Since we can post images and stuff, I thought I might try posting some of these; I love optical illusions. Check out this first one:



It may seem like the Tower on the right is leaning more, but the two photos are actually identical. Weird!

Hmmm....that IS weird. I loved those "magic eye" pics that were popular years ago where if you stared at it long enough and got your eyes out of focus just right, you would see an image in them. They drove my wife crazy because she never could see it, but I could.

Those were great. One day, a particular mischievious friend of mine decided to get one for me, as a birthday present - in the form of a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. It must've taken me SIX EFFING MONTHS to put the damned thing together...

Wow, that's weird! My intellect told me they were the same even before I read that they were, but I had to really look to prove to my eyes that my intellect was correct!

I love optical illusions too. There are many works out there, but one of my favs is M.C. Escher.

I have always loved Escher too. It's amazing how cleverly he hides the trick part of the print. But I could NEVER figure out those "magic eye" pics!

Much love,
Larry

Heck, I never did get those blooming things to work for me. I could stare at them till the cows came home and only see a blurry mess!

OK, here's another one for you:



You'll notice the "angry face" on the left and the calm face on the right. Now, stand up, and walk about ten feet or so away from the computer, and look at them again. They've traded places!
