[Caution: Do not perform this illusion if you suffer from Extreme Short-sightedness]

Step 1: Hold your left Thumb midway between the screen and your face so that just above the tip of your thumb you see the crazed smily.............

Step 2: Keep your thumb in that position. Now tilt your head 5 inches to your left (if you are left-handed). If you are right handed, then tilt 5 inches to your RIGHT so that this crazed smily is just above your line of sight..........

Step 3: Now comes the tricky part SLOWLY move your thumb from current position towards your nose (whilst looking at it) until you can kind of see your one thumb become 2 blurry thumbs. For most folk this equates to an absolute minimum of about 8 centimetre (3 inch) distance from your nose.

Step 4: Now, your head should STILL have been tilted slightly. If it wasn't then those idiot folk will have to go back to step 2. Everybody else: Now tilt your head in the opposite direction and then back and close your eyes for about 5 seconds. When you open them, scroll down to be amazed!!!


The Only 'Astonishing' Thing About This 'Illusion' was the fact that you actually tried it..... I hope someone was watching you do this at your house or office and they think you are insane.

Also, do not perform this illusion if you suffer from credulity.
Some days it just doesn't seem worth trying to chew through the restraints.

I'll be talking in whatever ear Babymoo and Makoto leave for me to talk into.

Methinks Tha Reap has too much free time on his hands!
