Magic Eye

Remember those things from like 1993? The pictures that look like a bunch of spots but you stare at it and slowly a 3d picture emerges? Well, I can’t see them. Okay, I CAN see them sometimes, but it takes a really really really long time. Let me just offer a word of advice for those of you who can see them easily: don’t offer suggestions to those who can’t. We all know how to do it, it’s just getting our eyes & brains to cooperate that’s the problem.

“Don’t focus on it”
“Look past it”
“Look at the reflection on the page”
“Hold it close to your face, then move it slowly away”

Not. Helpful.

If you really want to help, don’t stare at the picture over our shoulder and say “Wow, you really can’t see it?”
