Ceci n'est pas une spirale

This must be one of the most convincing optical illusion I have ever seen.

The image shows an optical illusion that has concentric circles with checker-board patterns between them.  The arrangement makes it look as if the circles make a spiral where in fact they are not.
Ceci n'est pas une spirale


Don't know where it originally came from, I found this optical illusion that looks like a spiral on Make's website . They also show a version traced by lines to help convince you that this really is NOT a spiral. :)

Unappetizing dietary supplement

The picture shows a store shelf with bottles of St. John's Wort extract, but the label on the shelf reads St. John's WART extract.
St. John's WART extract... yuck!


I don't care if he was a saint, I still don't want to ingest any extracts from his warts! :)

Really weird clouds

Sometimes reality is weirder than fiction. This is one of those cases.
If a painter would ever paint clouds this weird, everyone would think he had lost his mind or wonder what he had been drinking... and how much. Yet here they are, for real.

The picture shows a perfectly straight and uniform roll cloud which looks like a straight pipe in the sky stretching to the horizon.
Who put that big pipe in the sky?


The picture shows clouds over a cityscape that look like whipped cream was smeared across the sky.
Who has been smearing whipped cream in the sky?


The picture shows a cloud cover with bulges hanging out as if big drops of cloud are about to ooze out.
The clouds are oozing down!


Here is the awesome collection of weird clouds where I found these, there are many more there! Worth seeing!

The amazing invisible painter

The invisible painter has painted himself to blend in with the background of a ruined building.
Invisible painter by ruins


The invisible painter has painted himself to blend in standing in front of a front loader and it is really hard to spot him!
Invisible painter... where is he? Can you find him?


This is Liu Bolin, and if there ever would be an invisible man it would be him. He spends hours meticulously painting himself until he blends in with his chosen background like a chameleon. Amazing! Just the kind of weird stuff we like around here. :)

Since when do babies look like burritos?

Image shows a newspaper clipping with a police report that says:
MOUNTAIN VIEW
Friday
Wal-Mart: Police receive a report of a newborn infant found in a trash can. Upon investigation, officers discover it was only a burrito.
Since when do babies look like burritos?

This sums it all up...

Picture shows a street sign with nothing on it, next to the road in the middle of nowhere
Accurate (though slightly redundant) road sign
