Make the pink go away

I really like optical illusions like this, because of the way they show you that the world isn’t as obvious and mundane as it seems in the same way that magic tricks can, in those very rare times when someone does them without tarting them up with far too much showmanship (say, David Blaine at the best of his street magic, and certainly not at the worst of his stunts).

And I particularly like that I found it only because Norman Walsh pointed it out despite misgivings about it being an “everyone’s already seen this.” (Heh. And while getting Norm’s link, I see that Aristotle beat me to the “do it! link to good stuff no matter what!” point.)
