Your Friday Smile!

A father asked his 10-year old son if he knew about the birds and the bees.

"I don't want to know," the child said, bursting into tears. "Promise me you won't tell me."

Confused, the father asked what was wrong.

The boy sobbed, "When I was six, I got the 'There's no Easter Bunny' speech.
At seven, I got the 'There's no Tooth Fairy' speech.
When I was eight, you hit me with the 'There's no Santa' speech.
If you're going to tell me that grown-ups don't really get laid, I'll have nothing left to live for."

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."
A. Einstein

This has to be the best illusion ever created.



If you look at the above images from your seat in front of the computer, Mr. Angry is on the left, and Ms. Calm is on the right.

Get up from your seat, and move back 12 feet, and PRESTO!! They switch places!!

It is said this illusion was created by Phillippe G.Schyns and Aude Oliva of the University of Glasgow

Does this prove that we sometimes may not be seeing what's actually there?

Have a great weekend!
P.S. Don't forget to tell me your birth date (here)!

How the hell did they do that?

I just walked up and back until I found the exact point at which they switch, but I still can't figure out WHY.

Neato.
