My God, it's full of stairs!

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.
alexander_janss at February 25th, 2014 16:15 — #11
Yeah, I know that plugin (use it on my Desktop), doesn't work on Firefox Mobile though. Thanks anyway

This gives me a strong desire to play Mario Kart, Rainbow Road

It looks more like climbing up a regular old helix to me.
stephen_schenck at February 25th, 2014 21:25 — #14
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
hi_endian at February 25th, 2014 22:47 — #15
Word. Pretty cool, but looks nothing like Penrose stairs to me beyond, uh, the stairs.
knappa at February 26th, 2014 00:49 — #16
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

I'm suddenly getting Revolutionary Girl Utena flashbacks.
