Ap e/o i/i l/r o/e n X?

That's just simply an awful logo. It took me a few guesses to eventually find Aperion X (and only because my misspelling of "apeilon x" finally was close enough).

Note: Apparently cop cars handle crashes really well. The driver escaped with only minor injuries - and a felony arrest record.

No, they are very good for me. They're bad for those who wear them.

That makes them bad for you by proxy.

But this one wins.

"Nobel laureate spots Turkish banknote error":

The DNA helix on the banknote is left-handed, but most (all?) life on Earth uses right-handed DNA.

Maybe it's just one of those depth perception optical illusions.

I'm pretty sure it's the fact that its feet are in the wrong places.

True, but that illusion also points out that despite our perception that we THINK we have a wider field of view, the clearest part of our vision is only within about 1.5 degrees across its center. For MOST people if you splay out your hand upward at arm's length so you can see all of your fingernails, the width of the nail on your pinky will be about 1º across. One odd real world comparison is that TWO full moons could fit side-to-side across that 1º.

What actually happens is that unless we are concentrating to watch a specific object, our field of view "spot-checks" around that center and mentally we fill in the details (and thus this illusion).

You can demonstrate this by putting that elephant image up on your screen then backing away until you can see enough of it to see the feet and enough of the rest of the elephant so you can perceive the drawing error. For me on my MBP where the image is about 4 inches across on my screen and covers about 8º across from where I normally sit (around 1.5 feet away), I have to back up from my screen to about 5 feet for the illusion to go away.
