  1. That Blast Billiards is hard, cleared level 2 and then kaboom on the last ball of level 3

  2. Lol why not share? It was generic advice…I think!

    • Hi Everton, I’m sure I’ve seen one of these before and it had a big disclaimer saying not to share, things may of changed though.

  3. it all came up in an email conversation I was having and I wasn’t told not to share any of the conversation. There are no performance metrics, which is the stuff you aren’t allowed to share and similar info has been posted on the google blog before – it was just nice that they tailored public information just for little old me!

    • Found it, this is how the email I saw ended:

      The funny thing was the recommendations sent didn’t actually improve anything 🙂

  4. Wow the biggest fall off since 1920s! I liked the graphic image, it is just like playing “jenga” with the housing market 🙁
