Well, you have to get kinda close to the monitor and stare at the center of the circles, then quickly look at your hand.

I stared at it and saw the flames but when I looked away,I looked for some reason at a picture on my wall of boats on the sea and the sea was moving and the boats were bobbing up and down. :shock:

I guess they didn`t figure what a blonde could see with it. :biggrin:
It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.

It doesn't look like anything is on fire, it just wobbles your vision for about a half a second. Kinda like heat waves on hot asphalt or something. You gotta be quick.

I followed the instructions carefully, closely looking at the screen as instructed and then I looked away - oh my goodness what a strange effect that was - trouble was, I was looking at some geometric lace (about 6" deep) attached to the edge of a linen table cloth. The effect of the geometric lace (hard to describe but it appears to be swirling) coupled with the swirling, moving, optical effects on the screen made me see some very strange things :lol:

We know that I'm a drunk. I hope you understand that I am a person who is totally at ease with that. Which is not to say that I'm indifferent or I don't care, I do. It simply means that I trust and accept your judgment.
