Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Verbal Illusions

Below are 4 annoying questions, at least I consider them annoying because I fell into every trap! These are from an E-mail message that's making the rounds, so you may have seen them before.

Answer the questions instantly. You can't take your time. It's fun.

No pencil or paper! OK? Ready? ... GO!!!

FIRST QUESTION: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?


To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question. (You know you took too much time.)

If you overtake the last person, then you are...?


THIRD QUESTION: Very tricky math! Note This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 30.

Add another 1000.

Now add 20.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 10.

What is the total?


LAST QUESTION: Mary's father has five daughters Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

I tried the first two.
In both cases you'd still be first.
In first case, you would lap the person in second position so that he is 1 lap down.
In second case too, the last person is lapped and he is one lap down behind the leader.
