Have you ever wondered why we are able to spot faces in everyday objects? Well, the scientists at the University of Sydney discovered that humans not only notice faces in ordinary things, but that our brains also analyze them for emotional expression in the same way that real faces are processed, rather than dismissing them as false detections. The said phenomenon was even given the name "facial pareidolia."

With that in mind, usually, when something similar occurs we tend to take pictures of the said objects, therefore I decided that it would be a fun idea to let the community members of Bored Panda share their takes on the topic!
