Are you trying to tell me that I AM calm?!

Barb of Righty in a Lefty State has a link to three pictures that the less stressed you are the less they move. I sat there and stared at all three for over 5 minutes each and not a damn movement was scene by me. I don't know what the hell she is talking about. If any of you want to believe that I 'm not a stressed out individual then be my guest.

Actually I'd have to agree with you. I learned some very good stress coping techniques years ago and I do them second nature now. And no matter what people tell you, it's not drinking! Stupid friends all spreading the truth misinformation about me.

But seriously try as I might I saw no movement in those pictures. Go over and check it out and then tell me if you saw movement.

Teresa and I just did this while we were on the phone. Here's my theory - actually Teresa's but I'm commenting now! - the more stressed you are the more focused you tend to be on the one item. Me....I'm a pretty laid back kinda gal - those damn things were movin' a mile a minute. Teresa - hell SHE'S stressed right now and notin'. Not a movement.

Yeah - you both are crazy!!

These are pretty typical optical illusions - I've seen a lot of these.
What they have to do with stress though, I dono.

Those images were crawling like teems of maggots on four day old roadkill.

Grau, but your so high-strung I'm surprised a vein hasn't exploded out of your body!

Yep, moving all over.

If I concentrate, they don't move. If I let my eyes wander over the page there is a very slight movement.

I'd run right out and fulfill my destiny as a serial killer, but I'm suffering from major vertigo now; thanks a lot.

I find the variation in what everyone sees to be amazing .. Heh!

Graus - I see things crawl a good bit, but real slowly. I wonder how much our astigmatism is related?
