In spite of what your eyes are telling you, the smaller off-center circle is actually perfectly round.

Posted by on Feb 27, 2010

A circle is made up of short lines so therefore a circle can not be perfectly round. Nor are lines perfectly straight.

Posted by gathena on May 27, 2010

That shows that you can't trust your eyes! Tahnks for the science in that one!
