Found this game over at somethingawful, which tracks the stock markets, currency exchanges, and other markets in real time, and includes them in a free game. You have to predict whether the stock being tracked will go up or down in the next 30 seconds after you click, and if you're right, you can earn money or prizes. The prizes right now are iPod shuffles and Macbooks.

All seems pretty ligit, and theres no email activation.

Useless game in which we guess the rate of the decline of our society, as we sit back and do nothing to save it? Awesome.

Given that the worth of stocks is based entirely on people's confidence in them, couldn't we effectively destroy several companies like this?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

You would have to be investing actual money for that to happen. Where just betting on theoutcome of the next 30 seconds.

You could go out and buy one. Which would help the economy.

You, my friend, have just become a chartist.

Later you will notice that this is too fast for real life, and when you see a fall or rise, they actually means nothing in real life, they like 0.0000001 percent change in the value of the stock.

Well even if i watch the news and hear that the dollar getting weaker while the euro get stronger and run to my computer to play this, i will realise that 30 second is too little time and i will still found a lot of "rise" and peaks while the overall value is falling like a penny thrown out of Eiffel.

TL.DR.: Even if you are a stock-market-guru, you still have 50-50 chance.
