    I don't have troubles with reading the words (probably cos I am not a native speaker) but I do have difficulties naming the colours.

    here's another

    What do you think?

    New Illusion - You'll love the new animated spots illusion.
    Illusion Instructions: Stare in the center of the circle of red spots. Crazy stuff starts to happen within one minute!

    disappearing spots illusion

    (stare at the center above image until many of the red spots completely disappear!)
    You'll notice several things:
    1) You'll immediately start to see a green afterimage where the spots are.
    2) What you will see next is amazing! More spots will seem to disappear!
    3) Stare long enough and all the spots will even disappear completely for a few moments!

    Color Blindness Test
    spiral eye trick illusion

    1 in 10 men has some degree of colorblindness. It is much less prevalent in women. But it's fun to take the tests anyway! You should pretty easily be able to see the number 10 in the image above, and for the image below, you'll see a different number. Of course, this could also mean that your monitor just sucks, but if you can't read the number, you may want to either adjust your monitor or go see an eye doctor!

    Optical Illusion Chalk Drawing - The Sidewalk Chalk Trap

    sidewalk optical illusion

    This is one of my favorite pictures here. Wow. Send this one to your friends!

    How would you like to be walking down the sidewalk and then suddenly fall into a hole like these guys? Take a little closer look at who has fallen into the hole. It's tough to tell but it looks like George W. Bush and Cheney have fallen into the hole.... and is that Tony Blair looking into the camera? Regardless, this sidewalk optical illusion is just downright incredible!

    If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink.
    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 of time,
    all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you're lucky!
    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.

    Another one worth revisting. Man o' man, these are incredible! (Scroll to the spinning dot ones, those are the amazing ones)

    Here's a good one: Stare at this for long enough and eventually you will see a huge pile of hot steaming bullshit.
