Here’s a cool facebook trick

I usually avoid trying thingies like this on facebook, thinking they’re a waste of time and not working, but for some reason I tried this one, and it works! It creates “magic circles” following your mouse pointer.

Press up arrow, up,down,down, left,right,left,right,b,a,enter key then right click. Then press up then down & magic circles will appear! πŸ˜€

One small correction: I’ve got a comment for this on Digg and the guy says:

old. and that last “rightclick+up+down” is completely unnecessary.

Do you know other cool facebook tricks (that work)?

Ever seen a drop of water bounce?

water dropHere’s a great video that shows how a drop of water actually behaves, shot at 2000 frames per second and displayed 67 times slower. When the drop hits the water surface, it’s not completely connected to it, because there is a thin layer of air between the two bodies of water, but as the air is pushed aside, an important part of the drop merges with the water surface, and the rest bounces. And this happens all the time until the drop is completely dissolved! Isn’t it amazing?

Piano stairs at Stockholm metro

A giant piano keyboard lays on the stairs of Stockholm’s Odenplan metro station.
