Zebras let your eyes spin

Today the 24 hours of Le Mans end. Many cars raced around in circles for very long. Me too. With my eyes. In the journal Auto Motor Sport (issue 13, June 5th, 2008, inlay p. 6–19). Data for Audi on page 10. Data for Peugeot on page 12. I keep on skimming back and forth. Then wham: paw on top and both tables are where they belong: side by side.

Le Mans article with my paw

Now its making me real dizzy. Two zebras. One starts its gallop with grey the other with white.


The eye combines identical things. It hops from grey to grey and from white to white. The eye presumes meaning. But there is none. Besides that: low contrast, bad to read.
