Here's an eye test for you!


  1. It wasn't so dificult to read all that. Besides what you wrote about reading, I have also been exposed to all sorts of written text and can read almost anything.

    But it was very interesting to see that in a text, thanks for that!

  2. You're welcome Minka! Question though, what did you see in the pic?

  3. I saw people alright. Whenever I'm unsure, I check it before saying one thing or another, otherwise I don't know, I might say sheep at first glance, who knows?

  4. Maybe I should have removed the text from the pic before putting it up there Minka ;)

    Nah, I'm just kidding, you'd be surprised though, when I e-mailed that off to a few friends, they did indeed see sheep!

  5. Ha I see Sheeple bowing to their elected leader Obama who will take them out of the darkness and into the brightly lit slaughter house with all of it's cleverly concealed flaying knives called "we are change".

    Yeppers thats what I see allright yep ahum.

  6. Ah Silv, trust you to take it to a totally new level. You're absolutely right of course, neither sheep nor people, but indeed sheeple!

  7. Um....I see dead people.

    Just kidding. I saw cats.

    No wait. That was your header.

    I actually saw people stamps.

  8. Ah, welcome here Reforming Geek, I don't believe I've seen you around these parts before!

    You know, I hadn't thought of people stamps, but that certainly works as well!

  9. I saw nekkid ladies! Yeeha!

    Actually mate, I was over at my favourite comic strip and I wondered if other people, um, like you and whatisname, had ever heard of 'wondermark'? It's absolutely brilliant. If I was doing a comic strip (and was very clever and good at that sort of thing) this is what it would look like.

    The front page, with twice weekly new strips is here -

    It's a bit scatological this week, which might put some people off. Which would be a shame since it normally isn't scatological. I know how North Americans are squeamish about this sort of thing. Anyway, if you want a good round up, the author has put together a greatest hits collection here -

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Ciao Ciao!

  10. Thanks Nobody, no I hadn't heard of Wondermark, so thanks for the links, I'll go check it out!


I've decided to use comment moderation simply because that way, I never miss a new comment on my posts. I'm really quite forgetful and tend to not remember how many comments had been in each post the last time I looked, so please bare with me and my memory lapses :)
