    Anyone else get a shock, or jolt to their body when you realize you made an atrocious blunder the instant after making a move? Or am I just odd?

    I get a shiver.

    People often get a physical response to shock.

    I find it difficult to believe that I still get any sort of physical reaction when I blunder. You'd think that when you blunder as much as I do that it would no longer be surprising at all!

    I used to get a red face as a kid. Now I get a good laugh 🙂. Applies only to games of course.

    I get an adrenaline rush once I realize I've blundered. I'm guessing that's why I haven't improved as a player... I'm sub-conciously a gd adrenaline junky.

    Go skydiving before every single move and you will jump 300 rating points. Bank on it.

    I was getting shocked so much I was having a seizure in this game. I still won but I had a lot of blunders. Wasn't quite blitz but you only get 2 mins for each move.

    So that's what, g/120?

    No, each move has a 120 second time limit.
