    Like I can see what’s supposed to be the old woman but its never been much of a trick unless you think old people look like Yubaba from spirited away.

      That’s pretty cool! I love pictures like that. My grandfather, who was a really good artist, liked to draw faces for me that would change into a different face if you turned it upside-down. Sadly, I only have one left and it’s only a xerox.

      It’s very subjective. My wife kinda hates it. She’s a good looking woman, but she certainly doesn’t look like she’s 20. She often doesn’t carry a wallet - so if she’s ID’d it can actually be annoying.

        If she has a case on her phone could she put the id between case and back of the phone.

        I was speaking more about people over 40. Some places require ID regardless of age and older people often find it amusing or flattering.

          My wife is over 40 fwiw. She doesn’t particularly like being carded. She may have liked it in her late 20s or early 30s but not anymore.

          Just pointing out that it’s subjective.

      I teach an underwater photography class at a university. We were going to have a night dive one evening and a thunderstorm rolled in and we had to cancel, so we decided to go to a local pub that has great food.

      There’s a bouncer at the door, and he’s checking all my student’s IDs super close. He’s bending them, shining a light through them, etc making absolutely sure nobody underage gets through.

      I walk up behind my students with my ID out and he just nods and says “you’re good man.”

      I never felt so old.

        My ID picture is still the same one I took in my early 20s (almost 40 now), and even when I do get carded, 75% of the time they make a comment about how my “picture is really old,” “I look really young,” etc, etc which is always a punch to the gut.

        I’m always relieved since I carry my wallet less and less. I’ve learned to keep it on me right after a haircut though.

      I can’t see it in the comic posted by op but I can see it in other comments posting the original optical illusion image

      I had to originally squint at the original optical illusion image to get my mind to register it

      Perspective is wrong since we should be seeing the nose and mouth from the side (and only a little of one eye), but maybe this helps?

      The chin/jaw line of the young woman is the nose of the old woman, the ear is the eye, there is a horizontal line of the young woman’s neck that is the mouth of the old woman.

      At first I only saw the young woman too.

    Is it one of those pictures where you flip it to see young girl turn into an elderly woman?

      Not flip but kind of. Other comments have already explained it if you haven’t seen them yet

    I think it does not matter if the woman in the picture is young or old. Maybe the artist is trying to tell, that early young adult women are not easy to detect ? like ages 18+ ?

    My question is different: what kinda psycho abbreviates “id” as I.D.? And then followup, who collapses the period into it to make “I.D?”

    Id is identification, that’s one word. This isn’t an acronym. So arguably if anything if would be abbreviated with an apostrophe or maaaybe a single period at the end. Anyway English is weird

        Cambridge dictionary for “id”:

        abbreviation for identification: any official card or document with your name and photograph or other information on it that you use to prove who you are:

        Do you have any ID? A driver’s license or check card will do.

      ID is short of “identity document”. The Chicago Manual of Style agrees with your second point though, keeping both punctuations.

      You pronounce the abbreviated form as “Eye Dee” so you abbreviate it as ID. No, it is not consistent with other instances of abbreviation in English, but half of English isn’t consistent with the other half anyway.

      Also, id is an actual word, so that could cause confusion. The earliest uses of the term ‘ID’ or ‘I.D.’ are also from the US military, which absolutely loves abbreviating things and making acronyms for the sake of brevity, even if the shortening doesn’t follow the usual rules.
