Lance Armstrong was a one-time hero for many people thanks to his historic victories at the Tour de France. All of his accomplishments have been taken from him due to the performance-enhancing substances he admitted to taking. In a recent interview, Armstrong said he “wouldn’t change a thing” about the wild journey he went on.
The Seventh Time’s A Charm
When Lance Armstrong fought his way back from battling with cancer to win the Tour de France seven times, he was a hero. Not just in America, but all over the world people were in awe of the cyclist. Those seven Tour de France titles were taken from him in 2012 when he was finally busted for using performance-enhancing substances.
In It To Win It
Armstrong admitted that he did whatever it took to win, and that meant taking those substances. He knows it wasn’t legal, but he has no major regrets about “going from hero to zero.” There is a reason why Armstrong believes he wouldn’t go back and change those mistakes he made in the past. Armstrong doesn’t appear bothered about losing his fame and fortune because of what he learned.
One thing that seems to have kept Armstrong going through the years in the doghouse with the public is what he learned from his experience. Armstrong believes if he was never caught, then he never would have changed the way he was acting, and then he wouldn’t have learned any lessons. The former cyclist claims he was “begging” to be caught by the authorities, claiming he was an “easy target.”
Denying The Allegations
Accusations were being thrown around about Armstrong’s use of performance-enhancing substances, but he continued to deny them. Finally, he admitted to taking them during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which Armstrong says rocked his world upside down. Armstrong said he didn’t want to make any excuses and the buck stops with him.
He said others were taking the substances too, and perhaps he couldn’t have won without them. Armstrong says he made the decision to take performance-enhancing substances because he “didn’t want to go home,” and he wanted to stay in the race.
Armstrong admitted to taking the performance-enhancing substances eventually, but he claims he wouldn’t change a thing. Otherwise, he would never have learned his lesson.
Baby’s Got Back
There’s nothing like going for a horseback ride on the beach or through the park on a beautiful, sunny day. Perhaps that’s what this woman had in mind when she woke up but she didn’t have a horse at hand so she grabbed the next best thing she could think of — a zebra… obviously!
So, as much as you’d like to think that this lady’s got back in her zebra-print leggings, we all know the truth here… although we will admit that this photo is highly deceptive!
This woman definitely had the brains to promote herself as “rich” in the cheapest way she could possibly imagine. If you think there are two cars here, you’re wrong. After rubbing your eyes, you will realize that this is just one van with a clever design scheme.
It misleads you into thinking that there’s a Porsche in the driveway too. The tires clear up the confusion, though. Think about all the parking spaces you’re missing out on — and all because you’ve been tricked!
Real-Life Doctor Reed
Clumsy photographs with friends are memories you’ll cherish forever. This picture shows a group of young children of different ages, all gathered for a playful group photo. At first glance, you notice two discrepancies in the photo.
(1) the tall girl in the middle looks like she has freakishly long arms and (2) there’s a hand sticking out of the blonde girl’s head. It isn’t actually, of course, but this photo is super deceiving.
Art Imitates Reality
The angle that this photo was taken in creates the perfect illusion that we’re actually looking at a painting. And the OP’s tiny fists are holding the piece of artwork up for all to see.
A second look at the picture shifts your focus to the cliffs and the beautiful sea, so it may take you quite some time to notice that this isn’t actually a painting.
What Is Happening…
This photo will make you do a double-take; you may be scratching your head in hopes to figure out what exactly is happening in this picture. Does that guy have the body of a baby or does the baby have the body of a grown man?
After some concentration, you will begin to realize that the picture was just perfectly timed. In reality, the baby’s face is shadowing his father’s face, so you can really only see his nose. Once you see the magic, you can’t unsee it.
After seeing this photo, you’re likely going to say — WHAT ON SKULL ISLAND IS THIS?! Has King Baboon emerged?! To us, it instantly seems that the gigantic baboon is stomping his huge fist into the roof of the car. And naturally, the driver is signaling danger by flashing their taillights.
