The Rattleback phenominon
Hmmm ..... Some body has a lot of time on their hands ..... He he
I was just thinking about making one or two of those for my kids.
(I like to mess with their minds!!)
Eh- wha- ack. Dang it, Physics broke again...
I just did that exact thing in the dining room and it really works.
My kids are all over it, they can't figure out if I glued the ruler or what!!!
(These are reasons why they listen when I tell them that I know even their private thoughts.)
Always happy to help a parent keep complete dominance over their offspring through subversion and lies.
Sometimes we gotta beat the Devil at his own game!!
I balanced it on a guitar stand and it freaked out my dog too!!
Hi Ride4theSon, A bit off topic here.....but is that a 'wee westie' in your pic? I have one too. I just love the westies. Daisy is seven years old now and the smartest little dog I've ever had. In Scotland, Westies are a really popular dog. There are four on my street alone.
Sorry folks, I'll return to the topic now, just got carried away when I seen the dog pic....That just worked for me too. Clever trick.
Actually she's a Lhasa Apso, but she just got her summer haircut so the short hair really throws people. I like Westie's too.
That is cool!
AHHHHH....On closer inspection, I see she has floppy ears, not a westie trait. Either way she is a little beauty.
Thank you, her name is Roxy.
She's a little sweetheart.
She looks like a Lhasa if we let her hair grow, but frankly it's a hastle to keep brushed and in the summer she is much happier with it short.
Our other dog is a Cockapoo, my oldest daughter and him won a Pink, Two Blue ribbons and took Purple (first place) in the county 4-H show last year!! :smile_anim:
Just what I do with Daisy, get her cut right in. Can't imagine a cocker spaniel and poodle mix, imagine he would be a clever dog with lots of energy. Must have been lovely for your daughter to win the ribbons
I have two dogs too. The other is a Basset Hound. The least said about him the better. Stubborn as a mule, but twice as crafty.
Wouldn't be without either of them though
I just set up a place where I can post pictures now.
In fact, that was my first pic on this web site other than in my profile.
I'll put a picture up of our Cockapoo (Baxter).
I'm pretty sure we have a "Pets " thread, I'll put him in there.
