Mindblowing illusions will make you distrust your brain
Warning: this may actually make your brain hurt. YouTuber Brusspup has made a bit of a career out of his optical illusions, with 193 videos uploaded as of today, and many of them making views in the millions with their mindbending yet completely real tricks of the mind and eye. Utilising good old fashioned science and some viral pop culture knowledge, Brusspup has instructables on all manner of illusory tricks, such as the free standing bottle holder and the age old 'these tiles are the same colour' illusion, which is the ultimate way to make you hate your brain for falling for these tricks so easy. We really are a race of Wile E. Coyote's running into that fake tunnel. Below, a simple example of dumb our human brains are.
