Want to see if your peepers are good enough to fly for Planet Express? Well you're in luck, thanks to this Planet Express Pilot's Eye Chart in the alien language from Futurama by designer/Geekologie Reader David Johns. If Leela can do it, I'm sure you can too. No, no I'm not -- I bet you can't even navigate a shopping cart through the grocery store without taking out all the displays. Last time I went to the eye doctor I purposefully read the chart wrong hoping he'd hook me up with better than 20/20 vision. SPOILER: it doesn't work like that. I did get some really thick glasses though. Wearing them makes me ooky!

Bonus Futurama fun fact from Wikipedia!: Leela is the captain and pilot of the ship. Although Leela has only one eye, and therefore no depth perception, the sheer distance between objects in space makes human-level depth perception of limited use.
