It's only about a dozen so give it a try...

Make sure you have the sound on and loud enough to hear the comments!

Don't click on that link unless you don't mind be startled by a very loud noise after being fooled into thinking it's some sort of illusion game.

Its after illusion number 5, you get to see number six and then the big surprise. It does startle you.

That last illusion (before you get the crap scared out of you) actually is one of the best optical illusions. Go here to see it without any "interruptions":

http://www.verylowsodium.com/tripwonker.php

Its called a "trip wonker" and it really does work. The longer and more intently you stare, the better it works. Things really do look like they are warping when you look away from it. And no, this one wont scream at you. :wink:

I had a great interest in optical illusions when I was a kid. Lately, I was surprised to find a whole category of them that I had no idea about. Those are still pictures that appear to move as you move your eyes or head.

Here's one:

Thanks for the additional links, guys! Now I'm even happier I started this. For the "trip wonker" I suggest getting relatively close to the screen (maybe 20cm) because then a larger portion of your view will be effected an thus when you look somewhere else (e.g. your hand) the effect will be larger, too.
