              Why do you sometimes see this kind of effect on car wheels if they're driving at just the right speed? What's the frame rate of my eyeballs?

                                            Did this at a party in college. Had black lights and glow stickers on the end of the fan blades but set a strobe light to match fan speed to make the blades look stationary. The glow stickers though formed a greenish halo around the fan. It was a cool effect - until people who had a few drinks tried to touch it, were surprised it hurt to touch, and would try to touch it again.

                                            I also enjoy car wheels that spin so fast they look like they are spinning backwards slowly.

                                                            Your brain has a frame rate. Watch wheel rims on a car as they accellerate or decelerate. They'll appear to slow down, then reverse direction. If they could maintain the exact speed where the apparent direction changes, they would appear frozen. After all, in order for it to reverse direction, even apparently, it has to come to a full stop.

                                                                                        I used to have a wooden helicopter back like 2005 and would spin the blades as fast as I could in front of our living room TV.

                                                                                        Let me tell you how shocked 5 year old me was when it looked like they were starting to spin in reverse.
