    Interesting - 'A' looks a very dark grey to me and 'B' a light grey in shadow, but still much lighter than 'A'!

    Are you saying that the 2 squares both look the same shade of grey to you then?

    If you have low enough gears and pace yourself then possibly! If you try sprinting up in too high a gear then you will discover an important fact about yourself ... :whistle: :laugh:

    I have a game called 'Color Puzzle' on my phone which is based on lining up squares of various shades. I've noticed that the squares seem to change colour as they are moved about relative to each other.

    It really doesn't. Mask out the background so you can only see the bar. (your thumbs will do if you are viewing on a phone)

    Can't believe my eyes! (Optical illusion.)

    I just found something online which I found unbelievable, so I did what was suggested and imported the picture into a drawing package and checked... the statement is correct! Take a look at it ... [ATTACH] I added the bar labelled 'C' to check...
