David Chase pulls a JK Rowling

Apparently it's all the rage these days for people to wait a few months and then give people extra dirt on what happens to their characters after the story is supposedly over:

A little bit of randomness for you

I'll just copy the description as it was sent to me: "This music video tells the story of an albino man training for a prestigious hot dog eating contest (complete with Rocky-style montage). It is set to the music of Molotov, a Mexican rap-metal band who are apparently covering 'Rock Me, Amadeus.'"



This was sent to me in response to my invite to a Buffalo-chicken-wing-eating contest that a friend and I are having later today. I will let you know if I am the victor or not.

I need your help

this is very, very important, more so than the presentation I have yet to finish for a HUGE meeting tomorrow:

which way is the dancer turning?

I don't want to ruin the trick by saying too much before you click over, but first: I definitely see it the right-brain way (yaaaaaaay lefties), but for the life of me I can't see how the left-brain way could possibly be right. do any of you bori--I mean, logical right-handers see it the left-brain way? can you (and now I'm pointing at *you*, neuroscientist) explain why this happens and why it's so hard to see it both ways?
