Good morning all. It’s only Wednesday, and it’s already been an insanely long week! It seems like an impossible object sort of day.

I’m actually not sure what to call this impossible object illusion. It was just pretty cool and caught my eye…

This impossible object illusion looks like a table at first glance, for lack of a better description. A table with a giant square hole in the middle and legs that come out of the table, but a table nonetheless. Look again, though, and you’ll see something that doesn’t quite work. The back table leg and the front table leg are actually the same. It passes through the giant square hole in the middle of the table. None of this is possible, though, hence…impossible object.

If you like this illusion, make sure you give it a nice 5 star rating below!

After a long day, coming home to a candlelit dinner is pretty nice. Not that that happens these days, but still—it would be nice. I suppose I could light my own candles for dinner, but firing up some tea lights over a bowl of  Ramen noodles seems a bit pointless, no?

Heck! I’d even be happy with a candle optical illusion some days!

Actually, I’d be really happy with this candle optical illusion! Anyone who understands my love for optical illusions of all sorts would know that! This would definitely be a pretty cool addition to a dinner table. No more storing candlesticks or scraping off hard wax. No more polishing or purchasing expensive taper candles. Just plop a tea light on this candle optical illusion, light it, and you’re good to go!

Another Monday, another work week. Yee haw…

After a relaxing weekend, I’m sure y’all need a little something to get that brain in gear again. Today’s image is less of an optical illusion and more of a puzzle. A light switch puzzle to be exact.

Take a look at the image below. Believe it or not, there are only four wires in the jumbled mess you see here. Three of them have been cut, and only one of them is connected to the light bulb you see. Can you tell which wire will successfully turn on the light in this light switch puzzle?

It’s pretty tough on the eyes, but with a little patience, you should be able to figure it out. It didn’t take me long to find it, but I think I might have just gotten lucky and picked the right one off the bat, just hoping it would be the one. So, I know the answer, but I’m not telling. When you’ve solved this little light switch puzzle, leave your answer in the comments below.

Anyone get any snow yet? Here it is, the end of November, and we still haven’t gotten any snow. It’s crazy, I tell ya! At this time of year, we’re normally knee deep in it, but all I see now is green, green grass, dead trees, and mud. It’s gross, and I almost miss the snow. Almost.

Since I can’t have snow outside, I figured I can have a little snow here in the mornings. So, I found a fun dog in the snow illusion to bust your brain a bit…

It’s a giant dog in the snow illusion! This dog is so big that his handler can actually ride him!

Okay, so maybe that’s not entirely accurate, but it probably tricked your brain a bit at first. I know it did mine. The angle and timing of the photograph just makes it appear as though the man is riding the dog through the snow. Since the man is farther behind the dog in the background, he also looks smaller. To top it all off, the red color of the dog’s harness matches the red of the man’s jacket.

Good morning! I hope everyone out there is enjoying their weekend. I will later, but I have a ton of work to catch u on at the moment.

Today, I bring you a fun faces optical illusion. Take a look at it this faces optical illusion—how many faces do you see?

I don’t know about you, but I see three faces. The first face is the profile of a young woman wearing a hat. You can see that she’s looking to the left, and you can see her eye, nose, and chin on the left side of this faces optical illusion. The second face I saw was that of the older gentleman with a large nose. This man is looking to the right, and the big brown object at the bottom of this face illusion is a mustache. If you’re having trouble seeing this one, try covering the woman’s face.

After I found the two initial faces in this illusion, the third and final face caught my eye. This one’s a little harder to see than the other faces, for me at least. The nose on the third face is also the chin of the young woman. I think the third face also shares an eye with the second face.

And there you have it—three faces in one!

It’s been a long, long week, and with one more day to go before the weekend, my mind is almost shot. I’m looking forward to a couple of days to chill out and relax. Well, that’s not entirely true. I probably won’t be chilling or relaxing much this weekend, because I get to pack up the rest of my house. I’m moving—I sign the papers on the new house on Tuesday!

After peeking back on the recent posts on here, I realized that I haven’t put up a moving illusion lately. So, I figured what better way to round out the week than with a freaky movie illusion? Besides, a spinning illusion matches what’s going on in my head at this point…

This spinning illusion is definitely a little hard on the eyes. But, that’s what makes it such a neat illusion. You know that this moving illusion is’t really moving, though when you look at it, the circles seem to be rotating in opposite directions. Of course, this isn’t a moving image at all, just a clever moving illusion.

For today’s optical illusion, I have a dapper young fellow joining me. This young man is all dressed up, complete with a top hat. Unfortunately, this gentleman is a bit upset. You see, he asked his hatmaker to make him a top hat that was exactly as tall as it was wide. The young man has only one box to store his hat, and the box happens to be square. A hat taller or wider wouldn’t fit into the box properly and could get damaged in storage.

The hatmaker, however, insists that the hat is exactly as wide as it is tall, from brim to brim and top to bottom.

So, who’s right?

Is his top hat taller or wider?

Top Hat Illusion

It may first appear that the young man was upset for good reason. The hat actually does look taller than it is wide. Look again, though. And this time, measure it. The hatmaker made a hat that was spot on and is not either taller or wider. The hat only appears taller because the width of the top of the hat is narrower than the brim, which is much less conspicuous.

Don’t believe me? Check for yourself I used a photo editor on my computer to double check, but you can use a piece of paper or ruler to check.

In my Internet travels, I ran across a pretty neat hole optical illusion this morning. This hole optical illusion is nothing more than an ink drawing…

hole optical illusion

…but, it looks like the lines are actually a hole through the paper. It amazes me that this effect is created with nothing more than some lines and a  little shading!

Wanna see another related hole optical illusion? Of course you do!

This hole illusion is a little more disturbing, since it looks like the hole is going right through someone’s hand…

This hole through the hand would be really freaky if it was put there without your knowledge. Can you imagine waking up, for instance, and looking down to see a hole in your hand? Yikes! It would definitely be a fun way to mess with someone, though!