The almost transparent windshield creates the illusion that the animal is attempting to have a conversation with the driver that’s taking the photograph…
Do You Even Lift?
Who knew that cuddly, fluffy cats could also be bodybuilders? Seriously — is this photo making you question your own workout regiment?!
The thick thighs that this two-headed furry feline has probably means it has already tracked down Jerry (ya know, from Tom & Jerry) by now and completed its lifelong goal! Truth be told, this photo features two cats resting on the couch. They just happen to be lying in a position that makes it look as though this is one strong kitty-cat with two heads.
Who Let the Dogs Out?
Man with a dog head? Doesn’t this photo sort of remind you of the Egyptian era? We know that’s what we thought of as soon as we took a look at this picture. A moody and gentle yet manly doggo wearing a pink t-shirt just commuting to his nine-to-five job.
Although we’re almost certain that there is, in fact, a human sitting there next to the doggo, the image was captured in such a way that it seems like we’re looking at a dog-headed person. Still, that’s not the weirdest thing we’ve ever seen…
You have to bang your phone against your head several times to really understand what’s happening here. Still don’t get it? Wondering how this woman is magically levitating off the ground?
As much as we’d like to claim that Hermoine Granger taught this gal some levitation techniques, that is sadly not the case. If you look really closely, you’ll notice that the lady’s cheetah-print leggings just perfectly blend and camouflage into the floor below her. A-ha!
Unrealistic Beauty Standards
We can all agree that babies are just balls of cuteness and rolls. Sure — they can be a little gross, but they’re certainly a treat to the eyes.
This adorable baby with a dazzling smile — what could go wrong with a baby snap? Adults could! The positioning of the daddy’s legs makes it look as though the baby has some gigantic feet! Talk about unrealistic beauty standards, dad!
The Mighty Force of Nature
Who says one has to be underwater to swim? It can also swim at the surface, like this dude. If you’re thinking the man is getting pushed out of the water by an invisible magnetic force, you got it right!
Except, in this case, the invisible force is actually just a flatbed rock. Look at him having the time of his life. Is anyone interested in launching a plank swimming course for beginners?
Ant-Man in the City
We don’t know which part of the picture surprises us more! Is it the monstrous seagull standing there like a goof or the ant-man walking down the street? If you’re a photographer, then you must know that angle is everything.
Unfortunately, the photographer here doesn’t! This resulted in a gigantic seagull and a miniature human unbothered by each other’s existence. Talk about bad photography! However, we can’t get over the cuteness of the seagull. Those webbed feet surely show the posture of a model.
Hair as Old as Merlin
Who says that players can’t be old? As long as their heart is in the game, that’s all that matters! Just take a look at this basketball player, for instance! Well no, he just went to the panel of judges for an appeal, and the picture was taken right as he bent his head down.
Talk about timing! The white-haired man happens to be one of the judges. He’s in a seated position at the table, behind the basketball player.
When we’re upset, we often break down; we may fall on our knees and cry until our eyes can’t produce any more tears. Well, this guy lost a football match and this photo proves it. #9 is so upset that he grew an extra two arms for some added comfort, in hopes that it would calm him down.
Even if this photo looks deceptive, there’s actually another man behind #9. Like a good team player, he’s comforting his friend after a missed goal.
Feet for Hands
She has legs! However, can she also walk with her hands? Can she be the next Regan in a revived version of The Exorcist? We’re only kidding!
What’s really happening here? The lady was getting eaten by mosquitoes and so, she lifted her foot to scratch it. Wrong time, wrong position, and wrong angle. There you have it!
We bet that any diving contest you’ve been a part of didn’t feature skills like this! Don’t be jealous that she’s more skilled than all of us combined! If you look closely at her hands and fingers, you will understand that this photo is really a result of impeccably perfect photography timing.
But, we still do give it to the girl! Diving skills like that are no joke. Who would’ve ever thought people can dive this gracefully?
