It's like you want to do something even though the computer(ie society) tells you not to do it. Curiosity is what drives mankind to new discoveries and new leaps of the imgaination. The big green button it totally COOL

What a way to start my fourth page of BGB comments! Thanks WCRMJr! - David
that was fun ... p.s where is the button on the black page
Paul Clifton - Atlanta Ga /
Not telling ... - David

Keep trying! - David
It was better than SEX.

A bit befuzzled and a tad woozled.
Jill Resnick - Marietta, GA /
Befuzzled is good; Woozled is just excellent! - David
Like no button pushed will ever be the same.
How many buttons must one man push before he's called a man.
Buttons, no problem, bring on the buttons.
I wonder if Dave's downloading a virus evertime I push this button?
I look forward to the days of no buttons!
Hey, I really pushed Dave's button.
How many hours will these Green buttons last?
What purpose do these buttons serve?
This man is sick and that is probally why he is the friend of a Fezatte.
Thanks for the entertainment Dave.
I will recomend to everyone!
Val Fezatte - Lansing, Michigan /
Well, a friend of a Feazatte! That is one of the many accolades that have been bestowed upon me that I am genuinely proud of. I also look forward to the days of no buttons. Then peace will finally lay its' head on my shoulder and I will be free .... - David
ha ha! you'll never make me quit! i can use the "back" button on my browser!!!! .......i can push the buttons again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and.................

Bit of a nutter that bloke .... - David
a very cool page!!! I am now in denial of the fact that
I was sick enough to actually search the whole black
page to find one more button to push. Thanks for enlightening
me on just how bored I become from time to time.
David G. Violett - Grand Forks ND /
Well David, you know what they say ... boredom breeds buttons and buttons breed .... or something like that - David

Victoria - Sweden /
Right on! - David
Victoria wrote again .... YEEAH, I found it. At last, I was over the dark side. Okay, and know I don't have to do this anymore. See you in other places.
Victoria ... well done now get back onto Telegraph Road! - David
a light diversion
Wayne Sharon - Marshall, VA /
A light diversion?? A light diversion is catching a glimpse of a pretty girl crossing the street, or a game of solitaire during work! - David
Pretty cool idea. The only thing I would change is the name of the next page linked to the hidden button right before the end. I couldn't find the button so I went up to the URL and changed the number in the address to the next in the series. That got me to the last page. If you made that number something else, people would really have to search the previous page for that hidden button.
Brooks Harper - Hermitage, TN / The Binary Brooks

all that black space. Maybe free cyber-sex or something.

Well, don't look at me .... - David
Hey! Had a great time!
khaden - Wetumpka, AL /
Hey! That's what we're here for! - David
I HAD to get to the end - IMHO, it is a very diluted/unadventuresome sort of person who could just quit without knowing how it all turned out. To find your black page button, I went straight to the bottom of the page and began sweeping the page w/my mouse, watching for a URL to appear at the bottom of the browser - it didn't take but a few seconds. I don't consider that cheating, not like looking at the doc source code like some unsavory types... Yow, that sounded like moral superiority...like there's a code of conduct for finding the Big Green Button or something... :-)
Shelly - Chattanooga, TN (no email)
I don't think you're a bad person Shelley. btw, what's this 'IMHO' thing? I keep seeing it and I feel as if everyone else knows but me. Someone enlighten me please?! (PS. Don't worry ... thanks to Rizzn for the enlightenment!)- David
You have brightened my day! It has been fun. Oh well, back to work.
John Leonard - Tucker, GA /
What? You were pushing buttons whilst at work? I do hope that your employers don't read this! - David
I'm not real sure how I feel, you know sortta like my life's not complete anymore something's missing or something... Are there going to be any meetings to attend or something, I don't think I can quit all by myself... I think i'm gonna have to do it just one more time... I'll be back later .... gotta go find that damn green button..............!!!

Just curious .... some people with a sense of humour write all sorts of stuff. Other people either don't write anything or ask me why - David
I feel cheated, liedto, made a fool of. there was no button on the last dark page. I clicked and clicked but no you took control of my psyche and tore it to shreds. thanks alot!

