If one intentionally takes a troll thread seriously while also acknowledging that it's a troll thread, then is one being trolled or is one trolling the troll?

That first one of AOG's is obviously not an impossible cube. It's just a cube. He got the wrong picture. This is an impossible cube-

And I don't think the mind pretends it's a normal cube at all. It's freaky, true enough, but it's an obvious freaky.

I'm sure you could substitute a lot of objects in place of the woman and it would still have the same effect.

I know this is real rather than a parody like the thread, but saw this today (not for the first time) and it still rates as my favourite optical illusion

Stare at the cross in the center and you will see a series of events:

A circle of purple spots, one spot disappears clockwise.
A circle of purple spots, one spot turns green clockwise.
THE GREEN SPOT EATS THE PURPLE ONES!
Only the green spot remains, circling around the cross.
