    Re: Three more the road.

    You are quick off the mark. Absolutely correct.

    Re: Three more the road.

    Correct, of course. Playing about with the graphic for Q3, predictably, I managed to lose a lot of the clarity which I think made the solution more obvious.

    Re: Three more the road.

    I like Q3. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Predictably, I approached it as the kind of thing they have in IQ tests, and didn't get anywhere until I did a step back (mentally) and looked at the picture as a whole.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Three more the road.

    As with all perception puzzles, once solved, you can never revert to the original mental state. Take the image below (hope it's not a repost, my memory is dodgy at the moment. If it is, please delete). If you can find the face in less than 3s, then you are supposed to be a right brain genius. Most people can do this within one minute. An art teacher colleague of mine managed it in 4 minutes! Modesty prevents me from disclosing that it took me 8s.

    Re: Three more the road.

    I believe this was posted here once before as a link... and it still took me about 2 seconds to find it... even though I knew what I was looking for. When I originally saw it though, I sent it to a few of my coworkers and drove them "nuts" for hours!! Good fun.
    have fun

    Re: Three more the road.

    I knew I'd got it from somewhere, but I was convinced it wasn't here. Sorry for the repost, but perhaps some new loungers will be intrigued.

    Re: Three more the road.

    That's neat. I don't recall seeing it before. Even while knowing what I was looking for, it took me several minutes to discover. I was looking for a larger image concealed within the picture...

    Re: Three more the road.

    The Puzzles forum had an expiration period of 90 days before we moved to the new server, so this one, which had indeed been posted here before, had long vanished. There will be a lot of Loungers who, like Tricky, haven't seen it before.
