Japanese Indoor Beach

Ocean Dome has its own flame-spitting volcano, crushed white marble sand, and it also boasts the world's largest retractable roof, providing a permanently blue sky. Temperature, wind and humidity are closely controlled to provide an ultra-safe sea-side experience.

Every hour, the volcano erupts and the hi-tech wave machines start up, starting a few minutes of sanitised surfing. Entrance costs US$50, which seems especially expensive given that there is a free, natural beach only 300 metres away.

Imagine a beach where the sky is always blue, it's never too hot or cold, the water isn't filled with salt and pollution, and the surf is always perfect. Welcome to Ocean Dome, the world's only indoor beach.

Money Spider Art

The spider requires five bills: four for the legs, and one to wrap the body.

Start by rolling up four of the bills into tight tubes (as explained here), then fold each one in half end-to-end.
Then fold the remaining bill exactly in half lengthwise three times.
Now you have the pieces.

Take each of the four leg tubes and drape them over the flat folded bill near the end. As shown, leave a little bit hanging out the end, as seen to the left in the picture.

This is a close-up of the four legs draped over the flat folded bill. While holding the leg ends tightly together, tightly wrap the flat bill around the whole thing one and a half times.

This picture shows the flat bill wrapping over and trapping the end poking out from the left on the picture above. Make sure that this wrap is very tight, that the legs are squeezed tightly together, or you won't be able to make the body stay together (described later).

This is a pretty good, tight wrap. If it doesn't look like this, don't continue. Work on it until it is solidly tight.

Making sure to hold the wrap tightly closed, turn the whole thing over in your hands. While squeezing the side tightly together, kink each of the legs outward, four on each side.

Fold a ninety degree turn into the flap over the end, and then fold the remainder down between the split legs. (Just look at the picture.)

After going between the legs (top of this picture), wrap the flap around the other end and around under.

Okay, this is a rotten picture, but... Take the remainder of the tab (bottom of previous picture, middle-to-right this picture), and tuck it between the legs and the outer wrap on the side that the outer wrap is only one deep.

If all has gone well up to now, the body will hold itself together based on the previous step. For each of the eight legs, bend back toward the body.

There are two keys to having it look nice and stay together
