    The explanations use too many technical words for this time of the day. This would be good if it was more simple.

    "Backgrounds of intermediate luminance unify the shapes into a surface appearing as “corrugated”, in which illuminance (shadows lines) and reflectance edges are distinguishable. A rotation of the shapes around the orthogonal axis produces either vertical or horizontal furrows on the corrugate surface, depending on which of their sides form, during rotation, the smoothest contour."

    Wh... What?! I came on here to just look at some cool pictures. I don`t get what I`m supposed to be looking for!

    Funny how the winner had the top vote (unsuprisingly) but then the very last one had the second highest score.

    None of these worked for me right away. I had to read the descriptions to see what was supposed to happen.

    Lame."

    I know, reading sucks, huh? All those words in those tiny paragraphs. Could we get more lazy?

    I could have saved your life, but the defibrillator had instructions I would have had to read.
