The human mind seems to be an unexhaustible source of ideas. The millions of stories written over the centuries, the inventions that have helped to significantly improve our lives, the astonishing works of art that have been painted, or sculpted, or built are the greatest testament to human imagination and creativity.
Some scientists say that our imagination is most active during childhood. Playing with toys seems to be beneficial for the development and flow of new ideas. But imagination gradually lessens with age. In fact, more often than not, the adults who are very artistic and creative are still children at heart.
But what about you? How imaginative are you? Find out by taking a look at this list of images, compiled by Viral Thread. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see them?
1. Under the sea
No, no, it’s just a dolphin, you naughty, dirty-minded reader! We wouldn’t show you pictures like that; there are special sites for that sort of thing…
2. A highly evolved specimen
Apparently, antelopes have evolved and now have two heads! Perhaps because this way they can detect predators lurking about more easily. Wait… that’s not a head; it’s a bird pulling the antelope’s ear! No wonder that antelope looks so done.
3. There’s something on your back!
What would you do if I told you that you have an octopus on your back? Panic? Yup, definitely. And running away won’t help you get away from it!
4. World’s greatest music festival
That looks like an epic party anyone would love to join in! Anyone who loves picking cotton with a combine harvester…
5. Decent exposure
At first glance it might seem like an indecent photo, but look again. Don’t let your imagination run that wild: it’s just his hand.
6. A dog with human legs
This cute little furball looks like a little grandma, all hunched up. Needless to say, those aren’t its legs…
7. One last ride
The world’s tiniest jockey riding a woman! Such poise, such grace: a gentleman on a leisurely ride around the countryside.
8. This woman will never lend you a hand.
But she will lend you a foot!
9. The invisible man
Everyone knows you need to be naked to be fully invisible…
10. OMG, he’s got a gun!
Don’t worry, that man is not about to start a war in the studio.
11. It’s just a prank, bro
They didn’t really cut off their thumb, it’s just a cherry!
12. Conjoined twins
These guys just wanted to show you how perfectly the one guy’s jacket would match the other one’s pants. And the result was priceless.
14. There can be only one!
I doubt if you were struck by lightning you would have such a big smile on your face.
15. Put some pants on!
If you though you could see that girl’s butt, you’re not the only one. But it’s just the woman in white’s arm.
16. Owl always love you
Birdman’s wedding photo.
So the long brown hair belongs to the girl in the pink, and both arms we can see are hers. The naked back belongs to the blond dude, but where did his arms go?!
18. A hairy situation
Sometimes we do neglect the razor a bit more that we should, but that seems a bit extreme…
19. Expecting trouble
Congrats… Oh, you’re not pregnant… #awkward
20. The Super Sniffer
She can inhale with the power of a vacuum cleaner.
