I got this in an email once, and it looked the same for me this time. She turns counter-clockwise for the first 3/4 of the video then switches to clockwise. Does this mean I'm demented? :)

Maybe it means your a psychopath...did you take that test? I'm not one.:D

Are you kidding? Have you not seen what's connected to my arms? :borg:

That was funny--I showed Denise, after I had already watched it, and as soon as it got to the descriptive part for the left side thinkers,

she goes 'that's you'....:shrugs:

I could actually see it both ways....at will...I just tell myself which way it is and thats what I see....:perplexed:

That was really mind boggling! I only saw counter clock-wise until I started using my finger to follow the foot and then I could see the other way. Thanks for posting!!

I've even tried to force myself :crackwhip: to see her twirling counter clockwise, but I can see only other way.... :shrugs:

Anyway, I'm absolutely disagree with that description! They say I'm random! :hammer:

My husband and I both see her going counter clockwise and my son sees her going clockwise...really wierd...he's left handed and my husband and I are right handed if that matters.

And I am right handed. I don't know how much the right / left handed things plays into this. But I am sure someone has gotten a grant of millions of dollars to study this type of thing.

Sorry for the rant I am going through grant info today.

Sorry for the rant I am going through grant info today.

I remember before Reagan was president, he would be on the tonight show and read a list of things the government gave grant money for. Most were just plain crazy!

Here is a recent list:

The following are 30 incredibly stupid things that the federal government is spending money on….

#1 The U.S. government is spending $750,000 on a new soccer field for detainees held at Guantanamo Bay.

#2 The Obama administration plans to spend between 16 and 20 million dollars helping students from Indonesia get master’s degrees.

#3 If you can believe it, the U.S. government has spent $175,587 “to determine if cocaine makes Japanese quail engage in sexually risky behavior”.

#4 The U.S. government spent $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California.

#5 The federal government has shelled out $3 million to researchers at the University of California at Irvine to fund their research on video games such as World of Warcraft. Wouldn’t we all love to have a “research job” like that?

#6 The Department of Health and Human Services plans to spend $500 million on a program that will, among other things, seek to solve the problem of 5-year-old children that “can’t sit still” in a kindergarten classroom.

#7 Fannie Mae is about to ask the federal government for another $4.6 billion bailout, and it will almost certainly get it.

#8 The federal government once spent 30 million dollars on a program that was designed to help Pakistani farmers produce more mangos.

#9 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once gave researchers at the University of New Hampshire $700,000 to study methane gas emissions from dairy cows.

#10 According to USA Today, 13 different government agencies “fund 209 different science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education programs — and 173 of those programs overlap with at least one other program.”

#11 A total of $615,000 was given to the University of California at Santa Cruz to digitize photos, T-shirts and concert tickets belonging to the Grateful Dead.

#12 China lends us more money than any other foreign nation, but that didn’t stop our government from spending 17.8 million dollars on social and environmental programs for China.

#13 The U.S. government once spent 2.6 million dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.

#14 One professor at Stanford University was given $239,100 to study how Americans use the Internet to find love.

#15 The U.S. Postal Service spent $13,500 on a single dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

#16 The National Science Foundation once spent $216,000 to study whether or not politicians “gain or lose support by taking ambiguous positions”.

#17 A total of $1.8 million was spent on a “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas, Nevada.

#18 The federal government spends 25 billion dollars a year maintaining federal buildings that are either unused or totally vacant.

#19 U.S. farmers are given a total of $2 billion each year for not farming their land.

#20 The U.S. government handed one Tennessee library $5,000 for the purpose of hosting a series of video game parties.

#21 A few years ago the government spent $123,050 on a Mother’s Day Shrine in Grafton, West Virginia. It turns out that Grafton only has a population of a little more than 5,000 people.

#22 One professor at Dartmouth University was given $137,530 to create a “recession-themed” video game entitled “Layoff”.

#23 According to the Heritage Foundation, the U.S. military spent “$998,798 shipping two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas and $293,451 sending an 89-cent washer from South Carolina to Florida”.

#24 The U.S. Department of Agriculture once shelled out $30,000 to a group of farmers to develop a tourist-friendly database of farms that host guests for overnight “haycations”.

#25 The National Institutes of Health paid researchers $400,000 to find out why gay men in Argentina engage in risky sexual behavior when they are drunk.

#26 The National Institutes of Health also once spent $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam.

#27 The National Institutes of Health loves to spend our tax money on really bizarre things. The NIH once spent $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.

#28 According to the Washington Post, 1,271 different government organizations work on government programs related to counter terrorism and homeland security.

#29 The U.S. government spent $100,000 on a “Celebrity Chef Fruit Promotion Road Show in Indonesia”.

#30 The feds once gave Alaska Airlines $500,000 “to paint a Chinook salmon” on the side of a Boeing 737.

After reading some of that list I don't feel so bad about my art therapy projects being funded by federal grant money.

I am painting a horse and decorating a little box with government funds this week....my therapist sent the supplies home with me. It will help me get thru the holiday.All of my therapy is paid for by grant money.

I guess anyone in the US who pays taxes is contributing to my improved mental and emotional health.Thanks.:wave:

I have tried everything to get her to switch....I'll try this to.

I also blink my eyes while following the foot with my finger. It took me a while, but I finally got her going the other way. I found the test on Yahoo images, because this video only shows it for a second.
