    Hi, Diane. That dancer is such an interesting device. It has been flying (dancing) around the Internet. What people are doing is watching it with someone else because it is amazing when you do not see the same thing as your friend. For me it kept switching but the person with whom I was watching it only saw it going clockwise.

  2. I’m envious, Stephanie–I could only see it go clockwise. I’ll have to try watching it with someone else next. It would be fascinating to know whether this in fact proves much of anything and, if it does, how it works.
