Is This Possible??
Are the purple lines straight or bent?
Do you see gray areas in between the squares?

You should see a man's face and also a word...
Hint: Try tilting your head to the right, the world begins with 'L'
If you take a look at the following? picture , let me tell you ... it is not animated.? Your eyes are making it move.? To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving.? Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving.? But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it....? Weird?

Fwd: FW: Got Milk?
I live on a farm and times are pretty hard as the area I live in is
considered economically depressed. It's so bad, that I've heard
some of our neighbors were having a hard time making ends meet.
This morning, I woke up to hear a knock at the door. When I went
to answer the door -- this is the sad sight that I saw. It just about
broke my heart...!!
Please scroll down, to see for yourself...!!

JURY DUTY SCAM - BEWARE!
JURY DUTY SCAM:
This has been verified on Snopes.com (link listed below) and by the FBI (their link is also included below).
Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced.
Fall for it and your identity could be stolen, reports CBS. In this con, someone calls pretending to be a court official who threateningly says a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you didn't show up for jury duty. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Sometimes they even ask for credit card numbers. Give out any of this information and bingo! Your identity just got stolen.
The scam has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma, Illinois, and Colorado. This (scam) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they're with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Fw: FWD: More BUSH-isms??
----- Forwarded by Karen C [Judic.] on 06/22/2006 02:51 PM
To karen C
PM "William C.
Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning.
He told Bush that 3 Brazilian solders were killed in
Iraq. To everyone's amazement, all the color drained
from Bush's face.
Then he collapsed onto his desk, head in hands, visibly
shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself and asked Rumsfeld,
"Just exactly how many is a Brazilian?"

Re: Fwd: FW: Mother of the Year......
Oh my... this is just precious! I loved it!!
Thought you might enjoy this!! In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors ! decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans" that could be found quickly, were a litter of weaner pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger
Would they become cubs or pork chops???? Take a look........ you won't believe your eyes!!!!
