    Watch the lady spin.

    Watch the spinning lady. What does it tell you about yourself?

    It's fake. It's just a gif file that changes direction randomly.

    You think?

    I could make the direction switch at pretty random intervals once I figured out how to do it.

    1st sip of vodka, she was going clockwise
    2nd sip she was going counter clockwise
    3rd sip she was going clockwise again.
    This kept repeating till all I saw was the ceiling.

    Same here. Not sure how I do it. I think I have to look away. When I first look, she is going clockwise but I watch she starts going counter clockwise and stays that way till I look away again.

    Same here. She started out clockwise but if I focused enough she'd change direction.

    She does have that South of the Boarder* air about her.

    She needs to be on a pole. (Someone had to say it.)

    At first look I saw her spinning clockwise. Then I noticed she had pointy nipples and I looked away and thought "I am a dirty old man". I looked again and she was spinning counter clockwise.

    It takes a bit of effort, but I can see her going either way. She was spinning anti-clockwise when I first saw her, though.
