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.

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

Posted By: on August 7, 2011

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Has the standard practice of looking for a job for the summer been replaced by Xbox and Facebook?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?
