    T-Rex is awesome!

    I've always liked this one:

    Which way is she twirling? CW or CCW?

    Is this a trick question or does it really confuse people?

    I like the way it switches direction.

    Oh, and clearly she's cold.

    Hawg, if you stare to the right of the picture about three inches, and don't blink, you may be surprised at what happens! And yeah, she's cold.Let's put it this way: let's see if there are any disagreements about which way she's twirling!

    ^^ Nice one. These things just demonstrate that you can't always rely on what your eyes are showing you to be absolute.

    I could give a rats (Y) what direction she's twirling, I just want to stop her and hold her.

    If I get her to stop do you think she'll let me hold her.

    She changes direction about every 25-30 seconds. Or is that just flashbacks from past mushroom trips?

    Is anybody gonna offer her some clothing? She's still cold.

    This one is easy to explain. It's positioned on an uneven surface but you can't see that because it's blacked out.

    This one is really tough, but if you stare long enough, there is actually a letter "B" in the skyline.(this illusion only works on men, and certain women)
