But I won't give the answer away!

It's elementary, my dear Watson, not an optical illusion.

Come on, guys. I didn't even take chemistry, in high school. I took two years of physics, instead.

Yeah I zoomed in - it is an element from the Periodic Table.

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

Comment by Mriana on September 1, 2012 at 2:12pm

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.

Comment by Steph S. on September 1, 2012 at 11:03am
I can't see it very well on my iPhone
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.
