Pair this with a looping Shepard's Ascending Tone, and you've got yourself a party!

I need a screen locker that lets me play animated gifs then count the bodies of people accumulate outside my cube.

Gee, good I already took my Keppra or I'd be having a seizure-fest. Could you please include a page break or something before confronting people with epilepsy with these trigger-GIFs? K thx bai.

It's not an ideal solution but you can turn off animated images in firefox.
Sorry, I don't know how to do it in other browsers.

Damn. I misread the headline. I was expecting Penfold stairs.

Yeah, I know that plugin (use it on my Desktop), doesn't work on Firefox Mobile though. Thanks anyway

It looks more like climbing up a regular old helix to me.

Yeah. Also this.
I guess it still hits the same "infinite staircase" note as the classic Penrose stairs, but there's no sense of any paradox here.
ETA: Sorry, meant to reply to knappa

Word. Pretty cool, but looks nothing like Penrose stairs to me beyond, uh, the stairs.

Agreed; you need to see the whole thing to see a paradox. There was this fun little article I read a while back that was about this. "On the Cohomology of Impossible Figures" by R. Penrose http://www.jstor.org/stable/1575844
