Random Thursday: Illusions, an Earworm, and All the Vu

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā):  the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s acquired during the week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as actually sitting down and creating real content.

First, the Earworm
So you can have something to hum while you peruse the rest . . .
Because misery loves company, that’s why.

And it’s been two days.

(Thanks to Kev, who somehow discovered how much I love They Might be Giants and ran with it)

ooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo
Artful Illusions

I know the camera is viewing these gorgeous works of art at just the right angle to make them pop, and I’m not complaining, but I would love to see them from different perspectives and see how that affects them.

(From . . . Lillygrif? I think?)

ooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo

Not a Gif, I Swear

From, or possibly for, my husband, who apparently likes to watch my eyes cross . . .

funny science news experiments memes - More Optical Illusions, Michael

I swear to you, I had to embed this thing last so I could focus on the rest.  Ugh, sorry.

ooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo

Vujà Dey:

the strange feeling I’ve never seen this video before.

Weird . . . that feeling’s gone now . . .

(pretty sure I found this one myself—I’m addicted to Vsauce)

    • I know! It’s a peripheral vision thing, apparently, so it’s really difficult to make sure.

      I had to stop after a while—that yellow and purple combo is a problem, too.

  1. I love all those videos, but the one about deja vu answered one of my questions about that jerking when you fall asleep thing. That was happening a lot to me when I ran out of the prescription happy pills.

    And thank you for the earworm. I’ll be singing and dancing to that for the next day or two. Which should make tomorrow at work even more fun than usual.

    • I live to earworm, Lisa! 🙂

      I’m just glad i have a term for that tip-of-my-tongue-know-I-knew-it-a-second-ago feeling. Can’t quite remember what it is right now, but . . . 😀
