Let's face it, online quizzes sometimes just make you scratch your head, especially when things go wrong, like on this one.

Someone asked programmer Zach Zundel just that recently, or to be more specific, to do coding/backend work for free: "Lmao sorry friendaloo but if you want me to write you a couple thousand lines of code you get to profit from forever it's gonna cost you," said Zach in a tweet.

We've featured Michael Paul Smith's work before, but his fictional "Elgin Park" town is an optical illusion worth revisiting. This professional model maker and photographer uses forced perspective to make the 1950s town appear more real than not. All of the cars were handmade and are detailed enough to not be mistaken for toys when shot up-close. "I created Elgin Park so anybody can be there. It's a miniaturization of life," said Smith.
