On the left are 49 colored patches. On the right I have randomly shuffled these same 49 colored patches. This dramatically affects the colored surfaces and lights that you see.

” Super Size Me “ is not a serious look at a real health problem. It is, instead, an outrageously dishonest and dangerous piece of self-promotion. Through his antics, Spurlock sends precisely the wrong message. He absolves us of responsibility for our own fitness. We aren’t to blame for being fat; big corporations are! And the remedy, he suggests, is to file lawsuits and plead with the Nanny State and the Food Police for protection. From Read More
