If a man makes a statement, and there's no woman in earshot to hear it, is he still wrong?

Me - I am always right.....just misunderstood.

Having posted this in Mondie's speaker thread I realise that it is also a pretty good choice for my favourite optical illusion. From one of my favourite contemporary artists, Mark Wallinger, this has been exhibited quite a few times, but this is how I remember it looking when I saw it in the Whitechapel Gallery about 20 years ago.

Not sure if it qualifies, but the Holbein painting with the skull

I wonder how many people have accidentally driven into one of these?!

One does not need to be painted thus to be invisible; ask me how I know! 😅😅😅

Is this cat going Up or Down stairs?

Cat up or down stairs

Too easy - just look at the construction of the treads. Cat is going downstairs.

If it's anything like my cat (currently sleeping on my lap while I listen to music) the cat will be stationary and the stairs moving. Regards Andrew

I'm also tempted to say downstairs, but based upon the cat's tail. When mine goes upstairs her tail is down rather than up. I assume they feel more of a need to 'balance' when descending?

Thx. I didn't know if what appealed to me, was of general interest to anyone else.

Have an  couple of optical illusions on me:

Not sure it's my favourite but certainly frequent.  When I pass a mirror I see my dad. Regards Andrew
