Default Can you see the number?

They say only 3% of people can see the number, are you one of them?

Sorry Greg if I ruined it for you but these things have always fascinated me and I should not have blurted out the answer.

When I was in the Air Force ('66 - '72) I could read the number on the tip of each prop blade (three blades per prop and each blade had a different number) of a Pratt & Whitney 4360 at idle.

When I first saw this little exercise I said to myself "I'm one of the 3%!" Then I posted this image here and low and behold virtually every respondent claims they can see a number, too! Albeit this is a very small sampling, there's just too many seeing a number to claim only 3% of all people can see a number.

Now this has got me wondering if the designer of this image, which first appeared in a scientific journal, is on to something . . . Could there be a number in there, besides the obvious, more cleverly disguised that only 3% can actually see?

Glasses off, it's plain as day. Glasses on, can't see it at all.
