The mirage irl is the shimmering surface on the road the looks like a bunch of puddles and the mirage in cartoons is the whole oasis
@SpankieMcGee , y...yes.
Kangaroos still see the second image
@an idiot, in cartoons, whenever someone is wandering the desert, they'll hallucinate and think they found trees and water in the distance but weren't actually real. In real life, this probably doesn't happen.
@MrWonka, I understand that but they shoulda actually showed this happening in a desert not a road.
@MrWonka, nvm I didn’t fully read what you said, I understand now and my name stands....
@MrWonka, it can happen. combine the shimmering with hallucinations from extreme dehydration and you’ll see anything your brain wants to see
@BearDaniels, hmmm i figured, that's why i threw in that probably but still, crazy how your mind can play tricks on you like that when you really think about it
@MrWonka, and they often have the character start eating the sand thinking they are drinking water.
I don’t see anything.
@Rowule, the hazy part on the road, that’s the mirage. It can be mistaken for water in a desert as it is the same effect
@Rowule, it's because you're not thirsty
