Gradient Stripe Illusion
Category: Shape and Color | Added: June 4, 2009 | 14 comments
This image shows a grey stripe on a gradient background. The stripe appears to be shaded with a grey gradient also, however if you look closely you'll see that in reality the stripe is the same color all the way across.

Nope, not stupid. Paste this in a paint program and take a square from each side and compare them. Exactly the same.

You people make this hard. All you have to do is cover the top and the bottom of the line with a piece of paper revealing, tada, a solid colored line!!!
