We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
okay, thru all sorts of eyeball gymnastics, i can make her turn to her left for a few revolutions--but only in my periphery--not when i stare directly. Hmmm. Cube is right--this has ramifications for politics, LOL!
Okay, I got it -- I moved the picture so only her legs below the knees are visible, got them going counterclockwise, then slowly scrolled up to the whole picture and she was going counterclockwise. And then she'd switch. Pretty cool.
When I first looked at the 'ballerina' her spin was counterclockwise. I then read the sidebar and looked again. She was now spinning clockwise and has been for each subsequent look. Will she ever reverse for me??
Lower your eyes to someplace midway between the bottom of her picture and the top of your keyboard. Just so you can barely see her IF you look at her. Then don't look at her--don't focus on anything and swing your head left, and swing your head right-nice smooth medium gait! Wow she turns left, right, left, right--neve does a complete turn!
I have seen her change direction, without blinking. Me thinks you play games.
However, when she stopped turning, and faced me and asked if I'd like to come over for dinner, that's when I realized I had started thinking not only with the other side of the brain, but with the other head completely. Shame on me!
In my group the right handed person sees her counter-clockwise and can't change it. I'm a lefty (handed only, not politically), initially saw her clockwise, she quickly reversed and reversed again. I must be the edge.
