It's An Illusion

I know I haven't been posting a whole lot of personal stuff recently, and guess what? The trend continues! I fly out to Seattle this weekend, and Cora and I will be buying our marriage license.


Now, wrap your brain around this one, borrowed from the Red Eye:

Optical Illusion Look at the squares labeled "A" & "B". Which square is darker?

Obviously, it's a trick question. That are the same color. But your brain will refuse to see it. Want proof? Link HERE. Haul the picture into your photo editing software, and sample them.

R-120, B-120, G-120.

My job is done. I'm out of here. Have a nice weekend, and I'll catch up with y'all next week.

It's waaaaayyyyy too early in the morning for my brain to be hurting like this!

Seriously though, when I cover the darker square between them with my finger, then A and B look exactly the same. But as soon as I pull my finger away, they look different again. Bizarre.

Hope your weekend isn't an illusion; have fun!!!!

Cora, now YOU'RE hurting my head! I tried the covering up thing and I don't see any difference. I'm going back to bed.

Both of the squares look plaid to me. Does that mean I am insane? Wait, let me check my dipstick...

At no time is it a good time to stump the JenJen.
I have now decided to refer to myself in the third person.

I'm just going to enter denial here. It's far too late to be trying this kind of thing, let alone fussing about in The Gimp.

yeah, it would have been good to see you, but you know Mother's Day Weekend with two mom's to cater to and one who won't commit to anything.
