You may have seen this spinning dancer optical illusion created by Nobuyuki Kayahara, where your brain interprets a dancer’s silhouette as turning either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Then, with a little bit (or a lot) of effort, you can make her change direction:

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
