"QWOP"

A little bit of a different post today, I felt inclined to review the oh so popular track game "QWOP". QWOP is a game where the objective is to have the athlete walk 100 meters. The athlete is supposedly a nations only hope in the olympic games. You have complete control of his body through the keys q,w,o and p (thus explaining the title). The game is very difficult and at the same time very addicting. I can describe it as trying to teach a new born how to walk. My record is 46 meters, how any one can get farther than that astounds me. A technique I found that works well is by pressing the o and w keys together first, then pressing the q and p keys together second, and repeat that process to take steps. It takes practice and patience. Another technique to use is the "lunge/ tea bag the ground technique"in which you bring your foot forward and press many different buttons to try and move forward. QWOP is a fun game, but you have to make an effort not to get too attached to it or too frustrated by it.
Question: What is your QWOP high score?