The woman kneeling in this photo seems to possess something that not many do — a third leg! To clear up the confusion, you first need to look at the woman’s hands.
This isn’t a bowl but the brim of a huge vase. The color of the vase just happens to be a shade that perfectly blends in with the rest of this gal’s body.
Aren’t these Yorkshire Terriers adorable?! Nope — they’re not conjoined although they look like they are! But, where’s the separation if that’s the case?
The dogs must be seriously mad at each other if they’re facing opposite directions. Let’s just hope that they’ve since made amends!
Living the Bull Life
To those living in the countryside with cattle, there’s no better way to spend a day than feeding and bathing the herd of animals that live right in your backyard.
Even if that means you’ll grow horns of your own, like this gal here! We’re only kidding, but this picture really was perfectly timed!
This is by far the scariest photograph that we’ve come across on this list so far. While the other pictures we’ve seen are rather comedic, spotting a guy with a head and no face, that too in the middle of his body, is quite overwhelming.
Who knew this could be a father and son twinning in formal attire while the father kisses his son’s forehead from behind…
This picture has been circulating over the internet for the past decade and we’ve decided to clear it up once and for all. In the photograph, our focus always goes to the woman in the back.
Why? Because most people think that they’re staring at her backside when, in reality, that’s actually the armpit of the woman taking the photograph. How deceiving!
We often find zoos hiring men to pose in gorilla suits to cheer their customers up. Have you thought about it the other way round? Gorillas undercover as men to get a glimpse of the human world!
These two beings totally complement each other! Truth be told, the man’s white t-shirt and red shorts are have just been reflected in the window — to the point that it looks like our new gorilla friend is wearing the same outfit!
Fish Eat Fish
We’re all familiar with the marine world, and the fact that fish eat other fish. As for the creatures on land, the closest we get to see that kind of thing happen is if a snake eats another snake.
Well, until now! This horse here seems to take cannibalism very seriously — to the point that he’s attempting to prey on another smaller horse. Or is it another alien escaping from Gazorpazorp trying to fit into this world?
Somewhere Beyond the Sea
This group photo would’ve been a perfect memory of a day well spent on the river — except for the mopey kid on the right.
Then you look at the guy on the left. He’s minding his own business, as he sits back behind the brunette. Of course, though, thanks to impeccable framing and timing, it looks like the woman and man share a body.
You Can’t See Me
What’s the coolest reflection you’ve ever seen in someone’s glasses? To us, merely finding our own massive nostrils gets us going — assumably because we don’t have outfits as funky as this.
Man, this guy has gargantuan eyeballs on his t-shirt. Even Mike Wazowski would be scared. Two scary eyeballs mirrored back at you can either mean you’re part of the new Saw sequel or this guy is from Mars and is trying to fit in.
The Power in You
Muscular women and feminine men can make quite a team, okay?! Just take this photo as a fine example. You have no idea who’s carrying who, but you do know that they’re getting somewhere… as a team!
The guy is, unfortunately, not wearing tights as we assumed. Even the girl isn’t that muscular the way the photo led us to believe. Focus on the shorts and the woman, and soon you can figure out how she’s being carried.
You can look at this picture for five minutes and still not really understand what’s going on. The man in the white is apparently hugging his girl so tightly that he separated her head from the rest of her body!
He must’ve done the act gently because she’s still smiling. If you concentrate on the person in the back, you’ll see that their shirt perfectly blended with the woman’s blouse.
Scientists have yet to discover fish with hands and legs, but this photographer still managed to capture the impossible — an aquatic animal with hands.
Imagine the endless possibilities this fish now has thanks to its extra limb! Life underwater just got so much better, people!
So, what long-armed alien escaped to planet Earth this time, Grandpa Rick? We’re only kidding. But, what’s really happening in this photo? The kids were attempting to steal cookies from the kitchen without getting caught by their parents.
Hence why you see an arm reaching out from underneath the table. Although it looks as though the blonde kid just has an abnormally long arm, his brother is actually hiding under the table so he can sneak into the kitchen to grab the cookies from the counter.