... than what? - David
Emboldened, as if I've stepped into the beginning of a new, freer life. I think it's even cured my cold. Incidentally, *I* found the hidden button just by pressing Tab (after searching vainly with the mouse). Jumped right to it!
Robert - Roswell GA /
Cured your cold? Please don't tell anyone as they'll all be coming to be with their illnesses and diseases - David
Can you say... Half a bubble out of plumb.

Funny, sorta -- but do you maybe have too much time on your hands? Perhaps I do for even writing this!
Gene Kelly - Monroe, GA /
No, I can't say those things .... someone just tied my hands and gagged me .... otherwise, yes I'd be able to - David
I'll tell you, it was an unraveling experience, I must tell my other addict friends.
you have really got something here, possibly an alternative to beer drinking. you have just
reinforced my awareness that I have nothing better to do with my time. Thank You.
jesse cregar - atlanta ga /
An alternative to beer drinking, eh? Well I suppose you wouldn't wake up the next moring with a mouth like a camel's armpit after fifteen years in the desert - David
Better than the big red dot!
Matt Stancliff - Smyrna, Ga / Matt's Place
NO? Not the Big Red Dot?!!! - David
I had to cheat. I'm so ashamed. I found the next page by looking at the source. '=

Quentin - Atlanta GA /
Quentin, you will no doubt burn in hell for your heinous crime - David
Well, after reading those comments, I felt like I needed to offer something
more of substance. I want you to know that to me, pushing that bgb was very
theraputic. I'm not even joking.. It lacked the substance of most web pages
and was the cyber-equivilent of breathing deeply and murmuring "ahm.. ahm.. ahm
.. ahm.."etc, etc ad nausium. Also, the comments (i'm sure it was meant to be this way) is a good pick-me-up for the depressed.. and full o'substance... well, maybe humor, if nothing else.
One final thing... ahh, very clever changing up the numbers at the end.. one would
suspect, all they have to do is put in 31 or whatever, but if they do that, they lose
out on .. o wait, why do you have a 76, and a 31... doh!
Rizzn Do'Urden - Menzoberranzan, House Do'Urden, Underdark / Rizzn's Ranch
Yeah, okay, so I forgot to delete the 31! It's all changed now ... - David

you took it away from me! Bastard!
Matthew Franklin - Santa Ana, CA /
Yup! That's just the kind of guy I am - David
That's the coolest thing in the entire world. Now I will change my home page so that it is composed of nothing but hundreds of teeny tiny buttons linking to the big green series of buttons.

This is a cool page! Thanks for a good laugh. :)
Julia Faulkner - Newnan, GA / Julia's Place
You're welcome Julia. (The majority of today's comments seem to be coming from the Atlanta area. Are y'all having a BGB Conference or something?) - David
I feel somehow cheapened and yet at the same time strangely satisfied by the whole experience. It's like I became the button, and then the button became me. I'd do it again, for sure.
Jeff Brush - Gaithersburg, MD /
You'd do what again? Become the button, or press them again? - David
O.k. I admit it. I'm insanely compulsive and obsessive when it comes to buttons...
just gotta click those buttons. I don't have any on any of my pages. I just like to push
other people's buttons. No pun intended. Great page!
Sharon Crowder - Lacey's Spring, Al / Sharons' Page
Well, just keep on pushing Sharon - David
Silly, but it made me smile!
Bonnie Lee - B'ham/AL/USA /
And that's the main thing, right? - David
It was funny...not addictive feeling at all..I expected a bigger reward for pressing the quit button..like a cool pic of Brad Pitt or something...just how many green buttons are there anyway...???
Brittany Shain - Alameda, California /
Ah, but what you expect you usually don't get! And regarding the number of BGB's, that's for me to know and you to find out! - David
i enjoyed it very much, thank you.
alice main - cincinnati, ohio /
You're welcome ... I'm just glad that I could provide such a valuable public service - David
Great! It was insaninty heaven!
How do you feel now that 2002 people have experienced your Big Green Buttons?
P.S. I do not have a website but will be working on one soon. :)
How do I feel? You're the first person who's ever asked me! I feel exhausted! The BGB's started out as a private joke between myself and my friend Duncan just a few weeks ago, then just spiralled into worldwide proportions overnight. Sure, it's great to get so much response, but it does take up a heck of a lot of my precious free time! Let me know when you Geocities site is up and running .... c-ya - David
I know what a Republican feels like now!

