29 Optical Illusions That Will Leave You Scratching Your Head

By Mustafa Gatollari

 Every now and then, a photo is taken is taken at the perfect time and angle to create something both truly amazing and horrifying. Be it the old "is it a duck or a rabbit" illusion, or the classic "old lady or young woman in vanity," these kinds of magical occurrences are never not funny and amazing.

Below are some optical illusions will have you looking at an image over and over again as you try to figure out exactly what's going on... Some of these might make you think that Escher is still around and kicking today. There are few things that can make you feel truly dumb better than a clever optical illusion.

There's something about them that is so awfully addictive. You can't help but feel yourself inexplicably drawn to them, nearly banging your head against the table in an attempt to figure them out. It's incredibly frustrating.   

In fact, some of the images are so good, they don't even rely on crazy angles or pro photo tricks. The best optical illusions are the ones that appear so seamless, looking at them for extended periods of time is probably not recommended by doctors. 

But when you finally do arrive at the answer, it feels like a great weight's been lifted, and you can't help but pat yourself on the back for figuring out a uselessly fun riddle.
