Like that "Check...and Doublecheck" game in Highlights Magazine, but for grown-ups.

The Daily Diff is a timed spot-the-differences puzzle based on public photo submissions. There's a new photo every day. For those of you who remember Highlights for Children magazine, it's basically Check...And Doublecheck for grownups.

What does it say about me that I assumed this was a single-serving hipster tumblr site, and I was excited and a jealous for not coming up with it first?

Q: Spot the difference between these pictures, both taken from The Cobrasnake.
A: The tattoo on the one chick in the background is post-ironic on the left, tragic on the right.

Cheat code:

Go crosseyed (like when you look at some stereograms), so the two images overlap each other in your vision. The hazy, flickering bits are the differences. This site even helps you by removing the differences once you've clicked them.

16 seconds on today's pic.

Just like we have warnings to people about posts that are not safe for work or that are just a single youtube link, I propose that we have a warning for links where users are required to suffer through an obnoxious video ad in order to access the actual content.

I saw no video ad.

This makes me want to go to the bar and play some nudie photohunt.

I always hated it when I would go to the doctor or dentist and some other kid had circled all of the differences with a pencil or pen in the Highlights magazine, thereby ruining it for every kid who followed him.

Oh. I didn't put a warning because I've never seen an ad before getting to the puzzle. Could be that Adblock filters them out, I guess.
