Whether it's because our eyes are playing tricks on us or because of a strange first impression, some situations will make it seem like the world has completely stopped making sense at first.
Although she didn't exactly see this, I can recall one time where I was pouring a drink from a weird enough angle that it apparently sounded to my mom like I was peeing all over the floor.
I couldn't tell why she had a shocked expression on her face at first, but until she saw what I was actually doing, she thought, "Oh my God, he's lost his mind."
For some of the situations we'll be looking at today, a similar thought may cross our minds until we get the context. However, others won't become any clearer to us no matter how much we look at them.
