Productivity killer: Line Rider (Flash game)

What crude line-art flash game is getting more search hits on Google than Kim Jong Il? It's called Line Rider

Quote
Part Jackass stunt, part physics lesson, Line Rider encourages users to "draw" their own ramps, hills, and slopes with a pencil tool, then sends a virtual sledder (wearing a red scarf) along the route until he swoops, swerves and crashes. Build an elaborate enough course and you'll feel like a little kid playing in the snow again, zooming downhill, popping up in the air, wiping out on a ramp jump a la Evel Knievel.

It's fun!

 :D This is a funny game.
Not a great fun because if you do some error, you have to erase it all and start again :S
So, that makes watching other people's videos much easyer!
Here's the link for a bunch of them on youtube:
Some of them are quite unbelievable!!

Fun but very hard. Would be nice to be able to specify how "tough" the rider is. A line eraser would also be nice. :P
