Scary Optical Illusion

October 31, 2008 | By | 7 Replies More

I really do enjoy good optical illusions.  I’ve previously linked to this site, Mighty Optical Illusions, where you can find hundreds of well-crafted illusions.  It’s really worth a visit.

Because it’s Halloween, though, I decided to link to an illusion that involves something more–something terrifying (it startled me when I finally “got it”).   In fact, the site warns that young children should not view this illusion.

    Not funny.

    These scare images were not funny when first deployed – about 30seconds after the interweb was invented.

    I have had multiple heart problems, and these shockers really do get my inbuilt defribrillator humming……

    I hate being party pooper – but I hate these things more.

    Is this a "screamer"? ERICH!!!

    Screamers are pretty much the bane of my online existence. I am totally curious as to what this link will reveal, but I am too terrified of getting "jumped" to actually look. For shame!

    Erika: If I told you what it was, it would no longer be a surprise, would it?
