4 of us saw you at the bus stop wondering what was in that mysterious tinfoil package that you were caressing with your hands. We kept trying to get a glance at it and caught each other several times in the process. Alas, you didn’t reveal your goods until you were on the bus sitting directly behind me.
I heard the soft crackle of tin-foil opening and several heads turned around; no surprise that it was the other 3 gentleman who were stealing glances at your mystery package 5 minutes earlier.
Then it hit me.
The god awful smell of your breakfast food waffled through the air as gently as a scud missile during Desert Storm. I immediately turned around and saw that you were eating a huge hunk of Munster cheese.
After realizing what you were eating, I immediately turned around to make it painfully less obvious that I was on the verge of vomited in my mouth. The master card moment was when the person sitting next to you got up and moved 5 rows up to try to evade the smell.
Don’t get me wrong. I love cheese. Everyone loves cheese. It’s just that myself and your fellow bus commuters just don’t love the world’s 4th smelliest cheese in the morning sitting right next to us.
The Herald Sun, a newspaper in Australia, has a cool page up with an animated image that can tell you whether you are right- or left-brained. Here is the original page, with the details.
Look at the image below. Which way is the dancer model turning, clockwise or counterclockwise?
Most people see it turning counterclockwise, which is correlated to being left-brained. If you see it turning clockwise, you’re right-brained. Can you make it change directions? for some it can be difficult to impossible. I can get it to change briefly if I really try (I see it turning counterclockwise).Here’s what they say it all means:
LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
words and language
present and past
math and science
knows object name
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
“big picture” oriented
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)
knows object function
Some people are able to see it change directions if you stare intently at it, or close your eyes and re-open then.I’m only able to see the woman turning clockwise. Looks like I’m strongly right-brained!
Good to know I’m not considered “safe”, “practical” or “reality based” 🙂
Despite the poor quality of the camera in my smartphone, I still take a lot of pictures with it. While going through the pictures yesterday, it surprised me how random some of the photos really are.
I figured it’d be fun to do a collage of mobile photos and have you match up captions to the photos.
Now the possible captions:
A. The morning after B. Hurry up Nelly! C. Harold & Kumar at White Castle D. Mini-me E. The most manly drink on the planet F. Best bathroom view in the city G. This town has no crime H. Maybe it’s good to be single afterall
