Since I spend most of my day driving, I have become addicted to podcasts, which I can play in the platypus to my heart’s content because it will play CDRWs with MP3 files. I try to pass things I have listened to on to Joy but invariably forget (or garble) the details. Joy on the other hand has a constant Internet connection at work, so she has developed a large collection of blogs she regularly reads. She can simply send a link on to me when she wants to share something. The thing is, what invariably happens is that my short attention span and overall click-happy tendencies often lead me into a maze of increasingly strange subject matter. Which is how I got to this:

Weird little optical illusion

A coworker found this today. Pretty neat.
