Because the re-arrangement is a cheat.
In the center is a rectangle, 1 x 3 ( h x w ). Find this in the original figure and you notice that the diagonal does NOT cross from corner to corner but misses it just ‘smidge’ at both corners. In the re-arrangement, this is ‘corrected’, although the result means that this line, when extended to the ‘new’ corners, actually ‘bends’ slightly as it passes through the indicated rectangle.
Don’t see it ? Try expanding the image and laying a straight edge along this diagonal. Otherwise, get some graph paper and actually cut out the figures and lay them out manually.
BTW: This is derived from centuries of obsession with the so-called Fibonacci Series ( 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc. ). The chosen dimensions occur in consecutive elements of the Series. You can construct similar ‘paradoxical dissections’ with dimensions 2, 3, 5 or 13, 21, 34 or whatever.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrives at Passport Control at Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris.
“Nationality?” asks the immigration officer.
“German,” she replies.
“No, just here for a few days.”
The Secret Service issued new rules of conduct for agents Friday.
They can no longer get drunk, procure hookers or go to strip bars.
The rules say that from now on, if agents feel compelled to engage
in such behavior, they can run for public office like everyone else.
“When I joined the military it was illegal to be homosexual, then it became Optional, and now it’s Legal.
I’m getting out before Our Commander & Chief makes it mandatory.”

Snow White And The Dwarf Coal Miners
One fateful day the seven dwarfs left to go work at the local coal mine (hey, even little people have to make a dollar) while Snow White stayed home to prepare lunch. When she arrived at the mine around noon with their food she saw that there had been a terrible cave in.
Tearfully, and fearing the worst, Snow White began calling out for them. She prayed her dwarfs had survived. “Hello, hello,” she cried out... “Can anyone hear me? Hello...” For quite some time, without hearing a word.
Just as she was about to lose hope, Snow White called out one last time... “Hello. Is anyone down there? Please, can anyone here me?” She then heard a faint voice, deep from within the mine. The voice said, “Vote for Obama!”
Snow White, relieved that at least one dwarf had survived, gasped “Oh, thank God Dopey is still alive.”
A VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CONDOM
In 1272, the Arabic Islamic Muslims invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine.
In 1873, the British somewhat refined the idea by taking the intestine out of the goat first.
No need to thank me. I do this as a public service for the advancement of American education.
