For those who depend on the 'Magic Eyeball method' of doing some of their layout work, here is a little test that demonstrates how close to accurate is the eyeball. I ran across this on a woodworking site but it still applies to others who do layout.

That's an interesting test.

I'll ignore the fact that my wife is better at it than me... ::)

Speaking of eye tests, when I went in to renew my HI drivers license last year, I told the clerk I didn't need an eye test - I managed to tag three pedestrians, four cars and a fire hydrant on the way in. An HPD cop standing near by asked which eye I had closed at the time. I told him I had both closed. He turned to the clerk and told her to fail me - the minimum required pedestrians under those conditions is five.

God, I love Hawaii!

BEst regards,

I wonder if I get extra points for tagging an HPD cruiser ... I'll have to check on that. ;D

BEst regards,

PS: My score on the first trial was 8.94. I'll go back when my hands aren't shaking so bad and the mouse button gets released too early.

It is time to admit to my results at the test. My results include one really bad try at finding the center of the line. I tried to pull a fast one and stretched the line way off to the side making a long pointed V. This was a big mistake, it said I only missed the center by some 60+ units (color me sad) After that I settled down and didn't try any more tricks and ended up with a 6.6 score. I'm afraid to try the test again because even without making this mistake I'd probably do worse and that would just make me feel bad.

My best has been 6.1

I don't feel too bad about that.
My 70 year old mother was here tonight and her best was only 6.5!

I think I need therapy! LOL

'Mrs. Falcon' here.

Rick, Tin CANNOT ignore the fact that HIS wife did better, cuz I'm here to tell it! He (conveniently?) doesn't remember his exact score - and mine wasn't that great really, at 5.20 (third try). BUT, he does acknowledge that I did better than he did.

Congrats Mrs. Falcon! :bow:

I'd say you are in the running for the top 5.

I would have done better but as doubleboost said, I also need a new mouse!
The sun glaring through the window moments before my wife tried it was also
a disadvantage for me. I must also add the worries of the global economy was
weighing very heavily on my mind at the time.

(Help me out here guys, I'm running out of excuses! LOL)
