--from a page of stereoviews of old Japan - interesting, by the time I saw it I don't think it had those tropical-looking trees. (The other photos on the stereoview page are probably a bit more interesting though.)
I posted a site using that "wigglegram trick" before, it's a nice way to suggest the old viewmaster style 3Dness.
Speaking of that kind of thing, Crayola has an interesting gimmick I saw when I was looking to buy sidewalk chalk for my "Feynamn Diagram" costume -- at first I thought the gimmick was that the glasses had divergent angles, making everything a bit "wall-eyed" and thus providing a different view of everything, but judging by that page, it must be some prismatic effect that bends certain colors more than others.

"Habit converts luxurious enjoyments into dull and daily necessities."

"Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -- in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil..."
--Robert Heinlein. Not sure if I buy it or not but it has a nice ring to it.
I'm not sure what the staff just sang at Chili's but I think it might've been "happy happy birthday / you know we're all excited / we'd like to sing the real song / but it might be copyrighted"
