Yes, well I enjoyed that as well. But what bothers me is the amount of money that's paid to these designers, do they lead such insular lives that nobody in the office that produced this "masterpiece" noticed the "faux pas"? Or is it a bit more conspiratorial than that and working on the principal that all publicity is good publicity however bad it is...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Remember the old BT logo that was a bit unfortunate when rotated 90 deg clockwise?

alanf,
when you said that I seem to recall there were altogether 4 positions, each begging a translation.
The last one in the series seemed to be about right.
I think it related to rotund objects and the relative position in the rotation series.
