When and why I decided to do this:
5 days ago Flashpantss told me in ts chat that he wanted to go for a billion in a day on Tuesday so I was like "hey I'll do it with you lolol". He was like "really?" I said "yeah man".
I went to the store and bought gatorade, waters, 2 liter bottle of coke (for when I get sleepy), muffins, more bread, banana, pizza, crackers. I actually got on schedule so I went to bed at 3 pm and woke up at 12:20 AM eastern time. I decided I wanted to whore EHHS. I did some testing as to deciding this was the least intensive song with the greatest payout that I thought I could play all day until I hit bill. I decided to play the entire song rather than auto fail at 758 because that second or two of pause gives me a chance to actually stretch my arms and move my hands. Besides, playing through the entire song makes the time go by faster. I had lolo in case I needed to make a push and Yoshi's Cookie for when I have trouble and need a break. I had my itunes set up that I could play at any time. I had a 3 hour (part 1) video of super mario 64 longplay that I ended up watching the entirety of. And I had Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone book on tape also on youtube ready to play at anytime. I played only 10 minutes of it actually.
How I felt while playing:
My mindset was always focused on an hour at a time. Play until the top of the hour so I can take a few minute break to stretch and make sure I'm ok. The first 3 hours or so I pa'd EHHS. The next 3 I pa'd most of EHHS. The next 4 I mashed half pa'd half. The first 11 hours were all about fighting off boredom. I had no pains at all. I started to get a little sluggish but never any pain. The people in VC were quite helpful to keep me motivated and going. By the time I hit the halfway mark (on pace for 1.42 billion) in time I hit bad pain in my left hand. In my wrist and up through the back of my hand. It was pretty bad. I was at 700 million or so which was when I predicted 1 billion would feel the furthest away. (Cause I'm almost there but not really. 300 million more takes 6-7 hours). I had to step down to Yoshi's Cookies for a good hour and a half until the end of hour 13 and the beginning of 14. I either got used to the pains in my hand or they subsided a littttle bit and I straight up completely mashed the rest of the time in EHHS until I hit 1 billion at 7:27 pm eastern time.
1 Bill and Beyond:
At this point I felt ok to quad mash but I couldn't really move my fingers independently without sharp pain. So I'm like GIMMIE VROFL SO I CAN WHORE HARD. But I didn't get it for an hour or two and I gave up seeing that 1.5b was officially out of reach. It would have been interesting to see how close I would have gotten. I still had 5 hours 30 minutes left so it was definitely possible if I pushed myself to get there using VROFL. I would have tried. Instead I played Yoshi's Cookie, EHHS, Lolo a couple times before I had VROFL and then decided I was done. So I winded down and went to bed at about 9:30 Eastern time.
How my hands are now:
Right hand feels almost normal. Left hand is stiff and a bit sore. Not playing rhythm games for a few days. In fact I haven't even played VROFL yet in my life lolz.
Special thanks: To Flash for giving me the idea to try this with him. I would not want to start this by myself. To anyone who was in VC encouraging me to keep going. I could not have done this without support from the community. Special thanks to Samurai for staying with me the majority of the time and supplying the hilarious dog smile picture. (LOLOLOL) And super special thanks to eliteninja for staying with me the entire time and making sure that I kept going no matter what. He was incredibly helpful.
Was interesting and fun at the end of the day. Definitely not doing anything like this again for years. If I do watch out 2 bill ;)
