How would it be five? A dollar more than the cost of the ball means that the ball was 10 cents

Um If you add 1 to every number in the 3795 it would be 4906 because of regrouping not 4806

I can just imagine someone trying to pull the Moses illusion on a Christian... "So, how many animals of each kind do you think Moses brought on the arc?" "...You mean Noah, right?" "Uhm..." "I went to Sunday school every week for 7 years of my childhood. Don't expect me to fall for your pathetic attempts at tricking me when it comes to this kinda stuff"

Now I don’t feel special, I’m sad now.
I'm gonna make me some soup now..
You didn't actually give me any time to come up with any conclusions about the woman, so I'll have to take your word for it I guess. Yeah it takes a moment to calculate 19x26=114+380=494 in my head. I cannot see optical illusions, trust me I've tried lots of OI videos on YouTube. To me the lines looked the same length and the silhouettes looked the same size to begin with. Does that mean something?  It didn't take me any time at all to +1 each number (just the time it took me to physically say the numbers). I indeed didn't notice the color change, but I never notice colors (unless they're pointed out or I intentionally focus on color for some other reason) because of my detail blindness. I did notice the numbers changed on the right in my peripheral vision but didn't bother considering the significance. I didn't notice the last one jumped to +3 until you were pointing out the color change. I didn't consider 10¢... That makes no sense, it'd make the total $1.20 that's obvious without thinking. Though it did take me a moment to calculate it, less than the multiplication problem though. I guess you fooled me with the Moses one, I feel like this example is pretty niche though. First I had to remember what story you were talking about, then I had to remember the question to figure out what you were asking exactly, then you said it was Noah so I couldn't keep thinking about it because you already gave me the answer. I believe there is a good chance I'd have noticed it if given more than 1 second. A better example might be, "If an apple tree has 4 apples and John picked 4 apples, how many apples did Jian pick from that tree?" Because it actually provides a context that everyone is made familiar with. I immediately noticed the gap in the supposed B and thought it was very weird, I've never seen a font like that before. Sure I could see the context and figure out they meant B, it takes a moment but a very short one. Well actually if you hadn't pointed it out maybe I would have assumed it was a 13, I'd have considered it could be B quick enough but it's not that unheard of for a code to contain letters and numbers and there was no real context given so I may have assumed it was a code rather than the first 3 letters of the alphabet and made the judgement that 13 was more likely than B. I don't think I'd ever interpret 13 as B in that other context under any circumstances, I'd just read 12 13 14 and not question it. I didn't imagine anything about Ann because I was thinking about the letters and numbers still when you started talking about what I imagined about the phrase which I hadn't even read yet. You don't pace your videos very well. I immediately thought of soup and soap but assumed soap was the correct answer since one wouldn't wash soup.

So that ark on didn’t trick me cuz I’m non religious but my friends super Christian and he tried to tell me about the ark and stuff and he told me about Moses. Cuz I have never read about all the characters, I get a distinction. Being stupid ftw!

Firstly, you dont need to add 3, I already gave up at +1.... Secondly, I read that exactly as ABC, Ann approached the bank, 12 13 14..... I did nothing as you said in video tbh.... Lastly, am I the only one who first read "Wash Soup" and then realized its supposed to be Soap?
hi, thanks for the amazing videos! Do you have anything to help me to see / understand in 3D. When studying chemistry or biology one often has to think in 3 D and rotate images. It is so hard for me to do it... can you please help?? I hope so :) Have a nice day! :)
