i think the question is supposed to be "do the horizontal lines look slanted?"

Well, "Slanted" is a better word than "curvy".......

I liked this illusion a lot. It is funny what just a little staggering of blocks can do to perfectly straight lines-a little philosophical, huh?

Jul 20, 2009

technically, it isn't slanted or anything.
Simply, the "checkerboard"
isn't exactly formatted as it should.
The row under each other is simply
placed out of the order therefore
making it look slanted.

If you look at the side, or the ends of the lines, they are perfect.
cool_gal*us
Jan 13, 2013

I don't even need a ruler to tell these lines are straight. The lines are just at a certain angle that makes them look slanted or curved. Great illusion, Jake!
