I'm so happy I don't live in a plastic water bottle.

Looks like a nice place.. outside the bottle, that is.

It would be kind of cool to have an etherial void for a floor.

Yeah, but it'd be chilly in the winter.

I happen to live in a plastic water bottle and it's really not that bad.

Neat. I've tried to make my own QTVR panoramics with varying results. Anyone know of some good tutorials?

If you zoom in on the bottom of the bottle, you can see the back of a book in German. Anyone know what it is?

Yes, I'm a dork for wanting to know...

quip, I looked for the ISBN at Amazon. The book is called "Die Steinheilkunde - Ein Handbuch" (a handbook about healing stones); the author is called Michael Gienger. You can see the book here (site in German).

amf, aren't you the clever one! Very cool. I was just amazed that you could zoom in so close to things, but that book was the only item I could get a good reading off of (other than the water bottle on the desk).

Wait, does this mean Rachael is a replicant?

amf: you and your fancy ISBN search. I was reading the text. Yes, it is indeed about healing stones. From what I can make out through the bottle:

"...with which anyone can easily release the effects of each stone.

"In the second section of the book, the stones are introduced with pictures and text in alphabetical order."

Etc. Wow man.

Metafilter: Think inside the bottle.

If he was really cool, he would have photoshopped out the tear in the bottle where he put in the camera.

No, you see the tear represents man's inhumanity towards nature, showing the dialectic that inspires...

I got nothin.

I look at this picture and I get a St. Elsewhere--deja vu thing going on....
