    Anybody else see a slight shape change between picture one and three?

    Picture three – looks like a perfect rectangle – opposite sides equal size
    Picture one, top looks slightly narrower than bottom.

    is this an optical illusion and if so, what’s the name for it. Otherwise, i’m off to Specsavers.

      I don’t know – but it looks to me like the top is slightly narrower than the bottom.

      If you take a picture from above the top is in the foreground (bigger), the bottom is further away (smaller). If you get it in the right spot it will look rectangular.

      As Father Ted would say: Small… Far Away

        One architectural detail that made the Acropolis so incredible for it’s time it that it looks straight, or rather, the columns looks straight from near and far away. They are anything but of course, completely off. I’m always amazed how they could manage that optical illusion, so pleasing to the human eye, and yet it seems beyond almost every architech of any public building in Ireland..

      coronation chicken is a recipe which was created for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 so obviously this gets up the dander of little irelanders

    But Michael Collins took an oath to the Crown. It’s one of the reasons the Civil War took place. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind.

    Coronation chicken is delish in a basic sort of way and there’s no other name for it. They could call it “mild curry mayo chicken” but they’d end up just having to explain to everyone that it’s coronation chicken.

        they are both correct though, it’s pretty rank. it looks like it was concocted by an indian and an irish as a two-fingered tribute to her majesty.
