Website Wednesday

Website Wednesday is a regular feature in which we highlight one (or a couple) of sites from the Billions floating around the Intertoobz that just might help you with your Herculean task of educating inquiring minds. Any and all suggestions for future editions are welcome.

Truth be told, I had no idea what site to feature for this Wednesday, so I Googled something like “awesome websites.” Here’s one that I found: Get High Now. That’s right–no teaching and learning resource this Wednesday. Instead, I share with you “the multimedia appendage of the historic and thrilling book, Get High Now (without drugs)—an illustrated, mind-blowing magic carpet ride of more than 175 ways to alter human perception and consciousness (without drugs or alcohol).” The site features a handful of visual and auditory “highs,” as well as explanations of how these sensory illusions work. Here’s my favorite: Chronosynclastic-Infundibulum, which you might know by its more common name: the “rotating snake” (be sure to read the health warning beforehand!). Some of the audio ones take a while to load, but I’m sure they offer some fun “trips” as well. Log on, tune in, drop out.
