I just downloaded ubuntu 8.10 and was installing it on VMware server (free) … I starred at the strange wallpaper trying to understand what it was, and then to my astonishment it started to stare BACK! lol. No this is not the Indiana Jones adventure “ kingdom of the crystal skulls” . This is another adventure… a mystery!
Yes I could see a ghastly image, my brain was playing “trick or treat” on me (ubuntu 8.10 was released on Halloween you know!), or someone wanted to do voodoo to get MS to lose some share of the OS market! LOL!
Take a look below at the wallpaper: DO YOU SEE ANYTHING STRANGE???? Keep looking…
If you need help and give up.. LOOK BELOW:
SEE I told you there was something creepy there! A SKULL! Now look back at first image again.. .. HA! Sorry, now every time you will see that wallpaper you will see a skull. :-) This is of course a trick of perception..
lets see the real image behind this strange “ink blot like” wallpaper. See image below.. its just a bunch of seemingly random colors. Much like modern art.
Now lets flip this image. Still doesn't remind you of anything huh? But what does Ibex mean in the first place? ITS A GOAT! Yes a type of goat…. lets see now what that piece of the puzzle will lead us to: This image is of a goat.. Don't believe me? Then scroll down!
AND HERE I PRESENT YOU WITH REALITY!!!!
AWHHHHH its a little GOAT! No creepy voodoo subliminal messages. No Halloween trick or treats and no skulls at all involved!
