I hope you enjoyed my Part 1. Now I’m going to hide some sneaky mind tricks, so look out! 

7. Look closely at this:

This is the illusion you LIAR. In case you are wondering what I mean by that, look at the image and see for yourself. See it yet? Turn your face to the right and look at the image again. Now do you get why I called you a liar? Turn your head to the right and the face will magically turn into the word liar!

8. 20+20+20=60. If you are going to get 60, you have to use the same number three times and it can’t be 20. You can put two of the numbers together to make another number. For example, let’s use 3. 3+3 =33. You are also only allowed to do adding. What number is it? Get it yet? 5. See, 5? 5+5=55. 55+5= 60. So annoyed, I know. I’ve been there. Being fooled by the simplest of questions messes with your head.

9. Final one. Are they straight?

Several thick lines are shown, with misaligning black stripes going horizontally down. Each of the outer lines appear wonky, but are they? You decide.

The answer is the lines are actually straight. Check it for yourself, get a ruler and check to see if they are straight. They certainly don’t look like they are, do they?

This concludes my Best illusions and riddles mini-series. Keep a lookout for my next magical article.
