    If it's a white pig, please take into account that you are probably looking at a huge seagull, not a pig! :Do_O

    And if it's a brown pig with a tiny handbag attached, also not a pig unfortunately. That's a squirrel practicing parachuting. :cool:

    Finally, if it's a round, black and white pig, then it's probably a soccer ball coming at your direction. Duck! :eek:

    And many thanks for the link, just read the article. I love that Chau, who is an "an optical engineer at the University of British Columbia", looked at that and said "It’s really cool". That truly made me smile - since it shows how much he still loves his profession.

    Fun fact about Chau, he also justified how you see my profile picture. "Humans are always looking for new and different ways to produce artificial color". :D:p

    And, finally, that article truly made me feel the dumberest. It says "the effect can be demonstrated and most easily explained in a much simpler system" and then:

    "Water droplets that condense and hang from the underside of the lid of a petri dish" - ok, I'm still following.
    "Light waves" - hmmm, oh boy.
    "Entering near one edge of a droplet can bounce two or more times off the dome of the droplet before emerging near the other edge" - o_O
    "However, the light waves entering at slightly different distances from the center of the droplet can bounce different numbers of times" - Just nodding and writing "fascinating" this point.

    Mhmm, fascinating article. ;)

    @Zach X. wish I too could have one jar of happiness rn...
    The place where I study in India has extended it's vacation by 2 weeks due to the COVID-19 outbreak and hence most students left while I can't go home because many cases near my hometown, it's safer in my on-campus hostel.
    But what's sad is, today is my birthday and noone around to talk to or treat with. :((

    Manchester UK suburb, called Oldham. We have cases in my local Dr's practice. But so far very few and my family seem ok both here and in Oxford where my wider family are.

    I am sure that will all change, I just hope my 91 yo mum don't get it.
