155 Years Before the First Animated Gif, Joseph Plateau Set Images in Motion with the Phenakistoscope | Colossal

155 Years Before the First Animated Gif, Joseph Plateau Set Images in Motion with the Phenakistoscope | Colossal | Walking On Sunshine | Scoop.it

Nearly 155 years before CompuServe debuted the first animated gif in 1987, Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau unveiled an invention called the Phenakistoscope, a device that is largely considered to be the first mechanism for true animation. The simple gadget relied on the persistence of vision principle to display the illusion of images in motion.

Basset Hound Singing - With Piano Accompaniment

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Our basset, Sir Oliver T. Puddington, does not howl. But he is very vocal. While he does not sing (yet?), his favorite song is MJ's Thriller (he is very keen on the Vincent Price parts). While watching this video, Oliver was more interested in the "Good boy!"s

Watch a Bunch of Adorable Kids React to an Old Apple Computer | Walking On Sunshine | Scoop.it
It's hard to know which specific emotion this video of kids reacting to old computers from the late 1970s and early 1980s evokes. The feeling is somewhere between sheer delight (how cute are they?!) and utter horror (how old am I?!) Either way, it's worth it.

Walk With Mike

Walk With Mike | Walking On Sunshine | Scoop.it


But the truth is, exercise does not work, diets do not work, feeling crummy does not work. Nothing works. My advice: Quit trying to be something you're not, be happy with the life you've been given, and just go for a pleasant walk outside. With me. Wherever you are. Get off the treadmill, stop drinking diet Coke, throw out all the rules. It's all a scam and it conspires to keep you miserable. If it says "low-fat" or "sugar-free" or "just 100 calories!" throw it out. Remember, one of the main tenets of capitalism is to have the consumer filled with fear, insecurity, envy and unhappiness so that we can spend, spend, spend our way out of it and, dammit, just feel better for a little while. But we don't, do we? The path to happiness - and deep down, we all know this -- is created by love, and being kind to oneself, sharing a sense of community with others, becoming a participant instead of a spectator, and being in motion. Moving. Physically moving around all day. Lifting things, even if it's yourself. Going for a walk every day will change your thinking and have a ripple effect. You'll find yourself only eating when you're truly hungry. And if you're not hungry, go clean your room, or have sex, or call a friend on the phone. Without knowing it, you'll start eating like the French (there is no French word for "fast-food") -- and you will feel better. You do not feel better admonishing yourself or beating yourself up or setting up a bunch of unrealistic rules and goals with all the do's and dont's that are just begging to be broken.
