# I'm chopped. Yet, I'm joined

This is my first time I'm posting here. I hope you'll have fun!

But actually, I'm not.

Sometimes, I bend my lower body (in your view).
But actually, I don't.

Who am I?

• Welcome to Puzzling :) This riddle seems to be too broad, can you add more lines to make it specific? Commented Nov 26, 2018 at 11:18
• @ABcDexter Ok! Give me some time. Commented Nov 26, 2018 at 11:20

It could be

an object which gives an image like this is a straw or rod in water due to refraction. From a lower angle it looks cut and from above bent.

I actually thought these would also be cool to see

When the shutter speed does not align with a moving object. It can give a chopped, or sometimes bent object

• Interesting! By the way, can you explain me how is this chopped object? Commented Nov 26, 2018 at 13:32
• @rv7 This exact image isn't chopped, but you can imagine that if even less synched, the results would be chopped.

• @rv7 The effect is called the Rolling Shutter Effect, when Minor, it causes this, when major (the objects are high speed), it can flat out cut objects in half or hide half of them.

• @Ryan thanks for the Rolling Shutter Effect, I understood that this is also an answer. Heads up! Commented Nov 27, 2018 at 2:35

I think it might be a

rainbow

Is it?

• No. But, you're closer. Commented Nov 26, 2018 at 11:25

Could it be

A lenticular print? (the gif might not show well) You can have a picture of a tree chopped and bent at one angle, but standing straight at another angle.

It could be

Chopsticks
Just used it for dinner. Chopped and also joined at end ? Or am I wrong ?

• Hey richard, thanks for answering! I suggest you to provide an explanation also, as of why this answer fits into the riddle. Also, answers to riddle should not be exposed, you should use spoilers (>!) to hide them. Commented Nov 27, 2018 at 2:44
