    Ok, ok, here`s a free sample. No link clickage required.

    "Zen Fluid Dynamics.
    Sit in a sunbeam in a dimly-lit room. Light a stick of incense, hold it vertically, then move it upwards and stop suddenly, with a jerk. A perfect smoke-ring will be launched from the burning tip. Move the incense upwards, then suddenly jerk downwards, then repeat. You can launch fast smoke-rings through the center of slow ones, create side-by side rows, etc. In a draft-free room they persist for ages, and soon the air will be full of huge grey thin circles. Contemplate the silent Chaos. "

    theres a thing about cutting a grape almost in half with just a little bit of the skin connecting it then you put it in the microwave... i did that and it entertained me for a long time.
