Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon where "the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists." We know what you're thinking: "Shit, science? At this hour? I was not ready for that."

This is the thing happening in your brain when you think you spot an animal in a cloud formation, or a face in an inanimate object. Well, it just so happens that Faces in Things exists to document part of this phenomenon.

Faces in Things is a Twitter account that collects pics of various inanimate objects that, through sheer luck, look as though they have human features and expressions.

You know what? It's pointless trying to explain these things, let's just let the pictures do the talking.
