How can the squares be the same colour? If they were then the pattern of the board would not be correct as the squares should alternate between black and white.

I would love to see this image proven

Prove it yourself. Save the image as a bitmap. Open with a paint progtam and cut a piece from B and move it to A. They are the same color.

Wow! I was sure this would not turn out to be true! That's amazing! How could it be? They look so different until you drag it over there! Cool!

i didnt think this was true but then move the image around on 'Paint' and you'll find that they're the same shade.
