“Game over, man” – Tetris, Ooda Loops, the End of Civ and *that* scene from #Aliens

Ever played Tetris? You have to get the blocks rotated so they fall in a way that creates lines of squares that then disappear.

Well, in the clip I found the guy (and we can be pretty sure it is a guy) gets to the end.

But mere mortals like me get tired, or know that we want to move a block to a certain place, but over-rotate, or run out of time. As the game progresses, the blocks fall faster, and the consequences of any foul-up before become harder to overcome. Sound familiar?

Just because you theoretically know what you are supposed to do, doesn’t mean you will be able to…

Kinda links into speed of your “OODA Loops.”

What scene? That scene…
