See here, makes for interesting reading. I do find that close-ups of objects (especially the old trick of a familiar object from an odd angle and carefully cropped) get more "what on earth is that?" comments, which imply that they make the viewer think about what they're seeing.

It's intermittent John, try again. I opened it once, then failed (503) a second time and it's worked twice since.

Direct other links.

That's odd, Slashdot is usually reliable. You can go straight to the original story here.
