When you look at something, just how confident are you that what you are seeing is accurate or ‘real’? Most of the time you can trust that your eyes are telling you ‘the truth’, but AsapSCIENCE shares some awesome examples of times when your eyes will literally be lying to you and you will not even realize it in their latest video!

Honey, at my age, there isn't a thing about my body I trust anymore!

Got my belt and suspenders, cane and wheelchair. Now where are my glasses?

Wanna borrow my trifocals?

Can anybody explain what's going on here?

Will anybody (looking pointedly at @LadyFitzgerald) explain what's going on?

What we have here is a running gag. Playing off the title of this thread, I cracked a joke about not being able to trust any part of my body, not just my eyes, due to my age. sirraf03 picked on the gag and played along with the suggestion of also being old with body parts that can't be trusted. I played off his joking comment of looking for his glasses by offering to loan him my trifocals (and yes, I do wear trifocals). sirraf03 continued the gag by pretending to accept my offer.
When you asked, "Can anybody explain what's going on here?", I assumed you were playing along and continued the gag by literally answering exactly what you asked (you only asked if anyone could explain, not to actually explain).

@LadyFitzgerald I'm sorry I can't quite see what's going on here ....
Sorry @NSDCars5 I'm working, and need something to take my mind off it.
ladyfitzgerald — 2013-09-11T20:24:50-04:00 — #11
That's because you don't have my trifocals.
sirraf03 — 2013-09-11T21:35:58-04:00 — #12
You're absolutely right! I've been using my Bi-focals for about 5 years now, it's probably time to take the next step (Help!)
nsdcars5 — 2013-09-12T05:19:13-04:00 — #13
Well, I'll just go back to being an idiot now.

Just claim Alzheimer's, it's great!
ladyfitzgerald — 2013-09-12T19:25:30-04:00 — #15
I know you meant no offense so I'm not ragging on you but Alzheimer's is not a joking matter. My Daddy had a series of strokes that slowly took his mind and, eventually, his life. He passed away 09/10/2007. Forgive me for being a sensitive but the last two days have been a bit rough on me.
sirraf03 — 2013-09-12T19:35:15-04:00 — #16
I understand, and sympathize, My Mother passed 11/29/2008 from complications due to strokes she'd had for the previous 15 years. Watching her deteriorate was hard. Sometimes I just have to find something to laugh at.
ladyfitzgerald — 2013-09-12T19:51:57-04:00 — #17
Thanks! My Mama passed away the same year as yours: 12/15.
nsdcars5 — 2013-09-13T03:42:12-04:00 — #18
I Googled it. Claiming that I'm crazy and slowly dying is not great, exactly.
sirraf03 — 2013-09-13T05:50:21-04:00 — #19
Sorry guys, all I can say is, long work hours = long work week - I'm dealing with mental cases and need to laugh sometimes, I know, not exactly funny but can put me off my game.
