    beautiful project, if this dosnt win the contest ill walk into central park and light meself on fire.


    Haha! Back in the day, when I was a copier repair dude, this was one of our school trouble shooting pranks. The tech almost always failed. I got the answer by accident. I went to unplug the copier before removing the glass. (A school requisite) By chance I looked into the paper tray and saw the image on the paper. Of course, I played it off like I figured it out. (of course) I bet you could even stump your friendly local tech. Just don't call him out for the prank, you will probably get charged for the call...
