Here's a freaky test: are you left-brained or right-brained? The dancer started out spinning counterclockwise for me, and then I focused and got her to switch directions more or less on command. I'm not sure if this means I'm flexible, wishy-washy, or just good at giving myself a headache.

Yoko Ono dedicated the Imagine Peace project yesterday in Iceland, on what would have been John Lennon's 67th birthday. This looks so cool.

Has anyone tried Lucid, a legal absinthe for us Americans who can't handle the European wormwood?

If you act fast (and have a spare few million), you could own the house that inspired "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" by H.P. Lovecraft! I checked the realtor listing and it's still for sale.

'Tis the season to shop for spooky things: Grandin Road has pricey but pretty stuff, while Curiosities has some more manageable trinkets for this time of year.

Oooo....that was freaky. I saw her move both directions almost immediately, as if she were convulsing!(haha)

YES! They serve legal absinthe in pretty poppy seed glasses at the bar Mamma's in the Port of New- tastes like J├Ągermeister.

I only see her going clockwise no matter how long I look.

Try focusing on her foot and making it change direction - that's what I had to do at first, and then it got easier!

I tried. I can't do it.
But I saw this posted somewhere else where it had the opposite directions for right brain/left brain so I'm wondering if its not just an optical illusion thats not particularly indicative of anything. Still I was happy to hear a few tumbleloggers reporting that they only saw clockwise so its not just me.
