whew, i'm NOT schizophrenic.

you know the 'hollow mask illusion'? it's what happens when you can't tell the outside from the inside of a mask, like those 'sculptures' in the Haunted Mansion. now i want to stick around at Disneyland and listen to the crowd to see who isn't fooled...and thus who has schizophrenia:

Not everyone struggles to correctly determine the mask's orientation. New research shows that people with schizophrenia are immune to the effect – a finding that means the illusion could provide a diagnostic test for the condition.
