Amanda Gould emailed me very original question today: “Hy Vurdlak! Christmas is near, and I would love to present original gifts to my beloved ones. What kind of optical illusion present can you suggest? I believe this would be pretty original idea if you made some kind of list of original illusion and no-illusion holly day presents. Thank you Sir!”

I browsed amazon for a while, and compiled a list of 10 best Christmas Gifts for your beloved ones, or yourself.

    If you read above, the request was for Vurdlak to submit Illusions and Non-illusions/ideas for Great Christmas gifts… In other words not all of what he posted will be an Optical Illusion….

    They sell traditional katanas on amazon?

    thats atrocious, some sick weirdo serial killer could easily buy one. it wasnt long ago there was something in the paper about someone who was killed with a samarai sword which the killer had bought of ebay!

  6. Anonymous says:

    So Lee, what you’re saying is that if Amazon doesn’t carry the kitanas, then aspiring serial killers could pick them up on ebay instead?

    i think lee is a little paranoid……… @(O.O)@

    You know, It’s not like Amazon or EBAY are expediating serial killers. There are catalogs for all kinds of weapons out there, and it’s not like a sword is the only way to kill somebody.

    Anyway, the hologram machine is really cool, but the shock game is kinda creepy.

    i dont think the katana was real. it might not be that sharp. kind of like a letter opener. looks like a dagger but isnt sharp.

  10. Anonymous says:

    How did everyone get off into serial killers. I have played the shock game and the shock is like a mild zing in your hand.

    *sarcasm* Oh, how HORRIBLE! Amazon and Ebay are selling sharp weapons! If they didn’t sell nice sharp weapons that at least kill quickly with very little pain, then murderers would have to kill people with dull objects that hurt ten times more and you die slowly!

    People, if someone is going to kill you, then they will kill you, whether with a sharp weapon from online or a dull object from around the house. Stop freaking out.

    what’s the point of spamming a board like this?

  17. Vanopelli says:

    Hey, Anonymous, I have a “Mirage Hologram”, and while it is not tecnically a hologram, it creates a very real looking projection of whatever is placed inside, and fascinates all who see it for the first time. Go back to your small humorless world and let the rest of us be delighted by the simple things in life.
