50 Incredible Photos That Will Make You Do A Double-Take

Published

on

Perfect eyesight or not, it’s always fun to browse photos that bring interesting optical illusions. We go beyond images that prompt debates on a certain object’s true color and study the fascinating result of good lighting, perfect timing, and a whole lot of imagination. There’s nothing quite like looking through images that make you look twice as long and twice as hard. Check out these images which are all equally stunning and mind boggling.

Flaming or festive?

Nope, nothing is on fire and that’s not thick smoke rising from the ground. Those are actually pretty, snow-covered trees dressed up with Christmas lights! Reddit user alexandrosdimo spotted these on a trip to Snowshoe Mountain. But doesn’t the first glance make you want to cover your nose and give the fire department a call? Incredible.

An aerial shot of Whoville

Totally kidding, but doesn’t this “bird’s eye view” of a fence post look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book? Or another stage in Jumanji, if that’s more your thing? You can definitely add magic to something as mundane as a dirty old fence post by reimagining it as a strange new world with thousands of undiscovered species. Definitely puts meaning to “there’s more than meets the eye”!

A closer look at Saturn

If only, right? Photographer Francisco Sojuel was fortunate to have come across such a sight. A thin, cirrostratus cloud was in the right place at the right time, giving the illusion of the ringed planet appearing beautifully against the night sky. Makes you appreciate stepping out more and just marveling at the heavens, doesn’t it?

This is what standing on the edge of a cliff looks like.

If you don’t scrutinize the photo, that is. But then again, using one’s imagination is a thousand times better isn’t it? Because believe it or not, this is actually just a puddle! Amazing what you can capture with the right lighting and angle.

Baby Got… Bag?

If the only thing you see on this photo is a Nintendo DS bag, good for you. But if the first thing (or the only thing) you see is a butt, don’t worry. You’re not alone and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you. Or us, for that matter.

I’m never eating red potatoes again.

If they look like this, that is. This tiny red potato definitely looks like the human heart. You just can’t unsee it. And since it looks like anything but a vegetable, there’s suddenly something quite unsettling about the way the person is just casually holding it up for the camera, isn’t there?

It’s not a nebula, is it?

Without meaning to burst your bubble, this stunning image isn’t of anything in outer space at all. It’s just plain old car wash foam. But then again, after seeing this photo, you won’t see anything plain about car wash foam ever again. No wonder some kids and adults like trips to the car wash so much.

Palette or painting?

It looks like the kind of artwork in a museum that would make you stop and stare, doesn’t it? Reddit user pearcechris chanced upon this area for landscaping supplies and ended up with a stunning photograph that resembles a modern abstract piece.

Fingers don’t belong in fruit bowls…

Thank goodness this is just a cut up piece of ginger! But it’s definitely something that’ll make you jerk your hand back. In all honesty though, I still wouldn’t reach for a banana just like that, not when there’s something resembling a severed finger in there.

Cartel war damage or car park ceiling reflection?

It’s undoubtedly the latter but it does look like a scene straight out of Narcos. The red ceiling of the hospital parking garage was simply reflected on the water. But since we’re big on imagining things, let’s go ahead and ask why the “bloody” water seems to be trailing from the cars parked alongside each other.

There’s someone on the foot of the bed.

It’s an old man, hunched over, with a blanket around his shoulders. Horror movie buffs couldn’t help but comment on the possibilities that could follow: “I’m just waiting for the head to slowly turn around and look back at me with mouth agape in a low groan and dead, black eyes.” But if you look closely, you’ll be relieved to know that it’s just a man’s knee with a blanket thrown over it.

The beginnings of Greyscale

No, this person isn’t turning into one of the Stone Men, nor will she be advised to just “cut off her arm”, as an Archmaester once suggested to Ser Jorah Mormont. This is simply bits of dried clay arranged on a person’s hand. But we’d much rather believe a bit of Game of Thrones can be incorporated into our reality, so Greyscale it is.

Extraterrestrial being or Van Gogh masterpiece?

Neither. It’s a tree stump with an oddly fascinating pattern – one that most Reddit users swear reminds them exactly of The Starry Night. Still, there are some who liken it to a Sci-fi creature, something that could appear in Stranger Things. But since there’s no limit to what one can imagine, go ahead and decide just what you want this tree stump to be.

Be still, my beet-ing heart.

Here we have another root vegetable that decided to take on the form of a human heart, like the tiny red potato you saw earlier. This doesn’t look as shiny and, well, alive as the previous one though. I’d take this giant beet over that tiny red potato any day, honestly.

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take

Published

on

It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

62. Gender Stereotypes

In Girls’ Life magazine, all they talk about is hair, fashion, and beauty. In Boy’s Life magazine, it’s more about career planning and science. It’s certainly a big difference.

63. Star Gazing

“Whenever somebody posts a photo of the Milky Way, people invariably ask ‘is that how you see it with the naked eye?’. Here’s a representation of what you do see compared to what comes out of the camera,” the photographer explains. The moral of the story is that the night sky is best viewed in person!

It’s hard to fathom how big the earth is, but this image does a great job at providing some points of reference. It shows all of the earth’s water and air condensed into balls and placed next to our giant planet.

This one is a comparison between a Tyrannosaurus Rex foot and an emu foot. The dinosaur’s foot is a lot bigger, but structurally, they look about the same. Birds are closely related to the ancient reptiles.

The set of stairs that is crumbling was built out of stones in 1829. The nicer set was built in 2005 from cement. We can clearly see how things have changed over time.

Dad Brings Laughter With Tutorial On How To Put Baby To Sleep

Published

on

He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

Source: Youtube Screenshot

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Source: Youtube Screenshot

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing

Published

on

The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
