June 19, 2010: Table Test
Simple test, which table is bigger?

Related, but simpler, and less about being tricked: The Eyeballing Game.

No matter what, it's always eight inches.

Of course it is.

The green one is bigger. It can seat 6 people; the red one can only seat 4.

Is Zen aware of this?

Bigger is ambiguous. Do you mean greater area or taller?

I counted the markings on the rug pattern, and came up with a larger surface area for the red table. I have no ruler, so in my universe, the red one is larger.

I think they are not the same size. They may take up the same area/amount of space, but one is longer than the other, one is wider than the other. That's two (2) different sizes.

The tables may have the same size in pixels on the computer screen, but if you measure them against the square floor tiles, the red table is about 5.25 tiles long and 2.25 tiles wide. The green one is 3.25 tiles wide by 3.25 tiles wide.