Just look at the precious Spaniels — one with a wicked grin and the other with an equally wicked rage. This isn’t a two-faced pup or a magic trick but just a badly timed photograph.
The dog on the right is probably more of a clinger, so it’s underneath its dad. Meanwhile, the dog on the right is staring directly at the camera with a particularly mean face. If you look a bit closer, you will notice that the owner is indeed holding two different leashes.
This photo you see here is the winner of the Siena International Photo Awards for its optical illusion. This is the floor of the Florence Cathedral.
When you walk across the floor, you might think you’re just walking past a vastly empty room that symbolizes the austerity of religious life, but when you look at it from above, the center just looks like a 50-foot drop.
What do you look for in the perfect bathroom? A showerhead? A gigantic tub? A mirrored vanity with lotions, oils, and bath bombs? Now, imagine the bathroom of a bus or train; barely five feet of space. Now, the image of the bathroom here with a fresh towel and filled dispensers may be located in a train but is it really as it looks?
If you look closely, you’ll see that the only real thing about this bathroom is the toilet. The rest is wallpaper! Just pee and get going.
Fashion Sense Kicked In
It hurts but it’s true. Despite being a major fashion icon, Asian men have a really drabby fashion sense. So, it’s obvious that this guy isn’t sporting jeans shorts or a pair of adorable heels.
A longer look discloses a chirpy girlfriend hugging her busy man at work. As for his sense of hip, the cool jeans jacket and spiky hairdo are definitely bonuses! Guys, no odd pictures.
Despite what your eyes are telling you, this isn’t some woman who has an open top and hairy chest — nor is this some weird optical illusion on the top. In reality, what you’re looking at is the reflection of a man’s chest.
The mirror here could either be the rearview or side-view mirror. Either way, this is yet another photo that took us a while to figure out!
There are very few activities as beautiful as synchronized swimming. Their signature moves just make you stare in awe, be it live or on camera. The camera is known to capture the most wonderful moments — as well as the most awkward ones.
This here is simply awkward. The vertical position of the swimmers along with the swimmer’s head in the middle makes it look like something that belongs to the arthropod and mollusk world. And the smudged eyeliner doesn’t help.
Although we love seeing celebrity dads, like Liev Schrieber, bonding with their children, this picture is just too odd for words. Liev’s head looks way too big for his body, and his legs are completely hairless!
Oh, wait. That’s Liev’s former partner, actress Noami Watts. She and Liev just happen to perfectly blend together in this one family photo.
This may take a while for you to grasp because this man cannot possibly have the body of an elephant yet the head of a cat. There’s actually a person sitting in the chair right in front of the camera.
This person is simply resting his head on top of his desk. All we can see is his back, which looks like it belongs to the kid in front.
Something Isn’t Adding Up
You can’t blame a woman for wearing khaki capris pants and you can’t shame a man for sporting the color purple. Although a faux pas moment for us, the situation is far less complex than it seems.
In actuality, the woman in purple is hugging her partner from behind as he reads his magazine. These optical illusions, also termed as montasirs, are each intended to be funny and make us laugh till we drop. No harm, no foul!
This could have been an adorable picture of a dog with its owner. We understand why the dog decided to lie down on his dear hooman! Little did he know, though, that this position would result in quite a funny photo!
Cuddling with doggos is fun, but when it comes to capturing images like this, you might want to be careful. We don’t care what people say — this dog definitely has a better body than his fellow hooman. The person taking the picture definitely had wicked intentions in mind.
Another ET Spotted
At first glance, we wondered, “Is this some sort of ET being with crazy flexibility or is it the result of a bad Photoshop job?” To be honest, the head of this woman looks like it has been cropped from a picture.
But, let’s get it straight! It’s just two beautiful women sharing a heartfelt hug, with one woman’s head draped over her friend’s shoulder. Photographers do have a way of capturing some pretty magical moments, as well as awkward ones!
