Guess I'm not nerd enough, I don't get it.

I tried to look it up and all, but I can't find it and zooming in on one circle doesn't help either.  I don't do well with optical illusions.

I have many years of Chemistry

lol, I was surprised I got it just by staring at it for about a minute.  I only had to take one Chem class and I guess a little stuck with me.

Comment by Steph S. on September 1, 2012 at 7:43am
Looks like I will be looking it up too. Thank you James!
