Ceci n'est pas une spirale

This must be one of the most convincing optical illusion I have ever seen.

The image shows an optical illusion that has concentric circles with checker-board patterns between them.  The arrangement makes it look as if the circles make a spiral where in fact they are not.

Don't know where it originally came from, I found this optical illusion that looks like a spiral on Make's website . They also show a version traced by lines to help convince you that this really is NOT a spiral. :)

Who knew a simple battery, some magnets and a piece of copper wire could produce so much nerdy fun? :)

Things to do on an exam when you'll fail anyway

I found a hillarious list on the web called "50 things to do on an exam when you know you are going to fail anyway". Here are some of the best ones:

  • Bring a pillow. Fall asleep (or pretend to) until the last 15 minutes. Wake up, say "oh nuts, better get cracking" and do some gibberish work. Turn it in a few minutes early.
  • Walk in, get the exam, sit down. About five minutes into it, loudly say to the instructor, "I don't understand ANY of this. I've been to every lecture all semester long! What's the deal? And who are you? Where's the regular guy?"
  • Run into the exam room looking about frantically. Breathe a sigh of relief. Go to the instructor, say "They've found me, I have to leave the country" and run off.
  • Do the entire exam in another language. If you don't know one, make one up! For math or science exams, try using Roman numerals.
  • As soon as the instructor hands you the exam, eat it.
  • Every five minutes, stand up, collect all your things, move to another seat, continue with the exam.
  • Turn in the exam approximately 30 minutes into it. As you walk out, start commenting on how easy it was.
  • Go to an exam for a class you have no clue about, where you know the class is very small, and the instructor would recognize you if you belonged. Claim that you have been to every lecture. Fight for your right to take the exam.
  • Bring cheat sheets for another class and staple them to the exam, with the comment "Please use the attached notes for references as you see fit."
  • After you get the exam, call the instructor over, point to any question, ask for the answer. Try to work it out of him/her.
  • During the exam, take apart everything around you. Desks, chairs, anything you can reach.
  • Answer the exam with the "Top Ten Reasons Why Professor xxxx Stinks."

The complete list can be found at 50 things to do on an exam when you know you are going to fail anyway .
