    ....well, it may just be me...but it almost looked like there were 12, then whoever made the .gif moved the top half of the picture and arranged it in such a way that it looked like there were 13.

    But again, that`s just me.

    hmm...very well made. I think its a mix of very small unnoticeable changes. Also, the guy on the far left bottom loses the very top of his hair, might have something to do with it.

    It is very easy to understand.
    I will give you a hint: when there are 13 people, you see they are smaller than when there are 12 of them.

    I figured it had to do with some sort of re-alignment trickery, but couldn`t figure out how.
    The explaination takes some figuring too!
    The key here is that there is TWO motions at once. If there was only one motion, it`d be obvious :)
    Its a cute trick :)

    The trick is...
    if you look good at it, there is one guy who loses one little piece of his body, an other guy loses a little bit more, an other guy loses more, so the last guy lose almost iis whole body. what happening? the first guy don`t get any piece back, the second guy get a bigger piece, the third got a bigger one, so finely the last one got the whole body(nr 13). my writing is bad but i hope you all understand.

    it all relies on the position that the person is standing. except for the top 2 guys, all the rest are at diffrent heights and are able to have parts of the person taken away withought knowing anything real knowticeable.

    Enough of all the oh i get it, but I`m not going to tel yous.
    <spoiler>
    All right listen closely. (or read) the guy on the left has his hair taken off. this is the very beginning. Another guy gets the tip of his show taken off. This is the end. You see when the tiny piece of hair was taken off it was added to another guy that had a bigger piece taken off of his head. This chain continues until there is a guy with a a whole body taken off. Right now it doesn`t make sense i know. It`s no use starring at the cartoon. go to http://dqd.com/%7Emayoff/notes/extra-man...
    Ponder over this for a little longer and you`ll begin to slowly grasp it.
