I passed this by the photo club members today and it freaked with their heads. Now it's your turn. Take a look at this image which I came across on the Web recently:
See the squares labelled "A" and "B" - they're actually the same colour.
You don't believe me do you? No one does: I certainly didn't. If you've got any sort of image manipulation software then save the image and then sample the colours, or crop out everything other than those two tiles. Then you'll see it's true.
It's very odd.
