Pareidolia to go

I’ve been getting email about lots of pareidolia on the web…

1) The Telegraph has fish with human faces. Well, since those really are faces – albeit fishy ones – it’s not exactly pareidolia. And the picture they have makes it look more like a cat to me. Still, Cool. And weird.

2) The Telegraph also has a series of religious pareidolia, but they don’t have my Lenin shower curtain. Maybe he doesn’t count as a religious icon. But it kinda looks like Randi, too.

3) I mentioned this before, but it’s worth linking again: treeidolia. I swear, it’s hypnotree.

Tip o’ the (something that looks like a hat but really isn’t) to fellow Hive Overminders Melissa Lafsky and Amos.
