Have you ever seen something that confused you beyond belief? The kind of confusion where you had to do a double take, unsure if what you were seeing was in fact what you were seeing. There's something so completely disorienting about it when it happens; it's as if our mind is playing tricks on us, but we can't figure it out. We swear that what we're looking at is really there, even though it's throwing our mind for a loop.
Optical illusions are trippy – there's no denying it. And even though we know it's a trick of the eye, it still gets us in our head. It's so hard to unsee something once we're convinced we've seen it correctly. It's even crazier to think about the fact that people see things differently; something that looks one way to you can look completely different to somebody else. Like a puddle in a parking garage, for example.

This may be the trippiest of all. It's had people all over the Internet squinting their eyes.
To help out in understanding, somebody made the puddle black.
Cauliflower or smoke?Does anybody else feel as dizzy as I do? Smoke and cauliflower look suspiciously similar.
