#1 - I don't see any reason why it would be impossible. I've tried looking for a fuck-up but could not find one.
#2 - I've seen this before and they are the same color. Crazy shit.*

I've seen this one too.
I have a little bit of difficulty switching it. But it sure is neat.
I'm sure you could substitute a lot of objects in place of the woman and it would still have the same effect.

*The one you posted has dissimilar colors. Though the original works.

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.
