  1. Very cool, but as Brainspore alludes to it will only work from the spot where the photo is taken (which I would assume is the entrance). I would love to see it from the other side.

  2. We had the same carpet at my old school (http://mdm.gnwc.ca). After a while you kind of don’t notice it any more, but if you’re ever stumbling around in a semi-drunk Christmas party haze, the carpet suddenly becomes your worst enemy.

  3.  It really could be a serious problem for someone with vertigo. Maybe they’re assuming that no one with that condition would be shopping for video games?
