up late to see a concert and then going to work the next day sure as hell made me sluggish.

Posted at 7:32PM on Oct 10th 2007 by AJ

99. I have been feeling just awful today, so I'm happy to see a Fanswag. Anyway, I had maybe 2 to 3 hours of sleep today. I'm not sure if I even fell asleep or if I was just drifting into it. I'm feeling both mentally and physically fatigued, as well as emo. XD Siiigh.
