Does OS X look more 3D to you if you tilt your head sideways?

    I've noticed this "phenomenon" ever since like 6 years ago, but never really bothered to ask anyone. Do you? I'm on a 10.5 machine right now and the aqua REALLY pops and looks more shiny and stuff when I tilt my head sideways.

    From a normal angle the reflections don't pop that much. Weird right? XD

    Only when I accidentally bang my head on the table tilting sideways.

    Seriously though, back in system 7 through 9 I noticed something similar. Windows and buttons were fat pixel lines you could magnify in ResEdit, and a couple pixels made a big difference in how 2D or 3D things looked.

    And yep... I'm noticing it too in OSX
