Some Fun Optical Illusions
on: August 05, 2007, 08:12:12 PM
I think this is a fun site. I love optical illusions, and this one has some good ones. The color perception tricks really mess with your head. My favorite is the Pinwheel illusion, it's pretty creepy!

Check it out if you like illusions:

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

I don't get it, why does it look uphill? Have you been there?

Yeah, that ones great. The colors/words mismatch thing is really fun to have someone else read, then watch as they get more frustrated each time they try it! It's really hard for me, I have to read it like a kindergardener!  :-[

No one actually gets it- that's part of the mystery!

There have been many theories over the years about it- some say it's perspective and that all the trees are leaning a certain way but that seems a little too far fetched.  Why would every tree in the area just happen to lean one way?  The original theory was that the hill was magnetic and that's why cars rolled up it, and that's how it got it's name.

I've driven past it a few times, but I don't think I have ever been there.
