To the right!

To the left!

But Why? said...

I sense a bun fight looming. Atta, girls!

The bit that really worries me is that I see her keep changing direction. I wonder what that says about me? I thought it might mean I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure. xx

Clockwise, I thought.

But Why? said...

I'm ever so sorry, Trousers. I didn't mean to exclude you from any argument. Gentlemen are of course most welcome to join in!

Myself, I think I prefer her going clockwise. I feel less dizzy that way. xx

Badger said...

She is clearly turning clockwise.. i can not even make her turn the other way. hmm. What does this mean!

Pixie said...

clockwise, and now I just feel sick!

But Why? said...

Badger,
I suspect it means that you're like almost everyone else (Casdok and I are excluded from this umbrella term). xx

Pixie,
Apologies. I hadn't realised you were so sensitive to scenes of poorly animated, badly lit gratuitous nudity... xx

Rob Clack said...

Clockwise when viewed from above. I tried hard to make her go the other way but couldn't. I'll have to have another go. Nothing to do with gratuitous nudity, honest!

Clockwise - which, given the interpretation, is quite surprising.

But Why? said...

Rob C,
I'm not certain this is based on the sense of position with respect to the dizzy woman - I don't think the vantage point changes when you interpret the rotation in the opposite sense, just that the lady's front becomes her back, left leg is right and vice-versa. Either way, I loved the comment that was left at the original site that was along the lines of "I couldn't be bothered working out which way she was turning, I was just looking for the light switch..."

Kindablue,
I think if the sense in which you see the woman turning is indicative of hemispherical dominance, the article's got confused. Easy to do when you're watching something change direction before your eyes every few moments...
