a. Hold the picture 1 close to your face so that your nose touches it (You might want to print it out.. you know its the flu season :P)
b. Slowly move away from it and try not to focus on 1
c. Continue moving it away from you very slowly until you see a Shark.

Now for the question. What are images like 1 called?

Why did we have the theme round?Just to celebrate, in our peculiarly own geeky way, that we’ve posted a hundred questions!

The question titled 0x64, was the 100th question posted on Boiledbeans, and therefore we chose it to be the last question of the theme round.This post is just a shout out to say, we’ve had one amazing time doing the hundred questions, and it’s great seeing all of you answering them!

We promise you lots more Drama, Intrigue and Geekiness in the questions to come. Here’s hoping you’ve enjoyed it too :)
