Lesson for the week

I was very quiet for the past few days because I was trying to catch up with my reading. Time to share it with you…

Read out loud the text inside the triangle below.


More than likely you said, “A bird in the bush,” and……..

if this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see that the word THE is repeated twice!
Sorry, look again.

Next, let’s play with some words.

What do you see?


In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL (inside each black letter is a white letter). It’s all very physiological too, because it visualizes the concept that good can’t exist without evil (or the absence of good is evil).

Now, what do you see?


You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion. Look again! Can you see why this painting is called an optical illusion?

What do you see here?


This one is quite tricky!

The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

Last one.

What do you see?


You probably read the word ME in brown, but……. when you look through ME you will see YOU!

It’s not what you see, it’s the way that you see it!

  1. I love these things but I’m afraid I’m in the 95% who fall for them and can’t see past the first bits . . . prolly why I hate matching patterns and sequences in intelligence tests. I get distracted looking at the ‘whole’ . . . guess I’m a ‘big picture’ type with no eye for detail.

  2. I got them all except the first one, and can’t quite believe that I didn’t see it!! These things are cool. My eyes hurt now, though! 🙂

  3. Here’s a good one for you, GM.

    Count every F in the following statement.



    How many Fs did you count?

    There are six. Go ahead, count them again.

    The brain cannot process the word OF . Anyone who counts six Fs the first time is a genius……. Most people say Three.

  4. I’ve seen these before….and Nancy’s too…but I love this kind of stuff. I can never get enough of these little optical illusion mind teasers. Thanks Grannymar.

  5. Well done girls for trying but where are the boys? I hope they are not struggling.

    I love these puzzles some of which I get immediately while others elude me altogether.
