Somehow that reminds me off my college days or rather "nights' while lets say ..."experimenting." I only live 1 1/2 hrs from there and its now on my Bucket list. Dont know if youre aware of where the name comes from but its named after the famous artist MC Esher and his work "the ascending descending stairway" . The guy was a Timothy Leary follower as were may of us in the sixty/seventies .F Fred any input here? "Are you experienced" ? :oops: :P

These hoaxes can be fun and are nothing new, except in the technology of creating them.

There was the ten foot Cardiff giant in the 1860s who was supposed to be a petrified man who was dug up in Cardiff NY.

In the 1960s or maybe a bit later there was the organization that set out to correct the shocking and immodest display of genitals of the animals in our zoos and on the streets. Picture an elephant with diapers on. This was all done very seriously with really good spokesmen and received a lot of press coverage with suggested articles of clothing for animals. A lot of people really believed it and it lasted several years.

The one I liked best was the man who invented shoes to put on your hands. He claimed that all our back problems were caused by walking on two feet and if we would revert to going on all fours we would cure this. He did a really good job of appearing serious and would get very angry at interviewers who could not keep a straight face.

I never said I didn't figure it out.

I looked it up and found it was just a hoax done by cameras for a festival.

Imagine the Fire Cheif's expression if he ever saw that one :eek2:
