These are small, but the ones out there are far away


how your brain sometimes makes the wrong choice

Preaching to the choir, my friend.


I wasn’t paying attention to the size of the cards at all.

When that was pointed out, I assumed that the cards were from two different sized decks, one regular and one “jumbo” deck that you would find in a senior/retirement center.

I learned that on Mr. Wizard’s Nickelodeon show.

forced perspective is wonderful if done properly!


Here for this. Well done.


Thank you SO much for this. I adored this film when it came out. Even saw it again in college on a re-release (back when Disney horded their films only to release them again every 10 or 20 years). The banshee scared the crap out of me. And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a film with so many people with really bad teeth. Sean Connery stood out for his perfect teeth. I don’t think the leprechauns counted because they were wee and, hell, leprechauns.

Lynch’s DUNE and how it benefits from some very convincing forced perspective shots. (Practical effects now appear to be returning to sfx kits… a very good thing.)

Bonus: On the subject of sandworms, a hilarious, pure gold reaction from the film’s Production Coordinator, Golda Offenheim at 4:56

Curiosity Show! I loved this show as a kid. Good for physics, science, psychology and the occasional con game.

Only sometimes? I wish.
