It’s Friday and I have a ton of exam marking to do, so I don’t have time to post anything serious. Here, via @EdYong209, are a series of GIFs – those little animated loops people put on websites. Heaven knows how they make them.
All of them are taken from the excellent headlikeanorange Tumblr. If you’re on a mobile device or have a slow internet connection, or your computer is made of clockwork, you should allow some time for the page to load. (In one of those coincidences, I used to work at a French research centre in Gif (Gif-sur-Yvette, south of Paris), which is where I first met Jerry when he came on sabbatical to work on flies there.)
