The Optical Illusion Dragon

May 25th, 2007 at 12:26 pm

I recorded this at the Franklin Institute in Philedelphia on our recent trip down to Savannah.

The movement of the head is the illusion. In reality the head is actually concave, and it’s a skewed perception of depth that creates the illusion (in person, you need to close one eye in order to view the effect).

Don’t be afraid

I’ve only recently started watching “the show with zefrank” but it’s pretty funny. The episode released today, titled “Don’t be afraid” is, however, a little more serious, but I think he makes some good points. So I’m sharing the video below.

Profanity (&%*$@^$!)

August 11th, 2006 at 2:31 pm

Embedded below, Penn and Teller take on the history of Profanity in an episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit! (Embedded, at least until the video is taken off of Google Video)

Bullshit! (also known as Penn & Teller: Bullshit!) is an American, Emmy-nominated television series, running since 2003 on the premium cable channel Showtime. The series has achieved worldwide success, being shown in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The series is hosted by professional magicians/comedians Penn and Teller. Four seasons have aired, and it has been renewed for a fifth season, currently in production.[1] The show reflects the atheist, libertarian stance of the duo, and inherits their characteristically blunt, aggressive presentation.

I’m a little over-obsessed at the moment with “The Truth About Cats and Dogs (is that they die)” by Pony Up!. The video is up on youtube.com and embeded below.
