Is this a The Last Starfighter type situation?

Perhaps they're recruiting for people who go beyond the minimum request. Find 10, that's nice, thank's for playing.

Find more, tell them what country it is, approximate date and time, etc, they might give you a call.

Let's all click on the CIA's twitter feed.  That's a good idea.

Also, the entire second image is shifted down.

Found 8 without trying. Which is completely bizarre. As a kid I could never get more than one or two of the cartoon strip version of this. Hum?

My mom could probably find twice as many. She's creepy. She come home and notice the slightest thing. She'd know people came over. She'd know I was in her room. And all kinds or crazy stuff. I ended up having to by a Polaroid and take pictures before doing anything so that I can return things back to the state they wore.
I really wish she'd pursued leadership positions. She'd been a monster.

They need to hire a Farker with Photoshop. In the first photo, with whatever they used to turn the red car blue, they also took a chunk out of the woman's shoulder.

They also need to use a better JPEG compression scheme. Those photos have got more artifacting than the Natural History Museum.

TWX: Without resorting to any sort of in-software comparison this was what I found:

[Fark user image 850x478]

It took longer to annotate the differences than to find them.

And why the CIA said or implied there are only 10, when clearly there are more. Is it a trap?

I found 12 on my own, totally missed the graffiti and the tunnel architecture, but the biggest thing that stood out to me was the cropping.  I don't know if they intended it but it took a bit to figure out what was bugging me.

The idea was to find more than ten. And how much more than ten you could find. It's right there in the original tweet.

There's already a game for that.

See the red-headed woman on the bottom left?

In the top image her name is Helen.

The bottom image is Helen's twin, Marcy.

  Ooo this one's my fetish, errr I mean my 'Stupid Human Trick"

I can usually spot a tiny difference (like one character on a page full) in about 2-3 seconds.  For these it's pretty much instant.

Kind of like the old magic eyes pictures, if you cross your eyes a bit with 2 'spot the difference' pictures and focus on the middle one, the differences 'pop' out at you almost 3d.  You're technically using each eye independently, but if you have 3d vision like 99.99% of us do, then your brain is already programmed for it.

(I had to look at the article sideways to do this) lol

If you really want to identify all differences, set a cat on it.

Ours notices the tiniest changes in a room.

Do CIA employees have to play spot the difference games a lot?
