    So I was playing around with Table Views today and when I made this view I thought there was something wrong at first. It looks like the purple squares are slanted, but if you look closely you can tell that they are actually perfectly aligned. I thought it was pretty cool. Let me know if you guys can see it too.

    Pretty nifty. If I look at the whole picture and the top square it looks slanted, but if I look at the top then go down they all look straight. Interesting.

    If you look at the top square, it appears as though some of the lower squares are slanted rather than straight up and down.

    its kind of a stretch, but I see the illusion. it would probably work better without the gray lines

    The gray lines are what causes the illusion, without them it wouldn't work at all.

    The lines and the squares working together cause the illusion. Without the lines it will just look like some purple squares, no illusion.
