More Fun With Optical Illusions-Skulls

Photobucket

An optical illusion (also called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a percept that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source.

There are three main types, literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological ones that are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type (brightness, tilt, color, movement) and cognitive illusions where the eye and brain make unconscious inferences. They are also known as "mind games."

Not only are these cleverly drawn, they are beautiful in their own way.

Can you see all the skulls? There are more than one in the picture above.

The artists are so creative aren't they? I’m not sure which are my favorites because I like them all.

I really like the variety of these images. We are just looking at skulls but there are so many different kinds of them.

Even the skies get into the act with an astro skull. I think the skull in the picture below is made out of different kinds of containers.

Optical Illusions have always fascinated me. I have collected all kinds of them over the years. If you are interested I have been saving them on my Photobucket account. Take a gander if you want to, I am sharing them with the public and you can copy them if you wish the codes are up there.

Happy New Year My Friends

 photo nyears11.gif
It’s been a long year but it’s finally time to celebrate a clean start in 2012.
The last 2 years were really hard for me and full of problems but I’m glad for the new chance this year!
I haven’t started mine yet but how many of you have started your list of New Year resolutions?
It’s an easy thing to do until you find yourself staring at a blank page, waiting to come up with something.
According to Forbes 44 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. The problem begins when you make resolutions that are unattainable in the first place. Don’t pick things that will set you up to fail. The right resolutions can make a huge difference in boosting happiness in your New Year.

The US Government (of all people) has provided a list of “Popular New Year's Resolutions”. They say that these are popular year after year. Need some help achieving these goals? Just click on the links for extra information.

Funny New Years Resolutions-I will……
  • Start washing my hands after I use the restroom.
  • Stop licking frozen flag poles.
  • Only get divorced and remarried once this year.
  • Watch more movie remakes.
  • Go back to school to avoid paying my student loans.
  • Only eat the white snow.
  • Keep it to myself that I have trouble with authority when I'm being interviewed.
  • Spend less than $1825 for coffee at Starbucks this year.
  • Claim all my pets as dependents on my taxes.
  • Start a blog about how I would write more often if I had something important to write. Only make one blog entry and leave it published for years.
  • Talk with a robot voice all the time.
  • Start using Facebook for something other than Farmville and stupid quizzes.
  • Start smoking to lose weight.
  • Switch my username to “password” and my password to “username” to make each a lot harder for hackers to figure out.


It’s easy to find e-cards on the internet but I’m finding that more and more of the sites I used to use where you can put yourself in the card and embed them in your blog are disappearing quickly. I prefer embedding them to providing a link, but it’s the thought that counts. 

      
Pictures of friends in my Network from Windows Live and Facebook. Sending my love for New Year!


I wrote a poem for you this year it’s silly but I hope you like it. I just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed hanging out with you all on Window’s Live and I hope we all stay in touch. Enjoy!
