    Hi Adrian.

    It is very confusing.
    The confusion is that we accept everthing we see.
    The secret lies in the two complete triangles.
    We assume the top line is straight, whereas in actual fact lower one is convex
    It can then be seen that the top one is slightly concave, passing un-noticed to the unwary eye.
    The area created is enough to allow a further square to be added in the lower triangle.

    Yes I can see that now, or at least work out that it has to be the case. Not convex or concave in the sense of a curve, but as a dogleg of two straight lines.

    The two triangles are not the same shape, which is what I and presumably most viewers were assuming. The green one is 5 x 2; the red one is 8 x 3 - but to be the same shape as the green it would have to be 7.5 x 3

    Here's a nice shot of camels in the desert,

    What takes time to see is that the black shapes are shadows cast by a very low sun and the camels are the little white sqiggles below them.

    Think we need to get this back to a general quiz guys and gals. So here is my question for you all.

    What area of London was housing and is now one of London's top parks?

    If you answer this one correctly please post another general quiz type question.

    On hearing of a proposal to fire-bomb the Black Forest, Britain's cabinet minister, Kingsley-Wood, said in September, 1938, "Oh, we can't do that, that's private property, next you will be insisting that we bomb the Rhur!"

    From Carve Her Name With Pride?

    The life that I have is all that I have
    And the life that I have is yours
    The love that I have of the life that I have
    Is yours and yours and yours.
    A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have
    And death will be but a pause
    For the years I shall have in the long green grass
    Are yours and yours and yours.

    Leo Marks wrote the poem All That I Have, as used by the character Odette in the film.