You don't really have any problems, do you?! - David
Heart Rate increase, Carple tendon syndrome flare up,
Puckered sensation similar to eating small pinches of spunge rubber from the seat of my office chair, compulsive tendancy to open and close the refrigerator door, hopeless feeling causing me to gaze into outer space.

Extra who?! - David
After a hard day of Tech Support for the internet, I'm glad I can press SOMETHING!!
Matthew Waldron - Mableton, Georgia /
Hey Matthew, fret not young man, the answer is here .... you need not wait till after you've finished your hard day's work to press something ... don't forget that your nose or your navel are always at hand, ready to be pushed for instant gratification and relief - David
Even more anal-retentive than usual.
Alexandra Mitchell - Atlanta, GA /
Are you proud of that, or just stating a fact? - David
Fine. In other words, I will sleep well tonight.
J.Meade - Melville,NY /
Are you saying that the BGB's bored you?! I'm hurt! - David
It's all better now :)
I can get back to work.

What was wrong in the first place Heather? - David
That was fun!
Chris Spirito - Norwood / MA / Chris' Cave
WooHoo!! - David
Complete, yet strangely empty, like I had simply whittled away 15 minutes

simply bombed out early. I'm upset!

INGENIUS! BRILLIANT! AMAZING! AWE-INSPIRING! STUPENDOUS! You are my idol. Thank you.
This is the reason why America's the greatest country in the world! Actually, judging from the funny way you spell, I realise (sic) that you're British. This is the reason why England
is the greatest country in the world! UK #1, US #2
F_ _ _ John Major! My vote's for the Big Green Button Man.
Eddy B - San Jose/CA / Eddy's Place
Whaddya mean, funny way I spell? It's you guys who spell funny, but anyway it would seem that you change your mind more often than .... um .... a thing that changes a lot, so you'd be no good for my political spokesman. Maybe the fingers that loiter over the nuclear buttons will soon be loitering over Big Green Buttons ..... - David
shayna - Forest Grove, OR /
Could you be more specific Shanya? - David
I have to admit. i cheated too, i used the source code to find the last button.
but hey, it was better than studying anatomy for med school
Kim Blumberg - Phila/PA/USA /
My thoughts entirely! Good luck at Med School Kim! - David
That was indeed a fun game. I think I will tell all my friends about it. That's a little sad, but hey! it sure beats the Big Red Button that Doesn't Do Anything...
Tina Fraction - Evanston/IL/USA /
Yes I have some competition now! There's a new Button page out there now ... looking spookily somewhat familiar .... check it out! - David
The earth moved.
Of course there's an electrical storm in the area, which would explain that.
D. Winfrey - Louisville, KY /
Yeah, I think I felt that one too - David
I feel as if I've wasted alot of time! But it was kinda fun....
Lee Harris - Glencoe,AL /
You have wasted a lot of time! - David
Exhausted! Allmost as useless as the circlepage you'll find at my site.
Olle Viksten - SWEDEN / Olle's Place
Well, there's nothing wrong with a bit of free advertising! - David
I am utterly disappointed that there's no press32.html for the really adventurous souls
like me. )
Hans Juergen Mennecke - Germany /
Well Hans, I'm sorry that you feel that way, but there's not much I can do about it ... you see, if I create one more then poor desperate button seeking souls like yourself will plague me for another, then another, and another, and so on. It's a 'no can do' situation I'm afraid - David
Just how old ARE you? Were you dropped on your head as a child? How long did it take you to make all those stupid green button thingys? Why did you hide that other button? Do you know how long it took me to find that? Do you have any IDEA how FRUSTRATING that is? So what's your sign?

