whack-a-mole

1. Literally, an arcade game in which the player uses a small rubber mallet to hit robotic toy moles that pop up randomly in holes laid out across the surface of the machine. I love coming to this old arcade. I have a lot of fond memories playing whack-a-mole and skee ball here as a kid.
2. By extension, a situation in which problems continue to arise faster than one is able to solve or cope with them, resulting in piecemeal, incomplete, or temporary results. These dang pop-up ads are so annoying! It's a game of whack-a-mole every time I go online these days! Every time we think we have the software debugged, more problems show up. We've just been playing whack-a-mole from day one!

Though the iodine number obtained is not significantly different from that at Samples A and D at 400[degrees]C, it is believed that the WHAC activated at 376[degrees]C and a heating rate of 5[degrees]C/minute and dwell time of 30minutes will probably give a higher yield, higher bulk density, lower ash content and lower moisture content than that activated at 400[degrees]C (Samples A and D) based on the trend of data in Table 1.
The challenge of producing WHAC lies in the energy and time expended in sun drying the plants since WH has a moisture content of about 95%.
