An online version of sending a message in a bottle. Pass the time with writing and/or retreiving messages from anonymous senders.

http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j140/amber-01/Icons/Smilies/smilies_mail.gif Play (http://www.oceangram.com/)

Note when you receive a message, the lighthouse will cast a yellow beam of light onto the water. You may need to wait a while for a message.

I found this game a long while ago. By the way amber, do you go on I-Am-Bored.com?

A lot of the stuff you send is from there.

No I don't, but thanks for the link. I didn't realize that they had all this stuff. I remember going on there to watch a video, but their web interface is a huge deterrent for me.

Humm, a bit http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j140/amber-01/Icons/Smilies/Emotion/0offtopic.gif here :P but http://snipurl.com/interesting-websites is also a good site for interesting stuff. It doesn't have games though.

This game is relaxing. Once I got a message saying 'If you are reading this, you are probably spending as much time on the internet as I do.'

How do you get messages? the lighthouse lights up but I don't know what to click to read the message

amber

That's funny. Sometimes you get messages from admin saying that the bottle's leaky and the message has been lost due to the water, please discard.

This would be one of those games, where you wonder why nobody have thought of making something like this before :P It's great :D

Elni, chances of you getting any of your sent bottles back with replies are less than being struck by lightning...twice :P In other words, consider how many people would be using this website and that it sends out the bottles to random people :)

Key_padj, that is very true unfortunately :(

And daklon, that's a very good one, very much in the spirit of it all :D

it takes ages to get a message!

Some just keep the window minimized and check every so often.

I found something interesting, when you get a message from admin about the leaky bottle (i.e. message lost in the water, please discard bottle) just click on send, and you will be able to read the original message. I did it once and that's what happened for me.

I think I got 4 leaky bottles in a row. I only stumbled upon this think on the 4th one. I don't know if the leaky bottle thing is a way to censor the messages for them and the message re-appearing might be a glitch.

08-03-2006, 16:49:22
the chain letter is:"Type in your age and then click send" ...lol

amber
08-03-2006, 16:55:25
ohh that's a good idea & you should send a couple (copy & paste) just in case people discard them by mistake.

It would be nice to know the ages & have it come back to you. I would like to see this site also become really popular, like an really mini internet phenonmenon...that'd be cute!

i just got this message: Hi:-)I dunno who's going to find this but I wanted to say, "Hello!" Strange introducing yourself to someone you don't know, but I'm a 28 year old American. I am newly married. I live in Elizabethtown, PA which is somewhere between Harrisburg and Lancaster. In the middle of nowhere. I have a boy's first name but am a girl. I am very pretty but my mother brought my nose. I married my husband because his mother got me my job when I didn't really qualify for anything. I am hateful towards anyone I can be. I don't love my husband. I am ashamed.

Fun but sometimes I get impatient waiting for the next bottle.
I started an 'Add the next line" chain letter. You just type in a first line about 'anything' and the next person adds on his line and so on, and so on. Actually, it's a party game that can be a lot of fun if people are creative enough.

i got this

After the fight, I went home and cried. I'm nt the crying type, really, prefering to mourn my losses quietly and to myself. It would turn out to be one of the few times I would cry for years to come and I still don't know whether the tears were spent with wisdom or not. What I do know is that things reached a boiling point for reason I wont claim to understand. We were

Today my daughter started her last year at high school. How fast time flies! Fortunately mys son is still little (13) so I have him near to me a little bit longer.

Good luck to my children, to me and all the children in the world. May God be with you. Or the Force, if you preferably think so.
