"Lightning Rod"


Biker's penis hit by lightning

A Croatian motorbiker's penis was zapped by lightning as he stopped beside the road to take a leak.
Ante Djindjic, 29, from Zagreb, said: "I don't remember what happened. One minute I was taking a leak and the next thing I knew I was in hospital.
"Doctors said the lightning went through my body and because I was wearing rubber boots it earthed itself through my penis."
Djindjic, who suffered light burns to his chest and arms, added: "Thankfully, the doctors said that there would be no lasting effects, and my penis will function normally eventually."

The McCollough Effect

Weird illusion seemingly based on brain function. I couldn't'get it to work the first time, but I only did the standard 30 seconds or so you do with optical illusions. When I looked at the colored boxes for 4 or 5 minutes it worked perfectly.


Update: 20 mins later and it still seems to be working, although a little less maybe.