Hold on to that sanity John ... you'll need it really badly one day - David
Damn, I hate rainy Friday nights.
Kevin Heath - Howell, NJ /
Well, that's what you get for living in Jersey I guess! You should try living here in England ... you'd hate every night! - David
Tempted .. but I'm not going back to press the other button.
Pam - Nashville, TN / Pam's Place
I bet you did, didn't you Pam?! - David
Pam then wrote again ... OK so I went back and pushed the button just to see what was there. But I must admit I also cheated and looked at the source code to locate the final button. Hmm does this mean I'm addicted ??
Quite possibly - David
When you spend 45 hours a week working with numberds, being organized, and
acting logically, this is a breath of fresh air. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
It's been a long time since I laughed this hard.
Bonnie G. Nukolczak - Baltimore /
I'm glad you had a good giggle Bonnie, but just out of curiosity, what's a "numberd"?! - David
Bonnie wrote back again .... I was so intrigued after reading others' comments, I had to go back. I had to find out if the quit button really worked. I need to try all the different combinations. I need to find out if there's more. I need more. Please, more. PLEASE, MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Easy girl! Simmer down, you'll do yourself an injury! - David

Why thankyou .... - David
I'd like to feel that I have fulfilled my purpose in life...but *sigh* I (like
so many others before me) have also cheated...ah, the wonder of text-based
browsing! No searching necessary on the black page, you see...the link just
magically appears at the bottom of the screen. Score one for Lynx...:)
Heather - Milwaukee, Wisconsin /
Well you see Heather, some people just aren't as lucky as you! - David
Heather also emailed me with ... I have checked out your competition as you recommended and found it extremely pathetic compared to your personal button-genius. It is full
of empty threats of what will happen when you press the button as
opposed to revealing the true nature of the human psyche by exposing
each and every button pusher as addicted... Be proud that people have
attempted to mimic your greatness and yet have failed to do so
Heather, if you want a job in PR it's yours! - David

In that case check out this page Stephanie - David
Is that good or bad? - David
WOW! What a novelly useless idea! I like it. Even though
I quit on the second page (does that mean I'm nuts or something?)
but now I might, will, no must go back and take in the entire
experience. I'll check back again and see if you've come up wth
more uselessness. See you later.
Andrew Mitchell - Banning CA /
See me later? Not unless I see you first! - David
This was really FUN! Glad to have found this home page. You are very smart to
know how to do this!

It all starts that way you know ... just one more, then it all gets outta hand! (Whilst we're on the subject of Pittsburgh, my good Pittsburgh friends Randy & Linda Lintelman have just celebrated the birth of their first son Andrew! Way to go guys!) - David
I laughed my ass off. Thanks. That's the funniest thing I've seen on the web.

Keep shaking! - David
I feel like I'm empty inside..
Bjorn Allvin - Vasteras, SWEDEN /
That's probably because, if you remember, your guts fell out yesterday teatime - David
At first I was exhausted, then after repeatedly
pressing the button I felt exhilirated, You
know, that kind of feeling you get after
just completing the rino race at the African
Safari Hut(TM). That warm slimly feeling all
over my mouse hand was almost too great a reward.
But, I must say, I'd do it again, given the chance.
David A. Irwin - Oviedo, Fl USA /
To be perfectly honest with you, I'm not all that familiar with the warm slimy mouse hand feeling .... maybe I'm doing it wrong? - David
My clicking finger is still twitching!! I neeeeed more buttons! must click!

You have the best Big Green Buttons that
I have ever pushed. They are shmoo-rific even.
stokes - La Crosse WI /
Simple yet effective, that's what I like! - David
Great Plot! You really can feel for the
charactors! The storyline has so many
twists and turns it will keep you guessing
till the end. I see Michelle Pfeiffer
and Tom Cruise playing the green and red
buttons respectively. The breathtaking
climactic scene will be when they finally
find each other in the black void at the
end. It will be the smash hit of 97!!
(By the way I'm gonna steal the idea and
write a blockbuster script around it.
Don't bother sueing me, I'll deny ever
having been here) Now visit my page and

It's really changed my life. Before, life was
drab and empty, the birds didn't sing,the
grass didn't grow,everything seemed to be in
black and white. But now I've been given a
new lease on life. Everything is green and white.
What a difference! I just don't know how to thank

Jurgen Brainsplog - Baghdad, Iraq /
Certainly would change my life ... sounds like a good trade! - David
