  3. Wow...the right vs. left brain one is interesting. I thought who would possibly see it counter-clockwise? until I scrolled down, scrolled back up, and it was clearly counter-clockwise. Crazy stuff.

    1. Yeah, freaky, isn't it? The more I analyzed it the more difficult it became to understand how my brain was perceiving it.

  4. Jeff, I played the Akinator. It guessed my first character (Michael Jackson) on the first try. I played again, thinking of Marvin Gaye. It came up with Bob Marley, but guessed Marvin Gaye the second time. Pretty cool. :)

    1. Yeah, it picked Tina Turner and Aragorn (Strider from LOTR) right off the bat with me. I had to do one real and one fictional just to see. They must have a rather extensive database to pull that off so well.
