Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-25
Things aren't what they seem, don't judge a deviation by it's thumbnail... read between the lines by ~emplifya. Our Suggester tells us: "A very well done optical illusion! And the title fits perfectly, don't you think?" ( Suggested by WhiteKimahri and Featured by ChewedKandi )

As a writer, I wonder if you were also thinking of literary devices? Wonderful inner sound devices: assonance, consonance and alliteration, especially with the "rEAlly rEAd betwEEn" - it's musical, and I liked reading out aloud while looking at the image.

can someone please explain why this is genius?
if there's a hidden message then i'm not seeing it... just "i really read between the lines" constructed with some parallel black lines, with parallel gray lines in the background.

haha let your mind kind of wander, your eyes unfocus, and it makes the words wave,
nothing is in between the lines as much as I saw.

"don't judge a deviation by it's thumbnail" as the DD comment says, is definitely the wrong message here... since it's easier to read in thumbnail format.

I find it a bit difficult to view at normal size.

I have often debated the value behind the message though.
