An Illusion So Impossible I Had To Double-Check in Photoshop

Posted By: on September 10, 2011

Sick IllusionMost optical illusions are cleverly placed but believable enough that once you get an explanation, you believe it. This one was so impossible, I had to pull the image into Photoshop just to double-check.

In the image below, the “blue” stripes and the “green” stripes are the exact same color, RGB 0-255-150. The pink and orange lines are the key to the illusion. The orange brings out a more brisk green than how the strips by themselves appear, while the pink stripes make the light green appear to be baby blue.

If you don’t have a headache yet from the visual, pull it into Photoshop and check it out yourself.

Nearly a month after the downgrade to the US credit rating, the knee-jerk reactions seem to be over but the long-term effects are just starting to warm up. What is this going to mean for investing? For jobs? For inflation?

Will GDP growth be hampered? What does it mean for us to be “under observation”? Who’s observing us? What are they seeing?

It doesn’t matter whether you’re handsome or ugly, skinny or large, blond, brunette, or ginger; you can improve your chances of getting the job by following a few simple rules in fashion.

Summer Job Searching on Decline (aka “those damn kids ain’t workin’ no more”)

Job Search

Has the standard practice of looking for a job for the summer been replaced by Xbox and Facebook? Is the economy simply too bad for temporary employment between school years to be a valid course of action?

Summer jobs are on the decline, and it’s not just the economy. Students aren’t looking like they used to. Since 1989, there has been a sharp decline in the number of 16-24-year-old people even looking for a job over the summer. Did we give up, or is there a problem with work ethic? Are parents spoiling kids, or are kids spoiling themselves?
