Do this brief test for a real surprise!!!

Cenesthetic hallucination is what this is called. It's amazing!*

Click on the link and then click on Click Me to Get Trippy (last line on the webpage).
Look at the screen for 30 seconds straight without looking away. Now don't look away or you'll ruin it.
Then look at your hand holding the mouse for a real surprise:


Neave Strobe - Like dropping acid, but not


*Do NOT use if you are subject to photosensitive epilepsy (thanks, Bram!).

Add the caution: Do not use if you are subject to photosensitive epilepsy.

Really weird. My first "trip"!

I did it for about five seconds and still got the intended effect, when looking at mouse hand. Any more would have drove my eyes crazy!

Very cool.

I'm at work, but couldn't resist checking it out. At about 20 seconds into my stare, one of my staff members comes in my office with a question. I try to answer as best I can with her face swelling and expanding while I talk. I will try again later with my office door shut.

Expect to be called for the company "random" drug test! I wonder what your face looked like as you tried to keep a straight face!

I've never done hallucinogenics, but that did seem pretty 'trippy'. Thanks, that was fun!

That was wild. Wooooooooo

I looked over at my little 4' artificial Christmas tree with round and teardrop ornaments freely hanging...and saw the whole thing ebbing and flowing in size as I moved my eyes very slightly left and right.

The unmoving ceiling fan was even more interesting. The blades "changed shape" completely.

Nothing with several attempts with and without glasses. Acid queen says it works just fine though.

Yeah, I watched it and all those things, described by others, stopped.

I must be doing it wrong, the only effect I'm getting is a headache.
