a funny magic trick

i got a chuckle out of this, ’cause it really works. makes a neat office-trick:

Allright here’s what I want you to do – while sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

Now, while doing this, draw the number “6” in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction and there’s nothing you can do about it!

nowpublic.com uses my photos (with my permission)

Nowpublicmy pictures from saturday evening are now part of a story at nowpublic.com.

how does that happen you ask?

this afternoon i got an email from clorenz41 [1] through flickr. he asked if he could use my photos “for a few stories that have been sent in”. the mail included some fancy link which made the whole process work automagically.

so after some clicks my pictures are now part of a story from conneticutkati [2], where she quotes another article on indymedia.ch.

if you want to read the post at nowpublic, then click here or take a look at the screenshot on the left.

if this is happening more often, maybe i should start to take money for my images?

[1] he is: “Director, Contributor Relations, NowPublic.”

[2] i wonder why she writes about the antifa abendspaziergang, although she’s from vancouver…
