Do the straight horizontal gray lines look curvy to you? Hold up a piece of paper to prove that they are straight and parallel to each other.

i think the question is supposed to be "do the horizontal lines look slanted?"

Posted by bigSWAFF_69_10/17/05
Well, "Slanted" is a better word than "curvy".......

Posted by cdrock10/17/05
slanted also works, but they were curvy to me to :P

Posted by smilingpatience10/17/05
That trips me out a bit, the lines can be slatned, straight or curved, wierd.

Of course they LOOK bendy. But I know they aren't cause otherwise it wouldn't be listed as an optical-illusion. :P By the way, NICE ONE!!! :wink:

Yeah slanted is a much better word. I wondered why they didn't look "curvy" to me

Posted by purple_angel_8010/24/05

Posted by speediebean11/12/05
Heh heh, yeah little pickles. One of my favourite movie lines has to do with Val Kilmer and little pickles... it's always stuck in my head, and seems to pop out at the wierdest moments!

Posted by lilrena4ever06/01/07
its straight!!lol if u move your cursor thingy up n down it looks like the lines are wavy.

Posted by FutureMD06/18/07
I liked this illusion a lot. It is funny what just a little staggering of blocks can do to perfectly straight lines-a little philosophical, huh?

Posted by ringpop_rara06/23/07
loved it!!!!!!!! :lol:

Good job. Now, go to the first trivia ever made. (This is for The Amazing Race)

Posted by Candyhook11/19/10
they looked straight :D :D

Posted by Me-waz-here01/08/12
If you look at the side, or the ends of the lines, they are perfect.

Posted by cool_gal01/13/13
I don't even need a ruler to tell these lines are straight. The lines are just at a certain angle that makes them look slanted or curved. Great illusion, Jake! :P

Posted by Proph01/27/14
perfect one! :D

Posted by stitch-ex62610/26/14
WOW!!! that was a tricky one but I used a chocolate bar instead for a piece of paper.LOL all of u are awesome thank u for not cussing

Posted by XtinaF01/29/15
This freaks my mind

Posted by JeremyRedhead02/11/15
Interestingly enough, if you scroll the page up & down a bunch, it appears that the lines are moving back & forth. 8)
