You know when you look up at clouds that you can see shapes.  Yeah, bunnies, snowpeople, cars, South Dakota, airplaines...oh, wait...that was a real plane. 

It is called pareidolia and is one of my favorite brain curiosities.  It is when we see objects of shapes in otherwise unconnected objects.  Like clouds.  Like religious icons on french toast, or potato chips.  Like the face that the bathroom sink and faucet resemble.  Like vegetables that grow to resemble Richard Nixon...interesting metaphor that, and I am thinking of a particularly rude tomato I once saw.  Like that creepy and expensive new-ish teapot that looks like Hitler.  Oh...oh...oh, how can I forget the man in the moon!

Once you find the 'hidden object' it is not possible to un-see it. 

This one involves NASA, which provides me with my beloved Hubble.  Ah, the stories I could tell.

Anyway, enjoy, from the folk who gave us the face on Mars,

A short hour and I am feeling less twitchy.  Cool.
