I suddenly feel at home in the world. after I fininsh and breathed
a sigh of relief, I noticed the counter at the bottom of the screen. over
490,000 people!!! The BGBs unite us as a species.

nicole, i'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you but i really don't think that your problems stem from the BGB. i think that deep down within your psyche there is a little inherant madness trying to escape. i think that maybe the BGB just sparked it. all you need to do nicole is to lie down with an ice pack on your belly and recite nursery rhymes. - david
CHEER!!!! I finally found it! My fiance came home from work
about 5 minutes ago and found me struggling in the blackness.. all he did was
roll his eyes and start laughing! This has almost been the best thing to
happen to me in the last week, finding out that we're buying a house being the
best thing! :)
Perfect Breakfast: Eggs, real homefries, toast and the wonderful news that I wouldn't have to go in to work!

To press or not to press? That is the question. And the answer is YES!
From my epiphany, I now worship the father, son and holy button. Amen.

Well I didn't exactly find the ending to the original BGB, so I left
it alone for a while. This was the time when the BGB2 was out already. I just
got back into this BGB thingie, the 14th of March, 1999 (five days from my
birthday, woohoo) by the way. I didn't expect any sort of ending, but hey what
do yah know here I am, so if I can do it so can you. Hey maybe that's the
thing, the first one sets you up for a continuous loop and discouragement, then the next one gives you some closure and sense of accomplishment? Well a friend of mine once told me that all closure means is "Less F-edupness" and, hey wait a minute if I never saw the ending to the first BGB, how do I know there is none? AHA! Back to the original BGB for me! Hahahahahaha...I don't mind too much really this is one of the more interesting sites, one of the best. A must visit for those who love a challenge.

NONE OF THE ABOVE.... I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT WHILE IN DOING THIS I HAVE
COMPLETELY SHUT OUT THE WORLD AND LET THE BIG GREEN BUTTON TAKE OVER MY MIND

anon - i think that i can see a tree through the bars
what's with all this shouting? stop it will you?! - david
David, The Big Green Button was really fun. However, what I admire even more than the creation of this BGB, is the effort you put into reacting on the comments you get. You really take your time to find an appropriate answer.
Thank you for a good time and for the knowledge that there are some people in
Internet-land who take the time to follow-up their internet-actions, even when
it's just for fun. Especially when it's just for fun.
Perfect Breakfast: a late dinner

