Fun - test your eyeballing skills, post score

http://woodgears.ca/eyeball/

Post your average 50+ score (lower the better)

Not so great - 4.09

3.77 average but I got 8.8 on the middle of the triangle test.

Mind you, this was my second go and I'm not telling you what my first one was

5.6 best of three tries which explains my strange attraction to precision measuring instruments!

I nailed one! Otherwise I'll be hitting that semi instead of missing it...

Your inaccuracy by category:
Parallelogram 10.0 4.1 5.7
Midpoint 2.2 1.4 3.2
Bisect angle 0.9 4.2 4.5
Triangle center 12.2 7.9 3.0
Circle center 2.2 6.7 0.0
Right angle 3.6 3.5 5.3
Convergence 8.1 2.8 4.2
Average error: 4.56 (lower is better)

But I don't turn 50 for two more months.

4.13... and I'm tired and not wearing my glasses..... and I completely zoned out during the first one and got 26 which threw off my average. I'll try again in the morning when I'm fresher.
