    For other judges:

    We had an discussion earlier today, if it was against the rules to manipulate the joystick while on toilet?
    We know if another person interacted with the game the score would not count. But what if it was a piece of tape, or a stick, dragging or pushing against the joystick? And Kim added it himself?

    The reason why this was brought up was that he needs to take bathroom brakes, and this might help him not burn as many lives as if the ship was stationary..

    Your thoughts please.

    that seems like a borderline thing to do, definitely not a best-practice.
    If a score using that came into the TGSAP submissions I would abstain from voting, then probably reject once stronger historical evidence or opinions came along.

    Robotron has a cheat where you can trap a brain on the right side, put a jacket over the fire stick to hold it down and then get away with a break.
    Definitely wouldn't be acceptable in the modern day score challenges, and I even noted it as illegal in some of the new tracks.

    RTM REPLY - unfortunately, as sordid as the topic is (playing while in the bathroom), there seems to have been an already-approved precedent on the subject matter. I recall an anecdote, possibly from Walter's 1st TG Book of Records in which he recounts Billy Mitchell playing "Centipede" and transitioning to the bathroom, and there was a blurb about someone trying to enter and Billy shouting that he was playing "Centipede" and the person became embarrassed...something like that.

    If someone has that first book read it and post the actual verbiage. In any event, such was accepted back then and as no counter-policy has appeared on the forum then I have to imagine that a player transitioning to the bathroom while still playing is perfectly acceptable even today. Not the picture of cleanliness, but acceptable.

    9 reasons why you should play video games while on the toilet.

    5. You can use it as a conversation starter

    If the news has been relatively lame or the weather boring, this topic is something that will surely get some smiles, or weird looks, out of people. It immediately relaxes the formal, boring, “hi, how are you, where are you from” small talk, and puts things in a more fun, expressive, and less judgmental atmosphere. If you’re willing to talk about your bathroom habits freely, then others will feel safe being more vulnerable along with you, which makes people much more interesting and creates a better environment for everyone to enjoy.

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.