David, in response to your wondering about whether to be honored by the kudos of TEUNC or slip away so we can't do something to you. . . . I'll warn you that, one of our members, Aliean, has been unable to beat BGB2. Now, she plans to seduce you, sleep with you, and trick you into giving her the secret. Be wary of all females. Particulary if they have Rabbit Ears.
Perfect Breakfast: Human Flesh and Eggs
Kazul - Empire of Hare / Kazul's Lair
kazul, i'm always wary of women with rabbit ears - david
The web has it's cookies (or buttons) to give out which is a good thing since it's been a long, long, time since that summer in Texas when I started pushing that Big Green Buttons. there were maybe a couple million of us out there on the INTERNET all pushing and prodding, racing frantically. there were maybe only six of us all together running around in our barefeet and birthday suits and I remember Molly. but then everybody just stopped and went back to whatever they were doing just as if nothing had ever happened while I remember Molly looked at me and ran in because I guess really I was the only one there
pushing the buttons
Perfect Breakfast: oatmeal w/fresh raspberries and orange juice
Terry - The Lone Star State
huh? and y'all thought I was weird! - david
[A woman in red leather with a whip approaches David] TELL ME HOW
TO SOLVE BGB2!!!! TELL ME!!! [Aliean decides to try a more subtle tactic, and reverts to seduction mode] David, darling, won't you *please* tell the secret? For me? I promise I won't tell anyone. I really won't. And if you don't like the rabbit ears, I'll take them off. . . Tell me, PLEASE? [flutters eyelashes] Be a good boy, won't you? You've been very naughty, making the solution so hard to find. Now, please tell me, or do I have to punish you? (Should I use the whip? [wicked grin]) C'mon, David, tell me the secret. I won't tell. I'll do whatever you want, just tell me how to solve it. . . . . . (Note: While Aliean is saying all this, she: unbuttons several buttons, cooes, runs her fingers up things, and several more unpublishable things. David: looks perplexed, scared.)
Perfect Breakfast: Strawberries. With lots of sugar. And whipped cream. Cream is important.
Aliean Morani - Empire of Hare /
YIKES! aliean, i wish i could help you, i truly do! but you seem like the kind of girl who likes to be teased ... so i won't tell you ... maybe that's a bad choice ... maybe i'm missing out on a whole bunch of interesting 'punishments' ... but i'm not big on pain. so, hopefully i can soothe you and your rabbit ears by giving you this BGB Comment Award (still, if you happen to be in my neighbourhood .....!) - david
While I am experienced in the ways of the BGB, your e-mail about the
BGB3 made me return. Fool, I should have known better. I told myself I would be
able to stop this time. After all, I already knew the answers. Didn't I? But
no, the seductive lure of the green button drew me in again. What will I tell
my boyfriend when I arrive late and exahsted from to much button pushing? I had
told him that I was studying in the computer lab - but he'll see the truth in
my eyes!! This could ruin my relationship. Unless, well, maybe, we could push
the button together...
Perfect Midnight Munchie: Let's see... right now I'm having french onion sun-chips and dry grape ginger-ale ... study food!
Nantosvelta - CT /
now that's love! happy couple pressing green buttons in unison and harmony. however, may i recommend that when you try BGB3 that you do it separately ... i will not be held responsible for any relationship breakdown caused by stress! - david
I came. I pushed. I suceeded. I have done something in my life.
Perfect Breakfast: you david

