The yellow dots begin to disappear
JessySep 17th 2008 12:07PM
it took me a couple minutes to get a reaction. the blue lines will disappear
AmandaSep 17th 2008 12:09PM
I stared at the middle dot, and eventually the other dots disappeared from my sight as long as I didnt blink or move my eyes. Pretty cool!

LAME! Stared at center dot and NOTHING happened! Is rthis the best U can do?
AmySep 17th 2008 12:55PM
You have to click on the link to see the correct illusion! And when I did that (becuase the blue lines move when you visit the site), the dots would blink.
JENSep 17th 2008 12:57PM
You have to click on the link first. Don't be stupid and stare at the box that is above, nothing will happen. The blue lines don't disappear either, when you click on the link, you will see that it is the yellow dots that disappear.

LMFAO!! Bunch of morons here....
DerickSep 17th 2008 8:56PM
yeh me too... nothing happened...
hauntedgraceySep 17th 2008 9:15PM
if you stare at the still image, nothing happens...you have to click on the link to get the correct illusion.
MeSep 17th 2008 9:37PM
It's lame, nothing happened. I stared till my eyes were burning.
alekseySep 17th 2008 10:54PM
3 yellow dots disappeared!!
nunyaSep 17th 2008 10:35PM
this one didn't work for me...but does anyone remember the pictures they used to sell at the malls that were nothing but optical illusions??
ShamelessSep 17th 2008 10:38PM
Don't blink and u can c it It worked for me in a matter of seconds

When I clicked on the link, it shows the middle dot flashing and the whole grid turning. The other dots disappear and it doesnt take very long for it to been seen
PurrenSep 18th 2008 1:08AM
Center dot disappears completely! I hope this the right answer?
fishculture2000Sep 18th 2008 1:18AM
After only about 10 seconds the upper right dot disappeared. I remained fixed on the center dot but saw this with some sort of periferal vision. Soon the other two also disappeared. Blinking or moving my focus broke the illusion but it certainly works as long as you focus on the center dot.

i've stared at it for an hour and nothing happens!

I was annoyed at this also. I went back and clicked on the site of the "F" puzzle and it took me to the homepage where the puzzle is, along with many more puzzles. It would be exceptionally nice if AOL would make this a little simpler.
AnthonyROct 30th 2008 9:27PM
Yea, I thought there were f's here, not blue dots or yellow lines....I counted 10 f's...
WillOct 31st 2008 3:30AM
Me too. They must have changed the puzzle. When I go to the 'F' site, and they are animated, I count 16... but there is no provided answer anywhere. It's driving me nuts.
