Skydiving is loads of fun. In my younger days, I did it a number of times. It's only the landing that can be tricky and I only had one landing that was less than picture-perfect. That was about 40 years ago and it still hurts occasionally.

That's 1 party that brought the roof down.

14 people taken to hospitals in roof collapse near Ohio State University.

It's lucky that no one was killed.

Cheers.

From https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-news/2023/05/08/photo-optical-illusion-egret-japan/

Mind-bending wildlife photo leaves people baffled – can you work it out?

The picture looks like it could be edited but is in fact a clever optical illusion




A mind-bending photo of a bird has been causing a stir online with some unable to believe it is real.

The picture, entitled Gap, was captured by Japanese photographer Kenichi Ohno.

It shows an egret wading in the shallow water, with a concrete wall behind it casting a shadow on the lake.

The perspective of the photograph makes it seem as though the bird has been edited on top of two different backgrounds.

A different view of the same scene reveals how the concrete block creates the optical illusion.

I was puzzled for a bit until I realized there was a wall in the background.
