Fun Time

This site has compiled some of the worst album covers ever. Some of them are really cool.

This one is really good. A flow chart to solve every screw-up.

And this one proves why studying is unnecessary.

A Superb Movie: Spin

Especially those movie makers in Hollywood should watch this excellent short movie, Spin. It’s a very fine example of independent movie making and that it’s not the money or those give-me-a-break Tom Cruises that make up a good movie but rather being creative, knowing what you’re doing and doing it good. Don’t forget to check out the other movies in Double Edge Films.

Well done, guys. Keep up the good work.

Optical Illusions

optical.jpg

I’m sure you’ve come across one of these optical illusions. On the image above the orange square (on the dark front side) and the brown square on the top are actually the same color. Hard to believe but true. For non-believers there are many ways to validate it. You can download a free color picker and read the values from the screen. You can cut those pieces with the help of an ordinary image editor, put on plain background and see or just print it, cut those portions and compare.

I’ve recently come across this flash based site, eChalk, that includes many of those optical illusions. They actually have a mask utility which can do the job of separating the necessary bits from the rest and make you see the truth.

Having opened the subject why not include some more sites.

Optical Illusions & Visual Phenomena: Excellent site on optical illusions. Also included is the theory behind these illusions. A must see.

Akiyoshi’s Illusion Pages: Includes some new illusions.

Mighty Optical Illusions: There are some really interesting stuff here.

Optical Illusions: Worth a visit. You may come across something new.

Grand Illusions: Good site. Be sure to check out the Dragon Illusion; just fantastic (make sure to download the demo).

Color Vision & Art: Excellent site. Lots of information on color and the theory behind it. If you check out the whole site you’ll know the real reason behind many of those illusions. They’ve included many online sliders to make things clearer. Don’t forget to check out Claude Monet’s Impression Sunrise.

IQ Tests & Job Interview Questions

Cross the river

It’s rumoured that the following riddle is used to asked during job interviews in Japan:

crossbridge_flash-400.jpg

The rules are fairly easy. A mother, a father, two girls, two boys, a policeman and a convict are to cross the river with a boat. The conditions are:

  • The convict cannot be alone with any member of the family without the policeman.
  • The father cannot be with the daugther(s) if the mother is not there.
  • The mother cannot be with the boy(s) if the father is not there.
  • Only the father, the mother and the policeman know how to sail the boat (so one of them should be on the boat on each crossing)
  • The boat holds at most 2 people.

Good luck!
