Gray Spotlight Wide Google

Sometimes people spot the weirdest things with Google. The latest was spotted by Eliyahu Speiser and Andrew Stein and posted on Google+.

In short, Google is sometimes drawing text and characters vertically across the Google search results page. They told me they tested this on several machines, both with and without Hebrew fonts installed. I personally cannot replicate this myself but they shared these screen shots:

I am pretty sure I've seen these issues before but it is always fun to see these weird Google layout issues.
