    My favorite one was downloadable one from eBaumsWorld, but they took it off a long time ago.

    I really like the flashy swirl one. I look at something in my room and I'm like OMG A WORMHOLE

    I like the ones with colour contrast. Where by putting colours next to each other you see different colours where they are none.

    Example: [​IMG]


    How many different colours are in that picture?

    Only two colours in that picture. But you see more. Magic!

    Smartass, but white is achromatic as it has no hue. Mhuaha. I win. [​IMG]

    edit: this one is creepy on paper I think. Cause it seems like it came alive..or something.

    Which color is lighter, that of tile A or B?

    [​IMG]

    Believe it or not, but both tile A and B have the exact same color! Check the color values with your favourite image editing software.

    Not a postable one but hold your forefingers together before moving them slightly apart.
    Focus on the background.

    yeah the sausage thing, that was cool
    I went through all of michael bach's site, there are some amazing ones really!
    the one posted above with the A & B grey tiles amazed me... I compared the hex value and actually they were a little bit different [​IMG] one was #CECECE (206, 206, 206) and the other was #D0D0D0 (208, 208, 208) ...
    but when you actually put both colours together you can't see the difference at all.

    The colors are identical though, you may have measured one of the JPEG artifacts. [​IMG]

    By far my most favorite one: Click.
    When I first saw it I nearly exploded [​IMG]

    And that A+B one is very cool..can't believe they're really different colors.

    I nearly wanted to stab my eyes out to MAKE THEM STOP MOVING. But I was able to keep all of them still except for one circle >_> Do you have the article explaining why these circles move?
