This is Funny!

Again, from my favorite science gal, I Fucking Love Science on facebook, posted this funny little fact:
Pareidolia is a mental phenomenon that allows us to see faces and other objects in completely unrelated settings. Carl Sagan theorized that this provided evolutionary advantage, as it would allow humans to better recognize each other, even under poor visual circumstances. 
The important thing to remember is that even though these images may seem significant and life-changing, they aren’t. At all. We can all rest a bit easier knowing that these are mere bell peppers, and not vegetable zombies, ready to exact their revenge on the living.
