I can't quite figure out why my eyes won't accept the picture for what it is, instead they insist I must be drunk or concussed.

That just gives the even more confusing sensation of being cross-eyed in monovision. Unsettling.

Your brain uses pattern recognition to make visual processing go faster, and the human face is a pretty fundamental pattern.

You show it an image like that, and it will assume somthing is off with your eyes and attempt to correct.

The same thing happens with optical illusions -- your brain knows what to expect, and "fills in the blanks", resulting circles and squares where there aren't any, or perceived motion where there isn't any.

Of course, all the above image results in is pain.

I'm going to go lie down, now.

yup, there's some process in the human brain which is all the time going 'where's the face where's the face?'

I find that drinking is like being drunk, but I might be intoxicated when that happens.

I never went to bed with an ugly girl.

Waking up is another story.

This happens sometime after my friends usually start speaking Dutch, I stare at their mouths and nod as if I understand and then lose patience and ask 'what the fuck are you talking about anyway' and then pass out.

I hate getting drunk, liver aches the next morning, irrational craving for egg n bacon sarnies (with loads of ketchup of course) unusually high degree of willingness to shag things. Alcahol bad.
