I just realized that I made grid illusion. It looks like there's grey dots where the black lines cross, but if you try to look at an individual one, it's gone. Explained here.

Seeing that EmperorPalpatine stole my idea, I had to force myself to see a completely different thing: a sign with the infinity symbol.

Bronze's submission stands out to me because he's successfully integrated that curve into a three-dimensional figure, which is rare not just for this round, but for the entire mental poop series. I was hoping to do a similar thing, but that's just fantastic.

Taking things in my usual direction, but at the same time switching it up a notch:

Instead of the glorified pin-ups I tend to post, I've determined that I'll branch out and portray the variety that we see in reality. This one celebrates the determination of those who seek to be healthy, regardless their size, shape, or predisposition. And Lottie only needs to get ten more pounds off before she could totally squeeze into her dress for the ten year reunion.

I don't see a picture, Strop.

What amazes me about this thread is the many different things people can see from the same thing. Although, I wonder how many people would submit the same thing if they could not see other user's submissions.

Perhaps you should use Fourier analysis instead of simple trig to get a result closer to actual

Oh man, that seems really cool and complicated. I don't think it's going to happen!

By the way, have you really named your pictures tegundering and vrundlhar?

And now for something tangentially related.

Yes, I name the pictures nonsensical things. If I task myself with coming up with something nonsensical base around real words, I'd get stuff like gobapukato and fwoobdor and words of similar nature, and maybe thiwezha and faffeljay if I venture a bit further out. List of all of the names I have used with explanation:

kagglestacks -- gaggle (of geese) + stacks
zapobun -- Zappa + bunny = Pikachu (har har)
furblom -- furry + bloom
crakoom -- crack + boom (I think that's already a word.)
locuticle -- lotus + cuticle = Ludicolo?
cortumba -- Cort├ęs + Moctezuma
vanta -- Fanta
shashleck -- slash + leek = Farfetch'd
pobondo -- Pondo + Bantu
retloti -- reticulated (python) + Milotic
badabing -- badaboom
pikasnik -- Pikachu + snicker-snack
podunkolus -- Podunk + homunculus
tegundering -- plundering +  Thunderlance + gun = The Thundering Gun
vrundlhar -- made-up word using 'vr' + made-up word using 'lh' = made-up word using 'vr' and 'lh'

Bonus:
gobapukato -- goby + puka (shell) + potato
fwoobdor -- fwoosh + Mordor
thiwezha -- thistle + whistle + Persia
fafflejay -- falafel + popinjay

And that's enough digression into the Mental Poop of Gantic.

That's pretty cool. I always wondered where the names of the images came from.

I noticed that the words stay within the vowel-consonant structures of English for the most part. I knew you weren't just typing gibberish and now I have proof lol.

Oh right, I see. I changed the image around but the AG servers took some time to update and I didn't know the link had broken.

Here it is again:
