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.

Meet the next generation CAPTCHA, except both images will be covered in random lines and have different exposures and white balance.

The beetle by the curb near the "Rarking" sign is 10 inches to the right in the bottom picture.

cyberspacedout: 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.


Only if they want Monty Python, Scarface, and Airplane! references or disaster girl, mustard guy, and silly walk Leonardo added to everything.

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.

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

Also, the entire second image is shifted down.

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.

It's a carefully constructed ploy. If you are in the US, and spot ALL the differences (since there are more than the 10 they say) they offer you an intelligence agent/analyst position. If you are a foreign national, they hunt you down and kill you.

I don't see what spot the difference puzzles have to do with trying to brainwash people with acid, trafficking cocaine, and trying to assassinate people...but ok.

This is the sort of thing where they ask you to find the differences, but the actual test is that there's a message hidden with steganographic techniques in the image isn't it?

Looks like taking the second option made me a few hours late to the thread.   Did you know there is an entire genre dedicated to step-moms on those how-to sites?

Anyway, did y'all find the differences or do you need help?

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.

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