When you have a sense of humor and some free time, this is what you can come up with: Let’s Play Ancient Greek Punishment!

This amusing little creation lets users play vintage-style video games based on Ancient Greek mythology. You’re asked to toggle the “G” and “H” keys as rapidly as you can … until you realize something: the games, like the punishments meted out in Greek mythology, have no end. They go on for eternity.

The Theoi Greek Mythology internet encyclopedia will tell you more about the suffering of Sisyphus, Prometheus and others.
