Messin' With Your Mind...!


I know that I've been avoiding the issue, but it's time for me to come clean!

I'm a little crazy! Some would say that I'm more than a little crazy, but I'd rather think that a little is good enough.

These illusions are just to make your mind work a little better this morning, to sort of help get you ready for this weekend!

First, the Spinning Spiral... which is a static jpeg and there's no animation taking place, but if you move your eyes to look in any direction or blink, then the spiral spins.


The two orange circles are exactly the same size; however, the one on the left seems smaller. This is known as the Ebbinghaus Illusion. Cool, huh?


The QR Code Illusion... sort of. It's not a QR code, but look at at the "shimmering" in this image:


Now if your head is all messed up, maybe you are better prepared for the next couple of days! Be of good cheer, my friends! It's almost over...at least the crazy part is!

Oh, by the way...I got these illusions from RelativelyInteresting.com. You should go over and check them out!

How about we have our coffee in the kitchen this morning? It's still damp out on the patio!

I do like these mind messer's :-) It is amazing how our eyes and brain can fool us that way :-)

Tomorrow is our big day, that's when the Yule Gnome (our Santa) come and visit all the children :-)

Have a great day!

Hey cool and no drugs used. Maybe you can beat the Mexican Drug Lords at their own game. Charge people to get nuts. ;)

Some mornings I should only click on your site after the second cup of coffee.

Cool illusions.

Well, I just hope you're happy now!!! Screwed with my mind so bad I had a flashback.
Thought I saw a naked cowgirl floatin' across the ceiling!

Phelan said...

Very cool. Will have to show the boys. However I need coffee first.

I love illusions, and those are good ones, especially the last one.

JOJO said...

Just what I need something to make me even more dizzy. Those are neet something like they use in an eye test. Maybe thats where they get some of those tests from.
I would drink coffee with you anywhere.

Hey Rob...
Not only that, but it's a lot cheaper also! As we all know, I like cheap!

You have a great day and thanks for coming by!


Hey Sixbears...
Just never know what surprises may be in store here!

Coffee does help! Believe me!

Thanks for the visit this morning!


Hey Ben...
Could have been a lot worse, I reckon! Just lie back and enjoy the cowgirl!

Have a great day, buddy, and thanks for coming by!


Hey Phelan...
Coffee will certainly help on these!

Hope the boys enjoy them!

Thanks for the visit today!


Hey Dizzy...
Does sort of rattle the ol' cobwebs, doesn't it?

Nothing like a little strangeness first thing in the day!

Thanks for coming by, my friend!


Hey JoJo...
I appreciate you letting me mess with your head this morning!

Thanks so much, sweetie, for dropping in today!
