Best optical illusion of '09

Posted May 22, 2009

Ladies and gentlemen, friends and neighbors, I present to you the winner of the Fifth Annual Best Visual Illusion of the Year contest: The break of the curveball.

When it says "shift your gaze" in step 3, they mean, "While looking directly at the blue point, notice the motion of the spinning disk in your peripheral vision."

Look in the lefthand column to see some the finalists and kill even more time this Friday.

I'll see you cats Tuesday.
