Okay so... let's pretend to ignore my (obvious) blogger growing pains for a moment... *ehem*
I am very curious what you all have to say about The Abominable Spinning Lady. And no, The Abominable Spinning Lady is not a Stephen King book... nor a movie featuring projectile vomit. It's a rather simple little optical illusion that I've noticed in the advertisement "banners" of some websites... have you seen her? (btw, I gave her the name "The Abominable Spinning Lady"... dont ask why she's "abominable" okay? Let's just say I felt "spinning lady" lacked for a little drama)..... so, she is this ballerina-esque lady spinning around and around on her pivot foot with a link underneath that says, "Which was is the ballerina spinning?" and something like "click here and find out if you are a genius!!!"
I always figured it was some false lead in for a penile enlargement site (Oh! Oh! I saw a hilarious comedy sketch about penile enlargement the other day! I'll see if I can find it!)... and it probably is but every time I've seen that ballerina I've wondered it it is humanly possible for anyone to see her spin a different direction than I did... to the extent that I actually thought it was a trick question. In case you didnt know I often have far to much time on my hands....that combined with a hopelessly inquisitive mind leads me to "googling" and reading up on some seriously bizarre topics (Did you know that the sun makes up 99.8% of the mass of the solar system?... and that some mushrooms contain more potassium per pound than bananas? (I can hardly think the word Bananas without singing "It's bananas! B.A.-N.A.-N.A. S!").... and that watermelons are stir fried and pickled in China?...wikipedia and I are like this *holds up crossed fingers*....)
Where was I? Oh yes the dizzy lady.... So I decided to get to the bottom of that blasted ballerina once and for all! I found a blog with a long and in depth thread discussing the left brained vs right brained (hemisphere) and the personality/intelligence level of people who see her spin one way vs. the other vs. both. Without further prompting I have to ask... Which way does The Spinning Lady spin for you? *** DO NOT CLICK ON THE "CLOCKWISE/COUNTERCLOCKWISE" BUTTONS TO REPLY TO THIS THREAD PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT****
