An odd couple

Nothing much to write so here's a couple of "odd things" from the wonderful WWW

First up a little game. Americans call this a Rube Goldberg device, what we would call a Heath Robinson machine over here (not sure who came first, their birthdays make Robinson older, but only by a few years). Heath Robinson illustrated the wonderful Professor Branestawm books which I loved as a kid, sadly, they don't seem to still be in print.

The other thing is a truly wonderful optical illusion just read the instructions first. This site was featured on fark, so it may be unavailable temporally if the guy's had his bandwidth splattered again. He has a couple of similar illusions scattered across his site.
