A simple animation / puzzle

More than anything, this is just an experiment to see if I can host this a simple animation / puzzle on my "Digital Media Magik" site… but then use it elsewhere — like here. You get about 25 seconds to stare at it before the solution will reveal itself.

OK, they're not Men or People — they are more like Stickmen... for a whole host of 'Stickmen' games, click on 'People' in the title below...
How many People appear in this image ???

Looks like it works !
Contact me if you have a rational explanation for this (or just cheat and "look at the answer" that was submitted by a genious friend of mine who commented on this posting).

Full explanation of the "extra man" illusion:

Well, crap! I spent my 25 seconds trying to figure out which were "men" and which were "women".

How many "persons" are in this picture might have saved me... or not ... I'll have to read the longer, detailed explanation - later, when I have more time.

Tricky bastards all of you! :-)

Yea, you're right. "Men" was unnecessarily misleading - so I'll change that. For some unexplainable reason I guess I just had "men" on the brain. If anyone noticed, you'll see that I also changed the picture alt-text + what the (formerly) "Men" link points to. "Stick men games" are much more interesting, IMHO; I don't know what I was thinking when I first put this tidbit together.

Thanks for the feedback !
