So this is the kind of thing people find on-line at 2am......
For the life of me I couldn't get the image to go clockwise......and I'll leave it at that.

Naked chick spinning "anti-clockwise."

Must be one of those naked cachers doing her FTF dance.

I had her going both directions. Does that make me bi-polar?

Crap! I think my brain needs an over-haul! I had her going in both directions, doing a coupla cartwheels, back flips, then the naked FTF dance! Or was that me??? Man...what did DB put in the coffee this morning?

If you scroll down the screen, then back up, the brain re-focuses and switches sides.

This is pretty cool! Thanks.Smile

I had always assumed that I was almost a pure left-brained person but I can only see her going clockwise. I can't wait to hear what my wife says when I tell her I'm so feeling, imaginative, risk-taking, and appreciative. wink

Looks clockwise to me. I only get the sight for about 5 seconds before it goes blank. Maybe because of dial up?

OK!! Now I'm freaked out! This time, she is spinning clockwise.

Gotta go. I don't want to risk my boss walking by as I sit watching the naked chick spin.

I've seen this somewhere else recently, and the results are the same. I can see it both ways. I look, it's to the right. I look away and back, and it's to the left, and so on. Guess I'm middle-brained or no-brained.

Beat this. I was able to see her foot turning clockwise while the rest of her body was turning counter clockwise.

How sick does this make me?????

I think its timed... I had it going both ways. It switched the first time when I looked away, then the next time it just stopped and started going the other way...

I think my left brain must be dead; I can't see her spinning anti-clockwise no matter what... Confused

Here is my interpretation of the illusion.

It's not timed and the image is not actually spinning in either direction. It is turning 180 degrees back and forth and we are viewing it from a 45 degree angle. Our minds just think the image is spinning and assigns a direction to the "spin." If it was a color image, the deception would be quite obvious. That's why the image is in silhouette.
