Shiz sent this in to me a while ago, and I forgot to post it Embarassed before stumbling across it again. Some of you may have seen it before, but if you haven't your job is to count how many people there are, wait until the picture changes and then count how many there are again. Very clever. Smile

There are 9 people in this drawing, I managed to get 8 of them without help. A lot of them are very subtle, amazing picture though.

Found them, but...

can't believe I spent so long staring at a dead dog's bottom hoping to see a face in there somewhere!

Dammit, I must have been sat there watching that picture change over a dozen times now, and I still haven't the faintest idea how it works. Confused You sure know how to make a guy waste his time, don't you? Razz

Oh, and hyperbit, I can only see 4 people in your picture. Well, 2 people and 2 heads Embarassed

There are twelve tops of people, and twelve bottoms of people.
When they line up there are twelve people.
When they don't line up, one person loses the top of their hair, another the bottom of their shoes, it creates a thirteenth person. Really there are eleven whole people and two "half" people, but since the "halves" are 98%, it makes a great illusion!
