This Floating Bin Optical Illusion Has Officially Melted Everyone’s Quarantined Brains

Let’s not beat around the bush here – there’s an image of a bin that’s being doing the rounds online, and the bin is 100% floating. I mean, it’s not technically 100% floating (hi gravity), but it 100% appears as thought it’s floating. And I will fight anyone who tells me otherwise (kick the doubters to the curb, if you will).

Reddit user u/seyfaro shared the below spectacle, and users couldn’t help but comment on how brain-frying this image truly was/is/will forever be.

Behold, the official optical illusion for 2020 isolation.

No matter how hard I try, I can’t see anything other than a floating fucking bin. We’ve been in isolation too long.

“People need to be more responsible,” one Reddit user commented. “You can’t just go around throwing away your anti-matter in any old bin. Recycle that stuff!”

Let’s get a little closer shall we?

No matter how close I zoom, my brain refuses to see anything other than floating garbage.

“Cover the ‘shadow’ with your thumb,” another user suggested, “and the brain will magically start working again.”

While this is certainly helpful, I’m now content in believing that rubbish bins can float and I would like to stay in that fantasy.
