Mind Benders

                                 Pretty Cool

(Don't ask me! I don't know how it's done!!)


Read out loud the text inside the triangle below.

More than likely you said, 'A bird in the bush,'! And. ........
If this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see
That the word THE is repeated twice!
Sorry, look again.

Next, let's play with some words.
What do you see? 

In black you can read the word GOOD, 
in white the word EVIL 
(inside each black letter is a white letter). 

Now, what do you see?

You may not see it at first, 
but the white spaces read the word optical, 
the blue landscape reads the word illusion. 
Look again! 
Can you see why this painting is called an optical illusion?

What do you see here?

This one is quite tricky!
The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

Last one.
What do you see?
You probably read the word ME in brown, but.......
When you look through ME you will see YOU!
Do you need to look again? Test Your Brain

This is really cool. The second one is amazing so please read all the way though. 

Count every 'F' in the following text:


WRONG, THERE ARE 6-- no joke.
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.
The reasoning behind is further down.
The brain cannot process 'OF'.

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 'F's' on the first go is a genius. 
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Look at the spinning woman 
If she is turning right your right side of your brain is working. 
If she is turning left your left side of your brain is working. 
If she turns both ways for you then you have a 160 or better IQ

Ok, so I checked online to see if this is real - 
here's a couple of web sites if you're interested in more info:

The first picture and the last should be moving.
If they are not, please leave me a message telling me so.
For some reason, sometimes they stop.

More Brain Stuff . . . From Cambridge University. 

Olny srmat poelpe can raed tihs.  

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht 
I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, 
aoccdrnig  to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy.

It deosn't

Mind Tricks

These are very interesting -

Is the man looking at you or to the side?

Is this possible??

 Focus on the dot in the Centre and move your head backwards and forwards.
             Weird Hey . . .

Is this possible?

Are the purple lines strait or bent?
(Look at the picture sideways)

No explaining this one . . . just look at the pic!!
Are they really moving or just an illusion?

Do you see the gray areas in between the squares?

You should see a man's face and also a word . . .
    Hint:  Try tilting your head to the right, the word begins with "L".

 If you take a look at the following picture, let me tell you ... it is not animated. Your eyes are making it move. To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving. Or look at the black center of each cir cle and it will stop moving. But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous?one?will move after you take your eyes away from itWeird ? 


If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot,
the dots will remain only one color, pink.
However if you stare at the black ' + ' in the center,
the moving dot turns to green.
Now, concentrate on the black ' + ' in the center of the picture.
After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear,
and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.
It 's amazing how our brain works.
There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. 
This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.

Current Events Test

I got 11 right – I scored better than 74% of the public.  Now you try it.
This is a terrific test. And it shows results in a number of ways. It sure indicates that the majority of Americans don't know what's going on. No wonder our politicians take such advantage. Interesting and simple test. It's astonishing that so many people got less than half right. These results say that 80% of the (voting) public doesn't have a clue and that's pretty scary. There are no tricks here - just a simple test to see if you are current on your information.

Test your knowledge with 13 questions, then be ready to shake your head when you see how others did.

Please note that the questions for this test changes from time to time to keep it

Australia Flooding, January 2011, Part 1

A dear friend who lives in Brisbane Australia sent these to me.
Click Here to see the link where these pictures (and more!) came from - all 163 pictures!

The Flood Waters Come Raging In . . .

It Rains and it Rains

Sometimes only the roof of the houses were all you could see . . .

And the animals needed help too . . .

The Flooding Continued . . .

Finally it stopped raining . . . but the water did it's damage.

The Aftermath . . .
