I've been showing that in talks - makes the audience all slowly rotate their heads.

The funny thing is, for me it switches directions... At the first glance it was ACW and I even thought how in the world could anyone see it as CW? Then I looked at it much later and it was CW! It switched back and forth several times - unfortunately I cannot make the switch consciously, no matter how hard I concentrate :'(

LOL Chris :)

And found the other topic.
Cool! So this came around before... :o may be I shouldn't post anything. Too much RL, and then to have to trawl through hundreds of pages of posts to see if it's been posted before?  :-\ seems like too much work... :D

How about these:

  (this one you can "command" to spin in any direction... with the power of your thought!)

which tread have they been posted on?   ::);D

ROFL! :D :D :D :D

Strangely, with Mallory's picture, it was for the first time ever that I saw her spinning CW! My right brain was obviously in gear for the first time. Or maybe not. Maybe size matters?

Sometimes I can make her spin the way I want, but usually not.