And so it came to pass that one dedicated BGB addict reawakened her passion for green and said to the world, we must see Green again! And so she sent forth, with Green in her mind, asking those she came across if they had seen a BGB.
And in their ignorance they asked what was a BGB? and so she showed them the way to the truth, the Green. And those of little faith asked, but where is the end? How can such a thing end? But she just shook her head and said, ye must seek for yourself.
Some without vocabularly exclaimed that it was interesting, while others who had seen the Green dismayed over the quit button. When the black page of DOOM rose before them, they coward in the darkness of it all and searched for the Green. They clung to she who had brought the Green and demanded to know where their sacred BGB had gone.
She remained silent, for while she had forgotten the exact location of the BGB, she knew that it was there. And she knew, unlike them, that this was a page that must be fought alone.
When the BGB survivors struggled to another round of the BGB, seeking the Green that had been their sanctuary for so long, she left them to seek out others of little faith, to set the Green in their hearts. And those she passed may have thought her crazy, and others simply disregarded her pleas to come to the Green. And so she concluded that the Green was only those for strong of heart and weak of mind.
Afterall, who would sit clicking a green button on the screen for THAT long??
And now, my gift of uselessness to you.. the utter delinquincy of the real-time conversations provided through the method of AohelL's instant messaging system while trying to cojole others through the BGB games:
This is between an online friend (that I letter met) from Las Vegas, he is not a very enthusiastic fellow:
OpalDreams: Ever played BGB?
OpalDreams: yeah!! BGB, Big Green BUTTON game
AnEssence: eh.. no
OpalDreams: HERE it's fun <hops around> http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/5945/bgb-main_new.html
AnEssence: how interesting
OpalDreams: You're less excited over this then anyone else :)
AnEssence: that would be me.
OpalDreams: Letme guess.. you don't like green?
This is part of the conversation between me and my best-friend's fiancee:
PaulH 1977: Aye.. And I did all 3 and they drove me nuts.. :P
PaulH 1977: And I now have a fear of green buttons.. :(
PaulH 1977: And it's all YOUR fault..
OpalDreams: Thank you :)
PaulH 1977: YOU made me do it..
OpalDreams: No I didn't, there's a QUIT button in the first game!! :)
PaulH 1977: YOU subjected me to hours of torturous clicking..
Unfortunately, this friend of mine got through the first game all too quickly:
OpalDreams: EEE ready for bgb? :)
Iolani falchion: uhhhh
Iolani falchion: can I say no?
OpalDreams: Nope :)
OpalDreams: You must prepare yourself... for the GREEN
Iolani falchion: *smirk* SEND IT AT ME! I CAN HANDLE IT!
Iolani falchion: ok and?
Iolani falchion: *blink*
Iolani falchion: is there a point to this really? ;)
OpalDreams: Yeah :) Have faith ^^
Iolani falchion: hehe I like it when the quit button goes poof
Iolani falchion: well what do you know there was a big green button in that terrible black page after all *snicker*
you have successfully negotiated the ominous blackness
that encompassed the big green button
OpalDreams: <snickers I love that!!
Iolani falchion: is htis supposed to be hard ;-)
OpalDreams: WHOO you did it quick!!
OpalDreams: Now go do bgb2, HEY it took some poor people like 3 hours to figure out that black page
Iolani falchion: I know
Iolani falchion: just givin ya a hard time
My best friend, as you may recognize from her sn before, is a spaz just like me:
JadeTear: i can't remember wher it is!!!
JadeTear: i found it
OpalDreams: EEE!! Gratz!!
JadeTear: he tricked me
OpalDreams: *goes back to the sanctuary of the BGB*
JadeTear: <sniff i can't find it
JadeTear: Mudders on Mud... <big grrr grr.. concentration face.. Mudders on the BGB <Frantic button clicking grrrr...concentration... grrrr... *faint*
JadeTear: I FOUND IT!!
JadeTear: i think..
OpalDreams: Find it? :)
JadeTear: <---feels good cause she found it
And my boyfriend was the least thrilled out of everyone, but this is still rather cute:
Himitsu Na Will: This is how I've been replaced...?
(Is it bad that I was tempted to say, 'YES'?)
Though, by far, the most entertaining person to moniter going through the BGB was my friend from Isreal (who is at this moment trying squeeze more 'useless' pages out of me)
Drawmk1: What's bgb? :P
OpalDreams: big green button :)
Drawmk1: Is there an end for it? :P
OpalDreams: Yes ;)
Drawmk1: Ah! no quit button!
...during the 'black screen'
Drawmk1: Ah! where is the button in the black screen?!
Drawmk1: where is it?! where?!
OpalDreams: I don't remember, it's been 3 years
Drawmk1: Heh, I can't find it
Drawmk1: I found it, and it tells me 'That's not it'
Drawmk1: I found a button in there, I clicked on it and it says nope that's not it, go back and search again
Drawmk1: oh my!
Drawmk1: there are several buttons there!
Drawmk1: i found it! :)
Drawmk1: aaahh! I got another green button, clicked on it and it said that it's not that!
Drawmk1: i give up hehe
OpalDreams: Nooo there's an answer really there is! :-)
Drawmk1: but this screen is too damn big lol
Drawmk1: OH MY GOD!
OpalDreams: LOL what??
Drawmk1: HUNDRENDS OF BUTTONS
Drawmk1: He was probably very bored when he created this, right? :P
OpalDreams: It's on his FAQ :-)
Drawmk1: This is addictive :P
OpalDreams: Yes it is :-)
Drawmk1: Don't forget that 10,000 word dissertation
that has to be in tomorrow at 9:00am
Drawmk1: I solved bgb2!
OpalDreams: WHEE!! Gratz!!!
Drawmk1: HOW MANY LEVELS ARE THERE IN 3?! :P
OpalDreams: 15 I think..
Drawmk1: Did you ever find the correct route? :P
OpalDreams: Yeah :)
Drawmk1: I'll solve that later hehe I'll write it on a paper heheh
OpalDreams: LOL!! alrights :)
Drawmk1: ah! i give up! i tried hundrends of combinations heheh
Drawmk1: And I'm still at choice one at level 4
Thank you again for all the fun :) I had 2 hours of sheer delight sharing BGB with the world
