BANG YOUR HEAD! METAL "LEGEND" or TYPOGRAPHICAL SYMBOL .. . . . See for yourself, tonight at Barmacy! 8 pm

Are the lines above straight?

Obviously, yes.  I wouldn't ask you about it if they were actually as curved as they appear.

But WHY do they look so bent?

For a great explanation, check out this column, from Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy blog.

Totally apropos of nothing, but I wanted to use this image in the blog.
I think it will look good when I repost this on Facebook, and I want to draw in some more eyeballs.  (I also just think it's cool, on its own.)

Tonight's prestige quiz:


For each item below, if it's METAL, name an album.  If it's a TYPOGRAPHICAL symbol, draw it.
