Subliminal Messages?

Towards the end of the 1st semester of 2005, I was drawn in to take a look at a very interesting email sent by a mate of mine, it had a hyper-link to a website www.subliminalmessages.com and consisted of very interesting and great use of psycological and technological effects. The website of course persisted on testing our brain capacity on still images that were also moving (huh?), exactly. For anyone who took Psyc 109 or 108 (I forget which paper it was) you would of seen some of the images that the lecturer tried and amazed us with, the the grey smuge? but if you look hard enough a different colour came up, I think it was green. However the website doesn't just consist of still images testing our mind, there are also short video-clips that also make great psycological effects, but also have great twist with the use of camera angles and when combined are quite funny (I recommend the steering wheel with the old lady). The only real downside to this website is that you can't choose your image or video-clip you simply have to keep clicking the next button, this can sometimes take a while especially if your computer is slow (like mine). However there are many images and video-clips to get you occupied with amazement and awww?
