Found: Newspaper Ladder!

Hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry about the lapse in posts, I had a little technical difficulty with the scanner over the weekend. On the upside, EM reader Joseph was able to find the trick mentioned in last Wednesday's post! has instructions on how to make a ladder from a newspaper:

Thanks, Joseph!

This ladder also got me thinking of one of my favorite childhood toys, the Jacob's Ladder (not the electrical one). I had one of these toys when I was around 3 or 4, and I remember looking at it often. Mine was pink on one side and yellow on the other, and I remember that I thought of lemonade when I played with it because of the colors. I guess I enjoyed visual illusions from a young age! has a video on how to make one out of cassette tapes (you might turn down the sound though- the music is a little annoying):

Happy Monday! Regular posts will resume tomorrow :)
