Optical Illusions That'll Fool You Every Time!

No, you're not tired and no, you don't need to change your glasses - you're just about to experience some fun optical illusions that have nothing to do with fooling your eyes and everything to do with fooling your brain!

You see, our brains don't want to have to process ALL the visual stimuli we see all the time, so they use shortcuts to make snap decisions about colors, shapes and other visual cues we see during our day. While this is very handy, it also leaves room to easily 'trick' the brain into seeing things that are just not there!
