If anyone’s sent me a message recently, I got the little red icon but there was no actual message (which saddens me deeply). I don’t know if it’s just tumblr messing up and showing me an icon for no reason, or if there’s a message that hasn’t come through, but that’s been happening loads recently, so if I don’t reply to your messages, that may be why!
when you find that perfect gif but don’t know how to use it
You can reverse the flow of the hotdogs if you concentrate hard enough
oh my god you can
What I find fascinating is that they appear to go in much faster than they come out. Hank, explain this to me using science.
I am sadly not Hank, but I think I can explain anyway, for any of my followers who may also have been wondering. :) Or at least, I can have a go.
Here are two consecutive frames of the gif:
If you focus on a particular row of hotdogs, you can see there are two ways of looking at the movement. If you see the hotdogs as moving upwards, there’s only a small shift in position between each frame of the gif, whereas if you see them as moving downwards, there’s a much larger shift - each hotdog moves almost to the position of the one below it between frames. This means the hotdogs move a longer distance downwards in the same time as it takes them to move a shorter distance upwards, so our eyes interpret them as moving faster.
I think that’s probably why it’s easier (at least, I found it easier) to see the hotdogs moving out of the trousers than into them. If each hotdog moved exactly half way to the position of the next one in the chain between frames of the gif, I’m guessing it would be just as easy to see them moving upwards as downwards.
