Clockwise or Counter-clockwise?
Click on the thumbnail to the left to see the animation. Which way is this dancer turning?
If you see this lady turning clockwise you are using your right brain.
If you see it the other way (counter-clockwise), you are using your left brain.
Some people see both ways, but most people see it only one way.
If you try to see it the other way and you do see, you're very versatile and probably have an above-average IQ.
Big full moon no illusion
This week's full Moon is the biggest full Moon of 2007. It's no illusion. Some full moons are genuinely larger than others and this week's is a whopper. Why?
The moon's orbit is an ellipse with one side 30,000 miles closer to earth than the other. The full moon of Oct. 25-26 is located on the near side, making it appear as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser full moons we've seen earlier in 2007.
A grizzled old man was eating in a truck stop when three Hell's Angels bikers walked in.
The first walked up to the old man, pushed his cigarette into the old man's pie and then took a seat at the counter.
The second walked up to the old man, spit into the old man's milk and then he took a seat at the counter.
The third walked up to the old man, turned over the old man's plate, and then he took a seat at the counter.
Without a muttering word of protest, the old man gets up from his seat and quietly leaves the diner.
Shortly thereafter, one of the bikers said to the waitress, "Humph, not much of a man, was he!"
And the waitress replied, "Not much of a truck driver either. He just backed his truck over three motorcycles!"
Last night, my friend and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some
machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out my wine.
She's such a bitch..
