We here at Fileunderi are huge fans of cool optical illusions (and even uncool illusions too).
Manfred Stader's Cup Of Coffee is one of our favorites because, well...we love coffee!As you probably guessed, the cup of coffee in the pic above is an illusion, painted on the stone. We think the woman is real.

From our "Breaking the Law! Breaking the Law!" File:
How many laws do you think YOU can break on a Walmart scooter?
In order to outbreak Marcus Earl Degraphenreed from the great state of Indiana, you will have to break 5 laws on your Walmart scooter. Observe:
1. Mr. Degraphenreed (henceforth known as Mr. D) was initially pulled over in Indiana 35 because he was, well, on Indiana 35. On a motorized scooter.
2. Mr. D was going northbound on Indiana 35. I mention this because the traffic in his lane was headed southbound.
3. Mr. D wasn't on just any old scooter, he was on a (you guessed it) Walmart scooter. When asked by the police where he got it from, Mr. D said, "I found it". Mr. D wouldn't elaborate, but we are just guessing here that he found it at his nearest Walmart.
4. We have saved the best for last. Police noticed that Mr. D was glassy eyed and disoriented. Could it be? Well, the police thought so, and arrested Mr. D on peliminary charges of driving (scootering?) under the influence, and theft. Mr. D was transported to a local hospital for a blood-alcohol test.
The scooter was returned to Walmart.
Your challenge, Fileunderi fans, is to break FIVE laws on a Walmart scooter. Please let us know how you did.

Mice bombs-the new weapons of mass destruction:
(Reuters) - Declaring war against invasive brown tree snakes infesting the Pacific U.S. territory of Guam, wildlife officials plan this spring to bomb the island with dead baby mice stuffed with a common pain-killing medicine that is poisonous to the reptiles.
Brown tree snakes, believed to have been inadvertently carried to Guam around the end of World War Two aboard U.S. military vessels, have become major pests blamed for wiping out native bird populations on the island.
Wildlife officials have worried for day reach other Pacific islands, especially Hawaii, nearly 4,000 miles (6,400 km) to the east, raising further environmental havoc.
"Guam is a very unique situation," said William Pitt, a wildlife biologist at the U.S. Agriculture Department's National Wildlife Research Center in Hawaii. "There is no other place in the world that has a snake issue like Guam."
The project is set to begin in March or April with dead newborn mice being dropped by helicopter over jungle areas where the snakes are most heavily concentrated.
One initial target will be the vicinity of Andersen Air Force Base, which is surrounded by dense vegetation and is seen as a potential starting point for snakes that might end up as stowaways aboard departing aircraft.
Stuffed into the mouth of each infant mouse will be acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and other over-the-counter pain-relief medications, which is toxic to snakes "and not a lot of other animals," Pitt said.
In an attempt to keep the baited mice off the ground, each tiny rodent will be attached to a strand of ribbon between pieces of cardboard designed to drop in a loop and catch in the canopy of trees, he said.
The goal of the aerial assault, which will eventually involving the dropping of some 2,000 mice in all, is not to eradicate but to curtail and control the brown tree snake population on the island, Pitt said.
