Meh. Whenever you get something online that says 'stare at this for...', it's always the same. You can see it coming a mile off.

So this is what is to come whilst we twiddle our brains in anticipation of Fatal Rev? Well, there is a consensus here as to the central issue of despair in the TCC.

..To what degree of despairage does the offensive weasel represent? I for one, didn't get it at first. What struck me was the almost" haptic", the proustian, sensory hallucination i had upon coming face to face witha 2 dimensional fang bearing rodent. I smelled ,,or rather, some part of my brain triggered the sensory experience of stinky rodent breath, or at least,,what I think it would be. It was very close to 2 summer's day old road kill, i live in Arizona mind you,,or upon investigation of answering the regrettful question of,",what is that smell?",,one finds the dead and decomposed mouse carcass in the back of the cabinet under the sink. Yes, that odor. That is the odor I smelled upon the view of inflamed rodentia.

Very unexpected followed the memory of a pale girl in my 1st grade class, who alway had a patina, the slitest wiff, of that odor about her, and therefore was deemed to have cooties. Kiddies are so cruel. I felt very sorry for her for another reason. I cannot remember her , without one of her arms being in a cast. Oh my god.

There are illusions and there are illusions. The opticals presented weren't bad, imho. But , as with most optical illusions, are fun for only a bit. Yes, no matter how hard we try,,our brains are prejudiced to perceive the world in a certain way. Acknowledge it and then one can deal with it, nothing to despair over.

So, I admit I may have missed the intended " fun" of the frenchy weasel, i did try to find the experience mentioned by the posters above. Perhaps the casts on her arms prevented my sharing. Yet, a thought did pop into my brain,,my muse being most merciful, and it was, this is very much like a electronic " Pull my Finger"..rather than a startleling sound,,a startleling picture is to garner a repulsive reaction,,of course totally harmless in either regard, but inthe reaction is the Ha that i didn't get because I was elsewhere with weasel breath. So, like hinted at above,,just how many times can one be weaseled with suprise,,and I have found the answer by not despairing, but, admittedly , the answer may include some elements of despair. Strange thing this despair. It can weasel into anything.

The confusion continued with the banner yellow and red , " you've been slammered",,or whatever. I have serious doubts as to the e-pull my finger creators ability to know what was being experienced by myself upon the instant weasel...Weasel breath is closer to slime ( as indicated above) than slam. The joke seemed more on him or her than me. I think that is required in dealing with despair. Turn it around, send it packing, by out doing it.

Perhaps thats is the problem of " optical illusions"...They depend on only 2 dimensions to work. Despair is the same. The, "either or" scenario, of which neither, either, nor, or are acceptable ,,is what drives despair around our personal , "Hood"...The creation of the 3 or 4th or 5th alternate takes the gas out of despair as does the real 3 dimesional world take the illusion out of " optical illusions".

Perhaps more fun,,and I would be suprised if there isn't already some sort of " site" already set up on the web ,,anybody already there?,,yeaaa,,a Proustian test site...pictures of common cookies, or common foods, whatever, ,,and associated polls on what kind of " haptic" or sensory hallucinations folks experienced upon seeing the items,,and what kind of memorys were ellicited...another freebie for anybody who wants it....Thanks Nathan.........................................MEL
