I just got a link from BoingBoing to the appalling Juice Fruit blog site and believe me it is bad!

Anyway, on the Juicy Fruit site there is a game to see how long you can hold down you mouse key on a part of the site (its all done in Flash). The first thing I noticed was that the longest times that they have got listed on the page is over 99 days!!!! How can this be? Well, I decided to have a go and see if I could beat the system. And what do you know… I did! Whilst I am typing this the clock on the Juicy Fruits site is still ticking away and I haven’t had to do anything like taping down the button on my mouse.

So how did I do it? Simple, I used the menu! What you have to do is:

  1. Click and hold down the left mouse button.
  2. Whilst holding down the left button, click the right button to bring up the Flash context menu.
  3. Release both buttons.
  4. Move your mouse cursor away from the context menu and the flash content.
  5. Minimize the webpage.

So long as you do not move the mouse cursor over the flash content on the webpage the clock will continue to tick away. You can restore and minimise the page till you hearts content and the clock will keep ticking.
