I'm pretty sure the "chicken-cross-the-road" joke is a pun. If it's successful, it's on the other side of the road. If the road is perilous, The Other Side is the afterlife.

Backslashes

I searched my .bash_history for the line with the highest ratio of special characters to regular alphanumeric characters, and the winner was: cat out.txt | grep -o "\[[(].*\[])][^)]]*$" ... I have no memory of this and no idea what I was trying to do, but I sure hope it worked.

In most western languages, all slashes are _forward_ slashes. We should call them "upslashes" and "downslashes".

Trippy spinning optical illusion

Spinning Optical Illusion

Somehow, this woman seems to be spinning both clockwise and counter-clockwise simultaneously. This is worse than the spinning ballerina. Anyone know who did this? Randomly found it on Facebook and couldn't trace the source back...

The funny thing is that I'm so used to looking at point clouds & wireframes that it absolutely will not switch directions for me unless I look away from it and look back.

I can't see it either. She's spinning counter clockwise to me. Doesn't seem to matter what I do.
