Bullcrap. That's messed up. Like even after knowing it's an illusion I simply can't tell the difference without the rectangle drawn.

This one is cooler from a mind trip perspective. I like the neurological reasons behind it. They really go to show that we are really just machines/computers. Brilliantly engineered, but still...

It's 3 in the morning, don't you have anything better to do?

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I can tell by unfocusing my eyes. The color of the squares A and B appear the same. Not sure why that is.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
