    Maybe any grid counters can tell how is that possible? 😯
    I nearly broke my head thinking 😀

    Oh my God, you are not serious. Are you?

    It’s all about switching the red for green pie. The yellow piece fits no matter what. The space is due to switching the red and green pie 🙂

    dbal knows all about pie

    ha ha. optical illusion. im sure ive seen that before.

    answer: you have a bent hypotenuse
    (3 / 8 = 0.375, 2 / 5 = 0.4)
    take a ruler (im sure vitos has one ; ), rest it a along your longest edge

    ps:
    this is cool : http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/

    What LD said…
    Nice example of the limits of perception.

    Hmm if you use a protractor you can see that the answer is found in the link that LD posted

    “The green 3×5 and the red 3×8 triangles have a slightly different angle. So the upper oblique line has a kink, either down or up. The difference in total area makes up for the square.”

    Just so happens I have a protractor. 😀

    Of course this was not so much of a mystery…

    As far as it is only one small piece making difference.

    Where the true magic begins, is the government managing to spend the budget so that despite it is only one small piece of outcome, and the most part of it is gone, it is looking all the same… Ha, you can look, measure, weigh but wont find where the difference goes, and there is no such eye, ruler or protractor that can help you.

    I believe that physics black-hole phenomenon is involved in it somehow. The proof to this theory is that when somebody tries really hard to discover where the most disappears, he disappears too…

    you make more sense than peanutsrevenge, at least

    made this one a while back:

    squares b5 and c3 are identical shades of grey. (posted it before, but its still cool)

    ps:
    to my eye, the long edge obviously has a kink

    Uh, why are you talking about kinks in the triangles.

    Its the relationship between Triangles and rectangles that has created the hole.

    Clearly that space is your final frontier.

    could you dumb it down a shade?

    no, its the relationship between side to side squares and up and down squares. i think they call it a ‘gradient’. heh heh, ‘rate of inclination’

    and how does that relate to my cool squares picture? im pretty sure it doesnt

    why was i emailed about this?

    It is cool,this one gets my empty speeddial slot.
    I have had an interest in illusions and perception for a long time, if you got any more interesting links or stuff ,don`t hold back.
